Go Fish Cupcakes


baked cupcakes
pastry bag (optional)
blue frosting
heavy thread
pretzel sticks
gummy fish


1. Allow baked cupcakes to cool.
2. Fill the pastry bag with frosting and pipe out a swirly wave pattern. (Or you can spread it with a knife.)
3. Tie thread to a pretzel stick to make a fishing pole.
4. Press toothpick into the “mouth” of the gummy fish to make a hole. Push the end of the thread into the hole. (The gummy candy will close over the thread.)
5. Place the pretzel in the frosting to make it look like you just “caught the big one!”
