Pool Party Cupcakes

My friend Kristine's daughter is turning 4, and her birthday party is tomorrow. To celebrate they chose to host a pool party! That is one of the best things to do in Texas in July. With temperatures near 100 almost everyday there is no better choice. Although playing cards in your refrigerator comes in a close second. LOL

A couple of weeks ago, my friend and I chatted about cakes and cupcakes for the party. We finally decided on pool and sun cupcakes. Primarily because the Teddy Graham bears in inner tubes were SO CUTE!

While making these cupcakes I learned something new about Teddy Grahams. Some bears are made with their arms up in the air, and others are made with their arms down at their side. Random thing to learn, I know, but it's important when you are putting them in candy inner tubes. If your bear has his arms up he looks like he is having fun in the pool. Splashing around in his puddle of frosting. If they are down, the candy inner tube sits up around his neck and makes him look like he is drowning! Just a piece of's not ideal to have drowning bears as cupcake decorations at a pool party. :)

Have a great party tomorrow Camryn. Enjoy your cupcakes!

Happy Baking,
