Aquarium Cupcakes

I made these cute cupcakes for Taylor.  He saw them and thought they were cool.  They are super easy and quick to make.  They are made with tinted blue frosting, Swedish Fish and Nerds.  I only put one Swedish Fish on each cupcake as Tony ate most of them before they made it to the cupcakes. The same with the Nerds, Taylor ate most of them before hand. I am amazed that I can actually get any Pictures taken of my food.  My family is like a bunch of vultures. They are always circling the kitchen when I am cooking and baking.  I guess today they were more like sharks, circling their prey !!

1 box favorite cakemix
1 container white frosting
1 box swedish fish
1 box nerds
blue food coloring

Follow the directions on the cake mix box and make into cupcakes.  Bake as directed.  Let cupcakes cool.  In the meantime, add 1-2 drops of blue food coloring to the frosting.  Mix well.  Add more food coloring until you reach desired shade of blue.  I like it a medium blue shade.  Once the cupcakes are cool, frost them.  The blue frosting is the aquarium water.  Add nerds to the bottom of the frosting as the aquarium gavel.  Add a Swedish Fish to the middle of the cupcake to resemble a fish swimming in the aquarium.
