The  Halloween fun continues!

Today’s treats are inspired by Monsters University. Monsters Inc. has been one of my son’s (“Ahem”..husband’s) favorite movie for years. Needless to day, we were very excited that they made another Monsters movie and we were excited to see it.

The  Monsters University will becoming out on Blu-ray Combo Pack October 29th! Woot-woot!

We were very excited for the moving coming out on DVD since we didn’t get a chance take the little man to the movie theater. He is a little bit too active to got to a movie. If he can sit 30 minutes, that’s an accomplishment!

That’s why the DVD is perfect for him. We got an advance copy of the movie for inspiration and boy, were we inspired! We decided to make some cupcakes and HAVE FUN with it!

The cupcakes were very easy and we had SO much  fun while creating these little monsters. If you are planning a kid Halloween party or just a fun family evening, I suggest sitting around the table and have a CUPCAKE COMPETITION!

Who can make the BEST monster cupcake?!!

Like I said above, these cupcakes are super easy!

You can either use a box mix for a cupcake or you can make your own. If you want to make your own, can I suggest my white cake recipe?! It’s my favorite cake recipe!

For the frosting, I used a Buttercream frosting and different color coloring gel.

    I absolutely love your cupcakes. You did a wonderful job. I’m about to have a Monster’s university themed party and would love to know the gel colors and brand you used to make such beautiful buttercream. I’ve tried a few and the colors don’t seem to come out right. I would really appreciate it.

      Hi Macey!
      Of course! It was Wilton icing coloring and I used Leaf Green, Royal Blue, Rose, Violet and possible Lemon Yellow but I didn’t take picture of those.
      Best of luck with the party!
