We celebrated Father's Day yesterday, June 18th, 2011 and it was special for all of us but particularly for Ben and Tyler!
Both Ben and I continue to miss our own special father's but we know they are watching over us and realize the love we have for them. We are so thankful that they set such great examples for us and loved us unconditionally!!!
Ben loves to fish and in fact did so on Saturday morning...so these cupcakes were just perfect for the occasion...at least he caught a fish on land!!!
The fish poles are simply skewers that I cut off a little so they would be the right size for the cupcakes. Little gummy fish or Swedish fish can be used. With carpet thread and a darning needle just "sew" through the eye area of fish and tie in a knot...then wrap the remaining thread around the upper part of pole and tie tightly. The fish should hang down an inch or two.
I made white cupcakes and frosted them with buttercream frosting (tinted blue) and sprinkled the tops with edible glitter.
Some time ago I made cupcake pedestals and they were perfect for the fishy cupcakes...the hanging fish were free to hang!
