I found these seriously cool fish cupcakes, which sent me on a fishing trip for some more. It went well at first, with some really beautiful examples by talented bakers.

It then descended into a total debacle, but even the oh-so-homemade cakes have a kind of fishy charm about them--especially the sharks, which are quite cute. And gosh, if you were a child, imagine how excited you would be about them!
