shark weekIt’s almost Shark Week and around here we are gearing up for a fun celebration. It’s always fun to learn about animals and with all the shark happenings lately what better way to celebrate then with a fun treat for your whole family.

Did you know that Discovery Channel™ Shark Week begins on August 10th at 9/8c? One of our favorite places to enjoy time as a family is at Cold Stone Creamery.  Whether it’s after a log day or just to stop in and grab something for family movie night we like Cold Stone!

This year Cold Stone and Discovery™ have come together to celebrate with some delicious treats your whole family will enjoy!  

They have gone shark crazy and are celebrating with these new items:

  • Great Blue Cupcakes (6-packs): A rich Chocolate Cup filled with a layer of Yellow Cake and Blue Sweet Cream Ice Cream topped with fluffy Blue Frosting and a Gummy Shark.
  • Shark Week Frenzy Ice Cream Creation: Blue Sweet Cream Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Pie Crust and Gummy Sharks.

To start the shark week celebration early we picked up a 6 pack of the Great Blue Cupcakes. They’re quite the spectacular treat with chocolate and cake and of course, ice cream!

I personally loved the chocolate cup on the bottom and whipped frosting on top. Our girls could easily agree, this treat is nothing to be scared about!

I make it fun I added some fluffy cotton candy and served them on small plates. It’s a delightful dessert that your whole family is going to enjoy!

    My grandkids are super excited to try some of these now that I have shared with them. Getting them to participate in the preparation is important so they have a stake in getting what they will eat.

    Too much fun, the grandkids will love to help out with these wonderful treats.

    What a tasty treat my kid would love. And I also see cotton candy in the pictures. I love cotton candy! Love the shark gummy tops.

    Those are really cute shark cupcakes. They looked like they don’t take too much decorating skills either which is right up my alley. Love Shark week!

    I’m on my way to an Alaskan cruise and had to dvr ALL of shark week. I can’t believe that we are missing it!!!! We are going to “celebrate” next week when we get home – I’m going to make some of these treats too!

  15. Toni on August 11, 2014 at 3:45 am

    What a cute idea. We love shark week!

  16. Janeane Davis on August 11, 2014 at 2:39 am

    It is a nice idea to make desserts in the theme of a television show or movie. It helps tie things together and creates nice memories.

  17. Pam on August 10, 2014 at 11:57 pm

    I will watch Shark Week if I can have some of those delicious treats! I have a friend whose son is obsessed with Shark’s Week.

  18. Lisa on August 10, 2014 at 8:33 pm

    What a fun idea! I have some cake mix, just need to catch me some sharks! 😀

  19. Felicia on August 10, 2014 at 7:43 pm

    Those are absolutely adorable! What a fun and simple idea to celebrate.

  20. Amanda Love on August 10, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    Oh those look amazing. I have been looking at Discovery all week and my kids just love the channel and learning about wildlife. Will have to check out Cold Stone, their ice cream is amazing.

  21. Virginia @thatbaldchick on August 10, 2014 at 12:23 pm

    Oh, how fun are those. We watch a lot of these nature shows on Amazon, since we don’t have cable, and the kids love them.

  22. Everyday Living with Chrys on August 10, 2014 at 9:15 am

    We don’t have cable so I miss out on Shark Week. Sometimes they stream it on the website. We watch a lot of these types of shows on Netflix when they have them and Amazon.

  23. Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com on August 10, 2014 at 8:36 am

    Adorable and delicious looking! I’ve never been into shark week, but this could be fun!

  24. Marina on August 10, 2014 at 6:55 am

    Yummy! Who doesn’t need cupcakes to celebrate?

  25. Tami on August 9, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    Cotton candy and cupcakes…perfect way to celebrate shark week! The little gummy sharks on the top are the cutest. 🙂
