DIY Shark Attack Cupcake Toppers

Here’s a quick and easy way to make your cupcakes sweet, but not precious. Whether you’re playing tribute to Jaws or a certain hardcore band, no one will forget your Shark Attack Cupcakes.

I like to bake my Shark Attack cupcakes in bright red baking cups from Bake It Pretty – any flavor will do, but red velvet is particularly gory. (I use Super Red by AmeriColor for the truest color.) I top my cupcakes with a white buttercream – cream cheese frosting is great on red velvet – then I spray the tops with blue food color spray.

Drag a toothpick through the icing, creating realistic white caps. Cut out my DIY Shark Attack cupcake toppers, and tape or glue them to toothpicks. Pop them in your cupcakes when you’re ready to serve them (the grease from your frosting will creep up on the fins, so really wait until you’re showing these off for this step.)

“Smile you son of a bitch.”
