What you'll need

  • 24 cupcakes
  • 2 (16-ounce) cans of vanilla frosting
  • food coloring (yellow, orange, blue, green)
  • M&M's
  • candy fruit slice
  • toothpicks

Great for pool parties or parties with mermaid or under-the-sea themes.

How to make it

  1. Spoon 1/3 cup of the frosting into a ziplock bag and set it aside.

  2. In a bowl, tint 1/2 cup of the frosting with yellow food coloring. Evenly divide the remaining frosting among three more bowls and tint one portion orange, one blue, and one green. Cover all but one of the bowls with plastic wrap.

  3. Following the photo above, frost the first group of colored cupcake fi sh, then press four rows of identically colored M&M scales into each as shown (you'll need two 1-pound bags of M&M's altogether). Add 2 red M&M lips.

  4. Snip a corner from the frosting bag, then pipe a frosting eye onto each fish and press a brown M&M on top. Repeat with the remaining cupcakes and frosting, then assemble them into a fish shape.

  5. Use a toothpick to attach a candy fruit slice onto five or six of the cupcakes as shown.
