I know the cupcake frenzy of the past few years has died down a bit, but they are still one of my favorite shenanigans. This summer I came across many cute summer themed cupcakes on Pinterest, but none of them were as adorable as these Teddy Graham sunbathing cupcakes. I knew these would be perfect for summer themed parties and little kids.


Here is what you will need:

  • Cake mix (I used Funfetti)
  • Fruit rollups (Multicolors)
  • Gummy Life Savers
  • Teddy Grahms
  • Icing
  • Tiny Drink Umbrellas (I couldn’t find them so I made my own umbrella with colorful Cupcake liners and a straw)


1) Bake your cupcakes, let cool then cover them with a layer of icing.

2) Fill a small zip lock bag with some teddy grahms. Use your hands to crush them into “sand,” and pour it into a bowl


3) Dip your iced cupcake into the bowl so that a layer of sand sticks to the top.

4) Unroll your fruit roll up and cut a square around your teddy graham (this will be his towel).


5) Get creative! I put the teddy on the side and then used my straws and cupcake liners to make a little umbrella, then added a finishing touch of a gummy life saver. You can also put your teddy grahams inside the life savers and dye some of your icing blue to create a little teddy graham beach!




Although summer is coming to a close there is coming to a close you can keep on celebrating with these adorable little guys.
