I used the Mermaid Cupcake Decorating Kit to make mermaid cupcakes to share with a friend’s daughter. She loved them! I loved that I could use a boxed cake mix, icing, and the Wilton DIY-Lish Kit to make adorable cupcakes that look like they came from a store!

The Mermaid Cupcake Decorating Kit had the supplies to decorate 12 cupcakes — a mermaid tail candy mold, Candy Melts, 12 printed baking cups, four 12-inch decorating bags, two plastic decorating tips, and cute sea-themed sprinkles.

I like that the mold can be reused to make even more treats. And you could change out the color of the candy melts and sprinkles to make your own version of mermaid cupcakes.
