Under the Sea Cupcakes

These Under the Sea Cupcakes are so simple and fun to create.


  • 1 White Box Cake Mix
  • 1 can of your favorite vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup marshmallow fondant or white modeling chocolate
  • Yellow GEL food coloring
  • Blue GEL food coloring
  • Teal GEL food coloring
  • Silver pearl sprinkles (found at my local grocer)
  • 24 candy eyeballs
  • Wax paper (just to set your marshmallow fondant on)
  • Star decorating tip and bag


  • Make Cupcakes Per Box Cake Mix Directions.
  • Spoon into lined cupcake pan. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool cupcakes completely before decorating.
  • Break marshmallow fondant into ¼ and ¾ portions. Work 15-20 drops of yellow GEL food coloring into larger portion of marshmallow fondant. Break yellow marshmallow fondant into 12 small pieces.
  • Form each of the 12 pieces into a ball, then roll it into a fat cylinder. Make one end of your cylinder very thin and the other very fat. This is your fish body.
  • With the remainder ¼ of the marshmallow fondant, work in 5-10 drops of blue food coloring. Break off a very small portion, roll into a ball and flatten it.
  • Make 3 more identical flattened balls. These are the side fins and tail fins.
  • Place side and tail fins on fish body in the appropriate locations.
