Beachy Cupcakes

I am wrapping up my summer baking with a few more projects and then I am moving onto fall!  But, before we enjoy the fall I wanted to share with you these beachy cupcakes I made this week.  There isn't a recipe, just more or less assembly instructions.  I used a ready-made butter pecan cake mix and made the cupcakes.  

Here is the frosting I used in caramel flavor to make the icing look like sand.  I hand sprinkled brown sugar on top of the frosting to make the top of the cupcake look even more like sand.

To top off the cupcake I made a white chocolate shell with this mold from my sponsor Wholeport.com.  This silicone food grade mold worked perfect with the chocolate and it is easy to use and clean up in the dishwasher.

Oh, how I wished I lived close enough to a beach to go sink my toes in the sand one more time before sweater weather!   Enjoy what's left of summer!

Thank you to my Sponsor Wholeport.com for providing the shell baking mold.

The beachy cupcakes look delicious and I LOVE the white chocolate seashells. I don't normally use cake mix, but butter pecan with caramel frosting...YUM! I'll try it. Thanks for the "recipe".
