Monsters University

Have you seen the trailer for the new Disney Pixar movie, Monsters University?! Well my sons have. And my youngest even changed his birthday party theme to a Monsters University movie viewing… After I had already bought favors for his super hero birthday party… Well, like any good mommy I took them back and we started over. Thank goodness we hadn’t gone too far down the party planning path yet. {grin}

So as we pull the party together I’ve started to craft and bake of course.

These fun little Monsters University Mike Wazowski cupcakes will likely make an appearance on the big day.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Monsters University Mike Wazowski cupcakes. (I also recommend the chocolate be Wilton Candy Melts available at your local craft store, plus you’ll need wax paper, glass bowl and resealable plastic bags.)

And here are the easy steps:

  1. Chocolate transfer legs and arms. Draw a quick outline, stick version is fine, of bent arms and legs. (Check Mike out here for inspiration.) I suggest bent so that the arms can be connected at the top and bottom. Melt green chocolates in a resealable bag in 8 second intervals, snip the end, and pipe onto wax paper. Never done chocolate transfer before? Check out my how to video for another project.
  2. Coat Mike’s body (aka plain donut hole) in chocolate. Melt green chocolates in glass bowl, spoon over donut holes, insert lollipop stick and allow to dry (standing is best if you have a cookie cooling tray you can use).
  3. Chocolate transfer eye. Melt white chocolate in a resealable bag in 8 second intervals. Make a round dot for the white of his eye. While still wet add a large blue confetti candy.
  4. Make Mike. Insert the lollipop with Mike’s body into an iced cupcake. Attach arms at mid and top of Mike with a dot of green chocolate. Attach legs at bottom of Mike with green chocolate. Bottom of legs will set in wet cupcake icing. Add Mike’s eye with another dot of green chocolate.
  5. Add horns and mouth. With white chocolate, pipe on squiggly mouth and horns.

If you weren’t excited about Mike and Sully heading off to Monsters University before, I hope you are now! {grin}

As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate!
