1

To make the crab, roll out two, big red gumdrops on a piece of wax paper dusted with a generous amount of granulated sugar to prevent sticking. Cut out two ovals with the cutter.

2

Snip six pieces, about 1 ½-inches long, of liquorice lace for each crab. smush the liquorice onto the top of one gumdrop oval, using dabs of light corn syrup, if needed, to adhere. Top with the other gumdrop oval and smush together a bit. Add two candy eyes on top with dabs of light corn syrup as glue.

3

To make the fish, roll out a gumdrop on wax paper dusted with sugar, just as with the crab. Use scissors to cut out a fish shape. Add a candy eye with a dab of light corn syrup.

4

For “ocean” cupcake, pipe a swirl on the cupcake. For “beach” cupcake, frost the cupcake with light brown frosting and dip in light brown sugar. To put fish on a pole, thread an embroidery needle with a piece of baker’s twine, push through the fish and tie a knot. Tie another knot around the end of a lollipop stick.
