Finding Dory Ocean Water Cupcakes | Perfect for a Finding Dory Party, pool party, or to celebrate shark week! I fashioned this cupcake after the popular raspberry lemon lime ocean water punch. Along with my Water Splash Frosting these cupcakes are perfect for any kid’s summer party. What a great way to add a splash of fun to your party.

Up close look at the cupcake stand. The Dory figures are from Target.
You can use a white cake mix or make my Favorite Vanilla Cupcake Recipe (I’ll have directions for both below). To give the batter little pops of flavor, I mixed in some blueberry jello powder to some of the batter. I found the cute Finding Dory Cupcake Toppers (link) on Amazon.
For the Water Splash Frosting use TWO #104 tips for the splash and a #12 for the center. To color the frosting divide into 2 bowls. One for the center (white), the least amount. Add blue food coloring to the second bowl. WATCH OUT not too much! This will be the lighter blue (the second splash layer). Remove half of the frosting from the second bowl into another bowl and add more blue food coloring. This will be the bottom layer of the darker blue.
Start with the bottom layer (dark blue frosting) with one hand turn the cupcake and with the other one hold the piping bag and go in and out from the inside to the outside making sure the skinny part of the tip is facing the inside of the cupcake.
Continue with the lighter blue.
Pipe a dollop of the white in the center.
