  • 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.
