Cue JAWS music…

When deciding what to take for our Jimmy Buffett tailgating experience, I of course thought of making cupcakes! I made the Margarita cupcakes but also wanted something more traditional… I saw a picture of some beach and shark cupcakes and thought they were really cute and very fitting.

As usual, when I make more than 1 kind of recipe, I make one from scratch and one from a box. I made the margarita cupcakes from scratch and used the WW Diet Coke method on these babies.

Diet Coke Cupcakes – 2 WW pts

1 box cake mix – I used Devil’s Food
1 can of diet coke – any variety will do – I used Diet Dr Pepper
1 egg white (to help hold it all together)

Follow directions on box for cake or cupcakes except use only ingredients listed above.

I used store bought frosting that and dyed it blue.

    Thanks Elina! I used this recipe for Irish Car Bomb cupcakes from Smitten Kitchen. I’ll do a full post with the recipe and details later.

    Thanks for the inspiration; I had seen the general idea elsewhere but never thought about doing it for sports logos for some reason. I made a few cupcake toppers this afternoon that I’ll be posting soon. (peasandcues.wordpress.com) Great idea!!

    I actually prefer the yellow sprinkles to the idea of yellow/gold frosting. It makes them look SO CHIC

    I don’t know if the frosting or actually cupcake was my favorite part, so good I had to bring one to work with me on Monday.
