I made a batch of chocolate cupcakes with this Homemade Chocolate Cake Mix.  You can use a boxed mix, or a scratch recipe if you prefer.

Then I made this homemade Raspberry icing. YUM!

 Frost cupcakes and coat ½ of each cupcake in brown sugar to create sand. This is already cute for any type of beach themed cupcake!

Decorate with Teddy Grahams and Fruit by the Foot and add a drink umbrella. You can get as creative as you want on these. Or, just turn the kid loose with the supplies and let them create their own beach scene!
