  • Place the pink candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Tip: I like to use paper bowls for easy clean up. Melt in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Place melted candy into one of the piping bags and snip off the tip. Pipe into tail molds, tap molds to settle. Chill to set.
  • Once the pink tails are hardened, release from the mold by turning upside down.
  • Repeat step 1 with the blue candy melts.
  • Frost cupcakes with desired tip from the cupcake kit. (The kit comes with a round tip and a start tip.)
  • Top cupcakes with sprinkles and a mermaid tail.



You can use store bought cupcakes or a box mix, or make one of my favorites:
