Sharknado Cupcake Recipe

Shark Week "Sharknado" Cupcakes Recipe, take a bite out of Shark Week with these airy and delicious cupcakes! Filled with Very Berry "Blood" they are sure to be a hit, just like the movie, when served in a fun Luau, Halloween Party or just a fun gathering !

Hola Amigos! I'm sure by now you are all excited about the best film of this summer season: Sharknado!!!! Nothing celebrates Shark Week better than a powerful whirlwind carrying thousands of sharks ready to devour an entire city!!! Ok, Ok...so the movie is one of the dumbest syfy films so far...borderline comedy! but Shark Week is still awesome and to celebrate my love of all things shark and bad acting, I made fun cupcakes!


This is a tongue in cheek kind of post, if you are sensitive to realistic looking gummy sharks and fake blood, better read tomorrow's post I promise you it will be a serious one, but for now...you've been warned, if you are game, sit down and enjoy a few of my favorite personal Shark Facts.

I love sharks! Since little I learned to admire them and to fear them. We were at the beach every weekend and the rule was, if you hear dad yell "Get Out Of The Water" you just did it! no questions ask! Ever!!! I'm sure you know why...

My Grad School thesis was about the Economical vs Biological Impact of the Commercialization of Sharks (specific species). I got high scores from the 3 judging professors whoot whoot...lol..I think I know my sharks alright!
Shark Week "Sharknado" Cupcakes Recipe, Shark Week will never be the same after you take a bite our of these fun cupcakes, Filled with a "Bloody" delicious raspberry filling they are great for a creepy Luau, a Halloween Hawaiian Gathering or just plain fun!

Believe it or not, I know how to prepare a killer Shark Fin Soup! From collecting, drying, removing skin to separating and bleaching the little fibers to make the soup, which is a delicacy in Asian cultures. My dad thought me the process and it's an experience I will never forget. Note: We never killed a shark for this purpose, sometimes fisherman have a few as bycatch for the day.

We are a bigger threat to sharks than they are to us. Granted nobody wants to be attacked or eaten by a shark, chances are you are most likely to be bitten by another human being in your lifetime than by a shark. The practice of 'shark finning" for the above mentioned soup, sport and fear among other things, are  the main threats to these animals.
Shark Week "Sharknado" Cupcakes recipe, celebrate the best B syfy movie since The Attack of the Giant Caterpilar!! These fun and delicious cupcakes are filled with berry "Blood" and you won't be able to resist taking a "Bite Out of Them!

The Shark Conservation Act was signed into a Law in January 2011

White Sharks can smell a drop of blood from up to mile away, but most sharks can smell a drop of blood 3000 yards away.

Sharks don't sleep like we do. Most of them need to constant be in the move in order to get oxygen through their gills and bodies, so they "sleep swim" (not to be confused with sleep walk) part of their brains are less active and allows them to rest.
Shark Week "Sharknado" Cupcake Recipe, Shark Week will never be the same after you have one of these airy and delicious cupcakes! Filled with very berry "blood" they are irresistible

And on the subject of sleeping now that you are more likely to put that bikini and swim in the middle of the night right after watching a JAWS marathon, I want to thank you for your visit today! Enjoy Shark Week and remember than even Sharknado Cupcakes taste better with a Pinch of Love! (for sharks)
Shark Week "Sharknado" Cupcakes recipe...this cupcakes are the perfect Trick and Treat for Halloween...a gush of Very Berry Blood with each Sharky Bite! No artificial coloring on this blood, just pure fruit goodness!

Besitos,

Sharknado Cupckaes
Ingredients:
1 Bag of White Cupcake Mix
1 Cup Cream Soda
2 TBSP Raspberry Preserves
5 Straberries
5 Blakberries
Vanilla Icing
Cotton Candy
Shark Gummies
Directions:
Pre Heat oven at 350 degrees. Follow instructions on your cupcake bag. I replaced what the instructions ask for water and replaced it for the same amount of cream soda. Fill your cupcake liners and bake for about 15-20 minutes or follow bag instructions.
For the "Blood" Filling
In a saucepan on low heat add and mix 1/4 cup cream soda, preserves and fruit. Heat up until mix starts to thicken, about 10 minutes. Set aside and cool to room temperature. Once cooled, put the mix in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Inject the center of the cupcakes with this mix.
Once filled, top each cupcake with some vanilla icing. Shape a piece of your cotton candy into a funnel shape (resembling a tornado) and place it on top of the icing with a few shark gummies.
Take A Bite of your cupcakes and enjoy.

Preparation: 12 minutes         Cook Time 15-20 minutes      Serves 12

  1. Wonderful blog and great looking cupcakes. I like sharks also and so amazed by them. I have always swim in the ocean and have lived by it. Live right now in Florida about 15m from the beach. Have a great day and Thanks for sharing.

  3. Okay, let's see - my grandsons have been "into" monsters, dinosaurs, and now aliens. Sharks will eventually be coming down the pipeline! These cupcakes will be a big splash of fun at that time! I love their swirling beauty! And the boys will go nuts over the "blood!" (My granddaughters will recoil, but not those boys!)
    And congratulations on your thesis scores - I'm impressed!

  4. HAHAHAHA!!!! Sharknado! I watched a 30 second clip of that and could feel myself getting dumber. I can't believe these actors/directors take themselves seriously! But it was HUGE! And these cupcakes are hilarious and adorable! Bravo!

  13. My youngest son is an animal lover, no matter what kind. He always loved shark week when it came on. He is grown and gone now, when I saw it advertise I could not help but wonder if he watched it.
    Silly movie, yes, but a great inspiration for cupcakes. I love these. Very inventive.
