In the summertime, I love to take the kids to drive-in movies. It’s a fun way to experience a movie, and having so many kids… really saves us money. Drive-Ins are a little piece of the good ole’ days. The big screen in the sky is making a comeback, and we are on board. Last night, we were lucky enough to see Monsters University. In honor of our fun summertime movie adventure, I made these really simple Monsters University cupcakes.

Pressed for time, my thought was…”keep it simple!” So, when I saw the Monsters University Logo was a letter M with an eyeball, I was all over it. I think these would be so fun at a Monsters University birthday party. They only require a few items. I’ll walk you through what I did to make these cute cupcakes

You’ll Need:

  • Cupcakes frosted with monster green frosting – If you look in the baking aisle, you’ll find neon gel food coloring! The green neon mixed with vanilla makes a great Monster Green! Or, just use a tiny bit of primary green with white to get a Monster Green
  • A letter M mold – I used a Jello Jiggler “M”. If you can’t find that, try the play-dough section for letter molds, or cookie cutters
  • Blue Sugar Crystals
  • Mini Marshmallows – ones that are a little stale work perfectly! Leave some out in the open air (overnight) to harden up a little bit. Trust me! It’s far less sticky!
  • Mini blue M&Ms
  • Scissors
  • Wax Paper
  • Rolling Pin


Now, on to the Monster Fun!:
