Pina Colada Cupcakes

Regular Goldie

Time to make some cupcakes for Rita’s birthday. I decided to go with a box mix this time because 1) they are easy; 2) they are so moist and yummy; and 3) no one can tell the difference! Of course i added some stuff to it to jazz it up. See below for recipe.

Time to decorate! Toasted coconut for the “sand”, goldfish crackers (colored and graham/smores flavor) for the fishies, frosting for the ocean and seaweed, and sprinkles for the bubbles.
