I used a basic vanilla cupcake recipe. Add all ingredients to a bowl, and mix until light. Bake in an oven at 180c for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
100g- Self raising Flour
100g- Caster Sugar
2- Medium Eggs
1 tsp- Baking Power
1 tsp- Vanilla Extract
To decorate I uses a basic buttercream half or which I added blue food colouring too.
200g- Icing Sugar
To make the sand I used crushed Shortcake Biscuits, but you can use any biscuit you like. For the details I used mini cocktail umbrellas which I found on Ebay and these Dr Oetker Jelly Slices as little beach towels. To assemble I spread the plain buttercream icing on half of the cupcake and sprinkled on the crushed biscuits. Then piped on the blue icing in wave and added the details.
