Mermaid Tail Cupcakes

Who doesn’t love colorful mermaid tail cupcakes? The maker of this tutorial wanted to pack in as many colors as possible into these mermaid theme cupcakes, so she also used colorful batters. You can do this, too, just by mixing several colors into your vanilla cupcake batter. She used pink, blue, and purple – classic mermaid color combinations. But you can customize these cupcakes and use your preferred colors. To make this cupcake, you’ll also need to invest a little bit by buying a silicone mold for your mermaid tails and seashells. Then all that’s left is just melting some candy melts into the mold.
