    Those cupcakes and ocean cups are SO stinkin’ cute, I love that idea! That might be just the ticket for chasing away the winter blahs at our house :)

      Thank you! Ocean cups look better than they taste . . . the gummy candy in jell-o tasted so weird but we loved what it added to the party. I ate “around” the octopus and shark! Haha! You totally should have a beach party. That is right up your alley!!
