Today doesn’t feel like summer but soon enough it will be summer. This summer I am moving to Florida by the beach! I am beyond excited to be by the ocean. My daughter and I love to collect shells from the beach. She will take any piece of shell and I’m a little more picky with the ones I pick out. We have a bunch in jars that I still need to figure out what to do with. I think they make cute decorations just like that or maybe we can paint them. That’s the story of my life collecting things for later projects that never happen. She also tries to look in the shells to see if there is anything living inside or a pearl. We have found a few clam shells but nothing was left inside. I thought clam shells would make adorable treats for a beach or mermaid party! These were so easy to make! Since the frosting is on the inside it does not matter if you are a pro at piping frosting. I did use a piping bag and a star tip but you could just use a bag with the corner cut off for the frosting.
I’m in serious need of some beach time. I’m sure we all are, am I right?! I used to live in San Diego but now I live in Phoenix. When it gets to this time of year I miss the beach. I just want to put my feet in the sand. For now I will have to settle for a pool. Even if I can’t get the real thing it is a great time of year for beach themed parties. These beach sandals cupcakes are perfect for summer and beach parties. They’re simple to make and you can bring the beach to you! I just love making(eating) cupcakes and needed to get my cupcake fix.
