By now, I’m sure you know of my love for all things Disney! Disney’s Monster’s University came out on DVD + Blu-ray this past week, so we kicked back this weekend and had a fun movie night with the kids and watched it. I also made some fun treats for our Disney movie night… colorful mini cakes that match Mike and Sully’s colors that I baked inside baby food jars! I just love this technique, and will share with you exactly how you can make your own!
We love surprising our kids with Disney toys, so when we bought the special Monsters University 2-Disc Blu-ray + DVD + Infinity Figure Combo Pack at Walmart, we also picked up a few Monsters U toys for the kids to add to their collections. They already had the Sully and Mike toys, so we bought them Johnny and Squishy toys, too. The kids loved that the Squishy toy was actually squishy and squeezable, just like the character!
You might remember these mini cakes from when I shared with you my Rainbow Cake in a Jar baked in a baby food jar. My Monsters University cupcakes are very similar, just without all of the layers of color, and with bright colors of frosting!
Here’s how to make your own Monsters University Cupcakes/Cake in a Jar for your MU family movie night…
- Clean baby food jars with the paper removed
- Vanilla cake mix (I just used a box mix)
- Frosting (I whipped up a batch of 7 minutes frosting)
- Food Coloring (I used gel because the colors are much more vibrant)
