1 cupcake (such as pumpkin, gingerbread or spice cake)
White icing (store bought is fine - you're busy today.)
Blue food colouring
1 pretzel stick
1 1/2x 1 1/2 inch piece of paper
Slice the domed top off a completely cool cupcake and cut this top piece in half along the diameter. Spread a little white icing on the cut sides and glue the two halves together.
With a paring knife, trim a rectangle out of the flat edge to make the ship’s central deck.
Use a drop or two of blue food coloring to dye a few tablespoons of icing pale blue. Spread on the flat surface of the cupcake.
Prop the ship atop the cupcake. Write the name of the guest on the paper sail and cut a tiny slit (or use a hole punch to cut a circle) above and below the name. Slide the sail onto a pretzel stick and prop this pretzel mast upright in the centre.
