Sweet Suprise for a friend!
My friend invited me to a swim team gala she was having at her house for members of our local community. It was an adult social event for the parents of all those talented kiddies on the highly acclaimed town swim team. Sadly, my kids are NOT on the swim team and even more sad is that two out of three of my children are non-swimmers-but, that's a story for a different blog--back to the cupcakes!! She invited my husband and I to her "casual cocktails" event and we gladly jumped at the chance to have a night out. My mind starting working as to what kind of cupcakes I could suprise her with for the evening. I had wanted to do some summer themed cupcakes and started working on some fondant cut-outs and carvings and naturally you can guess what type of cupcakes she received---I present my beach themed cupcakes for a dear friend who allowed some "non-swimming parents" to her swim team party! Hope you like them!! Most of the cupcake toppers are made from tinting gumpaste and fondant. I created several templates for the fish and shovels and the rest just tried to be creative with!!
