D is for Desert Island Cupcake Recipe

Make a cupcake shaped like a desert island.


  • 1 large cupcake
  • Blue frosting
  • White frosting
  • Assorted gummy fish and sharks
  • Ground nuts
  • Green craft paper
  • 1 pretzel rod
  • Candy seashells


  1. Unwrap the cupcake and turn it upside down. Frost the bottom two thirds with blue icing, swirling it to give the appearance of waves, and the top third with white icing.
  2. Place the gummy fish and sharks in the "sea." Sprinkle the ground nuts onto the white icing for a sandy beach.
  3. Make a palm tree by cutting fronds out of the green paper and fastening them with icing to the top of the pretzel rod. Plant the palm on the island and have a few candy shells wash up on the beach. Now, this is a desert island.
