Make any celebration a little more fun with these Monsters Inc. cupcakes.
I’m excited to finally share these super yummy and easy to make cupcakes. When Statham asked for a Monsters University Party two weeks before his birthday I didn’t want to say no but I also knew I didn’t have much time to plan. I decided to keep things super simple and that went for the dessert too.
I opted to use a box cake cake make with a few modifications since it was so much easy to throw together and who doesn’t like Funfetti Cake right?! I also used store bought frosting and just added neon food coloring.
To make Mike Wazoski:
Put green frosting in a ziplock bag and cut a small whole in the corner. Swirl around starting on the outside and working your way in.
In a seperate ziplock bag add white frosting and make a small circle in the middle.
Using Wilton Black Sparkle Gel make a small dot in the middle of the white circle to complete his eye.
To make Sulley:
Using a #18 Star Tip make small clusters of purple dots on cupcakes (I did two dots per cluster and did three clusters)
In a separate bag use the same Star Tip and with blue frosting fill in the cupcake around the purple clusters.
- 1 box Funfetti Cake Mix
- 1 tub vanilla frosting
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup (2 sticks) melted butter cooled to room temperature (I melted in the microwave and let cool for 30 minutes)
- 1 cup milk
- green, purple and blue food coloring
- black gel color
- Preheat oven to 350F
- Mix together cake mix with melted butter, eggs, and milk.
