@soon2beesmith671:  We are making angel cake cupcakes with lemon baked in and then a really simple raseberry topping 🙂 

Can you make orange frosting to go with the chocolate?

@soon2beesmith671:  Those all sound like good tropical flavors. I’ve had lemon and raspberry and lemon and blueberry together, they were both good. What about lemon cupcakes with lime frosting? You could do that and add a plain vanilla cupcake. You could have a grooms chocolate cake?

Do you get guylian chocolates in America? They come in pretty shells/sea related things and could work well on the top of some of your cupcakes:

To make chocolate tropical I would might pair coconut with it (We have Bounty Bars here – I think the equivalent in the US would be Mound Bars? They are tropical themed!) Or you could do banana flavoured cupcakes with chocolate buttercream icing?

And nothing says tropical to me like Pineapple etc. so I think a Pina Colada themed cupcake (or even a Hummingbird one!) is a great idea.

Another decoration idea is to get some lollies like the fish below – should be able to pick them up at any Candy store/cake decorating place.

How about coconut rum cupcakes? 🙂 I have a home-based bakery where I do predominately alcohol cupcakes, so maybe I’m biased… haha.

Chocolate mango could be delicious and tropical; same with banana. For lemon, maybe a strawberry daiquiri flavored frosting?

For decorations, get some sugar sand to make the tops of some cupcakes look like the beach.
