The Cutest Turtle Cupcakes I Ever Did See!

Turtle CupcakesI have recently discovered The Galapagos Islands. Now, I haven’t discovered them in the way that I just found out about them, mind you. I have, naturally, heard of them before, and in a very general way I thought they sounded nice. But this week a friend sent me a link to a site that hosts tours of the Islands as she is considering a vacation, and the more I read the more I wanted to go as well!

The beaches are beautiful, the weather is wonderfully warm, the landscape is breathtaking, and the water – oh, the water! But of all the things I’ve read, what interests me the most is the giant tortoises. They just look so cool and interesting, and I want to meet at least one of them before I leave this Earth! In the meantime, I’ll be making do with something sweet. Namely, turtle cupcakes!

I came across these captivatingly cute cupcakes on Pinterest, and traced that recipe on back to Here’s what you’ll need to decorate your cupcakes…

  • Miniature Chocolate Chips
