Luau Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago we received a last minute request for 5 dozen cupcakes for a luau birthday party. Given more notice we would have loved to have ordered surfboards to top the cupcakes with, but as it was the paper parasols worked out just fine on their own.

The "sand" on the top of the cupcakes was ground up graham crackers and the umbrellas were functional as well as decorative. Each different colored umbrella indicated a different flavor of cupcake:
  • Blue = vanilla
  • Yellow = lemon
  • Pink = strawberry
  • Ocean and sand (blue frosting) = chocolate

We would have LOVED to have The Frosted Cake Shop do these-- but for this party there just wasn't enough time (or budget) for 5 dozen of their gorgeously decorated creations.


  1. Did you make these yourself? They look great!

  2. These look yummy!!! I'm sure my kids would love them. We'll be having a big party for the family and relatives this coming Christmas, and they're all excited. I'm planning to add something on the menu, and these cupcakes are great! I guess I need to call the tent rentals (Sacramento) for additional canopy to accommodate these extras. Thanks for sharing!
