  • Blue cake frosting
  • Marzipan, store bought
  • Red gel food coloring
  • White fondant, store bought
  • Red candy melts
  • Black confetti sprinkles
  • Red decorator icing
  • Rubber gloves (optional)

How to make it

  1. Place marzipan in a bowl and add a few dollops of red gel food coloring. Knead the food coloring into the marzipan to incorporate. You can wear rubber gloves to keep food coloring off hands, or wash hands immediately after mixing.

  2. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Frost the cupcakes with blue frosting and set aside.

  3. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Pinch off a piece of red marzipan and roll it into a small oval. Roll a tiny piece of marzipan into a snake and cut it into two equally sized pieces. The oval will be Sebastian's head. The two small snakes will form Sebastian's lips.

  4. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Press the lips to the bottom of the oval head. Roll two small white fondant balls for eyes.

  5. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Press the fondant eyes right above Sebastian's mouth.

  6. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Add black confetti pupils and roll two small teardrop shapes from the Marzipan for Sebastian's claws.

  7. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Place a candy melt in the center of the cupcake as Sebastian's shell. Add his head and claws.

  8. Sebastian Cupcakes

    Finally, draw on legs and connect claws to his body with the red decorator icing.

  9. Serve cupcakes on a plate covered with brown sugar "sand."
