These Koi Goldfish Cupcakes are seriously WAY too cute!! Another genius idea from the gurus behind Hello, Cupcake!, this design is actually from their follow up (and equally fabulous) book: What’s New, Cupcake?.
The fish – which are made from those squishy orange circus peanuts, orange peanut butter M&M’s, brown M&M’s Minis, vanilla frosting as the “glue”, and orange cereal O’s (Fruit Loops or Apple Jacks) – sit on top of light blue-frosted cupcakes.
The cupcakes are displayed on top of blue & white paper circles (with blue & white M&Ms sprinkled around) for a fun “Koi Pond” look.
As cute as these cupcakes would be for a kids party, I think adults would appreciate them just as much, and I can’t imagine a more perfect dessert idea for a “Kissing Fish” (or “Of All the Fish in the Sea…”) bridal shower or engagement party theme!
So… using the cupcakes as inspiration, here are some more ideas for this theme:
