Catch an ocean wave with these super cute Sea Punk Cupcakes! They are the color of a cool blue ocean, covered in sprinkles, and so much fun! They will add a fun pop of color to any dessert table. They are fun enough for a pool party and make a perfect birthday cake.
They are just a twist on a regular cupcake which makes them totally easy to make! You know I love a gorgeous cupcake and this is one of my favorites.
Making these Sea Punk Cupcakes just takes a few steps: baking the cupcake, creating the frosting, coloring and shaping the frosting, and adding the rainbow sprinkles.
So first things first, creating the cupcake. When you make strawberry cupcakes from scratch, your ingredient list is just a bit quirky! Like for example, if you want to get a creamy yet tart cupcake with a whole lot of strawberry flavor, you will need fresh strawberries — and — surprise! sour cream. Sour cream will give you a flavor that’s out of this world. I highly recommend any recipe that contains sour cream but especially in strawberry cupcakes!
What’s so fun is that we added a turquoise blue food dye to the frosting. It makes it the perfect color to go with our strawberry pink cupcake! When we frost these cupcakes, we made them super messy so they would look like waves crashing.
You can find turquoise food dye online or at most cake and craft supply stores. Food dye that you buy at these places are highly concentrated, so you will just need to use a tiny dot.
Your next step is to roll the edges in sprinkles! That’s the fun part. Just put the sprinkles on a plate, and while the frosting is still wet, just gently and slowly roll them around. They certainly don’t need to be perfect. I made some of mine move up the sides and others have less sprinkles all together. I tried to make everyone a little different. It turns the cupcakes into a party!
So where are you going to serve your adorable Sea Punk Cupcakes? A themed party? A girls night? Or just for fun? Tell us in the comments. We would love to hear all about your baking adventures!
