container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla or butter cream frosting
Blue food color

cocktail straws

Betty Crocker™ Shark Bites™ chewy fruit snacks (2 to 3 pouches)

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cake as directed on box for 24 cupcakes.
  • 2 Stir together frosting and 2 or 3 drops food color. Frost cupcakes with blue frosting; pull up on frosting, using metal spatula, so frosting looks like waves.
  • 3 To make fishing poles, cut each straw to make one 3-inch piece. Cut dental floss into 3 1/2-inch lengths. Attach piece of dental floss to end of each straw, using needle, to look like fish line. Attach 1 fruit snack to end of each piece of dental floss. Decorate each cupcake with a fishing pole. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

Keep the party theme going by serving blue raspberry punch with “fishy” ice cubes. Place 1 Shark Bites® chewy fruit snack in each section of an ice-cube tray. Fill with ginger ale or water, and freeze until solid.

Find out what the party boy or girl’s favorite cake flavor is, and use that instead of the devil’s food cake mix.

If you have only one pan and a recipe calls for more cupcakes than your pan will make, cover and refrigerate the rest of the batter while baking the first batch. Cool the pan about 15 minutes, then bake the rest of the batter, adding 1 to 2 minutes to the bake time.
