Make your own magical mermaid tail cupcakes for a birthday or baby shower. You’ll need a Silicone Mold Mermaid Tail as well as Disposable Piping Bags and Edible Glue to make these fantastical treats. There are so many varieties on this simple design and below I will show you some of my favorites

How to Make Easy and Yummy Mermaid Cupcakes
– Cake mix (white or vanilla)
– Ingredients listed on the box
– Food coloring (pink, teal, blue, and purple)
– 1 cup of butter
– 3-4 cups of powdered sugar
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
– 2-3 tablespoons of cream
– Mermaid sprinkle mix
– Pink, blue, teal, and purple candy melts
– Edible silver glitter or spray
– Mermaid cupcake toppers

Making the mermaid tails for the cupcakes takes some time, so start the day before. Melt the candy melts one at a time – microwave for 35 seconds, stir, and reheat as needed. Portion about 1/4 to 1/3 cup of the melts into the mermaid silicone mold and let set at least 2 hours. Let the tails set on the counter to avoid melting in the fridge. Keep them in an airtight container on the counter. Make your cupcakes according to the instructions on the box and allow to cool once baked. To make the frosting, combine the butter, sugar and vanilla extract.
Add the cream until you reach your desired consistency. Smear your frosting on the cooled cupcakes and place your tails in each. Enjoy!
