I used flamingo, watermelon, pineapples and ice cream (some of my fav summer icons!) as the sugar decorations on top of the "sandy beach" frosting, but you can totally vary the sprinkles and sugar toppers to match your own summer theme!

My chosen cupcakes are simple vanilla and chocolate (store-bought), and the frosting is my go-to easy cream cheese frosting with a dash of the good stuff - coconut rum!

Next time I make these, I plan to up the ante in the pina colada front, with a hollowed out cupcake filled with pineapple compote! That would be so good, right?

I only had that idea later on, but the coconut rum was quite enough to take my standard cupcake frosting into summer party deliciousness!

Of course, if you're making these for kids, you can omit the coconut rum in the recipe, and substitute it with a teaspoon of vanilla, or lime or pineapple juice for a tropical taste.

  3. To decorate the cupcakes: Dip a cooled cupcake into the frosting, then immediately dip them into the cookie crumbs. Shake off the excess crumbs.
  4. Decorate the top with summer sugar decorations and sprinkles. Use a little frosting to secure the toppers in place if needed.
