I love Martha Stewart! Is she not the most brilliant Mommy around? Ok, yeah, so she’s an ex-convict. Well nobody’s perfect :/
The Martha Stewart’s shark cupcakes sparked a shark birthday party obsession that spanned 2 months. But I had so much fun with whole process!

The cake flavors are red velvet (for blood in the water) and chocolate (Chief’s and Dad’s favorite).
The shark cupcakes I saw by A Baked Creation are what made me go out and buy a professional set of frosting tips with the big one to produce ocean waves.
Martha used paper shark fins but I wanted only wanted edible cupcake toppers and I hate fondant. So I was really happy to found Amanda Grant’s blog, The Martha Initiative, where I got the idea of using fruit strips. They worked and they were tasty!
I learned to blend the 2 frosting colors from a YouTube tutorial from Blue Door Bakery.

Oh, and please excuse the spiderman underoos. He’s going through his “I just wanna let it all hang out” phase. Boys! I have to bribe him just to put on (and keep on) his underwear. Hope this phase ends soon :/
