Life's a Beach, So Eat It!

Beach time is precious. There are only a few months out of the year when the weather is right for getting sand into everything you own. Most of the year you’re forced to watch Baywatch on Netflix, hoping and wishing. Even worse? Baywatch isn’t even on Netflix! Don’t let the bummers get you down. Enjoy the seashore vicariously by taking in all of this amazing beach-themed grub.

Octopus Hummus

Beachy Cupcakes

These cupcakes are so relaxing that you just might eat 10 of them and then fall into a deep slumber. In total fairness, however, eating 10 of just about any cupcake would do the same thing.

Sand Castle Cake   

What is there to do at the beach besides read trashy romance novels? Why, build sand castles, of course. The best part about this sand castle cake? You can eat it once you are done building. If you try that with a regular sand castle you are liable to get committed.
