We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

Yesterday, the lovely Jackie posted my tutorial for Shark Cupcakes on her blog, La Casa de Sweets. Today, I’ll show you how to make the shark fin cupcake toppers!

If the shark cookie toppers are too much work or if you want additional toppers to accompany them, these fin cookies are super easy to make! The best part is that you only need a simple heart cookie cutter to make these, like this one:

To make these toppers, you’ll need:

– Rolled cookie dough

– Heart cookie cutter

– Knife

– Craft picks or lollipop sticks

– Gray royal icing

– Piping bag with tip #3

– Cupcakes

– Buttercream tinted blue

– Spatula

Start by cutting out the heart shape.

With the heart shape flipped upside down, use your knife to cut the bottom off. It will look like this:

Using the heart cutter, cut an arc into the fin to shape the curved rear portion of the fin.

You’ll end up with a cookie shaped like this:

Gently insert a pick into the bottom of the shark fin. This will make your cookies more like cupcake toppers. I used Woodsies Craft Picks (they were the perfect size for the cupcakes) but you can use lollipop sticks as well – just make sure that the sticks are on the small side.

And now it’s time to decorate the fins!

Use the gray royal icing in your piping bag and outline the shark fin.

Immediately flood the gray outline. Let it dry for a couple of hours.

Now all you have to do is make some cupcakes and use your spatula to spread the buttercream on like waves.

And FIN!
