Ahoy, matey! Have you ever seen such sweet looking crab cakes? Normally when you hear someone say “crab cakes”, you picture a savory snack with a side of fries and tartar sauce, but we’re here to flip that on its head! These crab cupcakes make the perfect dessert for any summer bash, pool party, or nautical themed event. And here’s a tip: if the weather is scorching where you live and you’re avoiding turning the oven on, these tasty toppers are a great way to jazz up plain store-bought cupcakes.
If these cupcakes look a little familiar to you, you’re not wrong! Last summer we made these playful lobster cupcakes using red gummy candies too! This time around, we noticed that Hot Lips gummies were the absolute perfect shape for a crab, so couldn’t help but whip these guys up too. Keep reading for the full how-to below!
what you need:
- Frosted cupcakes
- Hot Lips gummy candies
- Mike and Ike candies (red)
- Red shoestring licorice
- White sprinkles
Cut four more pieces of red shoestring licorice, just longer than 1/4″ long this time. Place them below the Hot Lips, two on the left and two on the right.
