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.
- Fill cupcake tins 2/3 way full.
- Bake for 20-23 mins.
- Take 1/2 the tub of frosting and mix in 20 drops of neon green food coloring to make Mike Wazowski's green.
- Take 1/4 cup of frosting and add 10 drops of neon purple food coloring to Make Sulley's purple.
- Take remaining frosing and add 15 drops of neon blue food coloring to make Sulley's blue.
- See above recipe for how to frost cupcakes.
