- Cupcakes (any flavor)
- Swiss Meringue Buttercream for Cupcake Decorating
- Finely ground graham cracker crumbs
- Box grater
Frost tops of cupcakes with buttercream, then dip in graham cracker crumbs to cover. Sprinkle with more crumbs.
Roll a heaping teaspoon of marzipan into a ball. Flatten slightly into a disk, then shape into a 5-pointed star. Gently press star against small holes of a box grater for texture. Place starfish on a cupcake, textured side up.
