Pull-Apart Beach Cupcakes 01:10

These pull-apart beach cupcakes are a summer party crowd-pleaser.

Nothing wows a crowd more than cupcakes — except awesome cupcake creations. This week’s Most Popular Pin of the Week, a fun, pull-apart design made up of multiple cupcakes, upgrades boxed cake mix into a totally edible beach scene. Baking the cake inside ice cream cones makes it easy to grab one treat at a time, and adding blue food coloring to basic vanilla icing is a simple way to transform the frosting into an ocean of sweet deliciousness. Fruit candies shaped like ocean life set the scene for little bear-shaped cookies to enjoy an awesome day at the beach.
