Celebrate the release of Christopher Robin by creating these easy Winnie The Pooh cupcakes. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
I grew up watching Winnie the Pooh and Piglet was always my favorite character. Next to Piglet, Pooh was a close second. I cannot wait to see the new Christopher Robin movie that will be released on August 3, 2018. I’ll be a mother of a 13-year-old by that point so the movie will be a good way for me to release tears.
Making these Winnie the Pooh cupcakes was incredibly easy. I like to use some brown cupcake liners. These ones I’ve linked to above are especially great because they don’t leave any grease marks. You can also use the red ones I made them in. Make sure they are lined by a foil liner so that the grease doesn’t seep out.Just use your favorite chocolate cupcakes. You can use store-bought or make some using your favorite mix. Just double the ingredients for the fondant toppers below to make enough for one chocolate cake mix box.
Frost your cupcakes with the buttercream. You can also buy store-bought frosting and perhaps even color it yellow to match the yellow fondant.
Roll out your yellow fondant and cut them into 2″ circles. Roll small balls of the yellow fondant for his ears and a larger ball for his nose. To get your ears to stick to the face, brush a light amount of water on the back and then adhere it to the face. Use your #7 Wilton tip and create the face. Use the #6 Wilton tip to create Winnie the Pooh’s eyebrows. Place the face on top of the buttercream frosting and serve.

cornstarch for dusting
2" round cookie cutter
bowl of water and paintbrush
black pre-made frosting
Allow your cupcakes to cool completely before decorating. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and dust your working surface with a thin layer of cornstarch. Roll your fondant to be about ¼ of an inch thick and use your cookie cutter to cut out 12 fondant circles.
Next, roll spheres about one inch in diameter, you’ll need twelve of these. Flatten them out and shape them into ovals.
Roll 24 smaller spheres and shape them to look like Pooh’s ears (flat and pointed at one end).
Using a stand mixer, beat butter, icing sugar, milk and vanilla extract until smooth. Use an offset spatula to frost each of your cupcakes.
Assemble your fondant pieces: place your flat oval in the center of your large fondant circle. You can brush water on back of the oval so that it sticks onto the circle.
Using Wilton tip #7, draw Pooh’s nose and eyes with black frosting. Switch to Wilton tip #6 and draw on his eyebrows.
Place Pooh’s face on each cupcake and apply his ears (brush the back of each ear with water to secure it on his face).
I made this adorable Cars Lightning McQueen for Malakai. He’s been obsessed since Cars 3 was released. This Cars Pillow is even easy and fun to put together for your
Disney Pixar Cars obsessed boy or girl. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
If you can see in the picture above, I have no black Iron-On Vinyl on the DIY Cars Pillow. I used the black fabric as the black color and I saved some money because I didn’t need to buy that color. Begin by cutting out your fabric with the Cricut Maker. You’ll cut one black circle and 2 black rectangles that you’ll sew together to make one long strip.
After you’ve cut your black circle, place the Iron-On Vinyl. Us your EasyPress or Iron and start with the red. Next, line up your yellow bolts and then lay the white on the top. Use a towel or a protective mat to protect your red and yellow HTV as you press the others.
Cut the other circle with your Cars patterned fabric. You don’t have to use Cars fabric but it’s just an added bonus. Pin your black strip to one of the circles and then sew the ends of the strip together when they meet. Now sew one of the circles to the side strip. You will now sew the second circle to the side strip. Leave an opening about 4 inches wide and then stuff with filler. Hand stitch the pillow closed. So easy and it’s such a fun Disney Cars craft.
I have waited 14 long years for the release of Disney-Pixar’s Incredibles II movie. I know every child is going to want to have an Incredibles Party this year so I created these Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Make your Incredibles Party pop with these easy Incredibles Rice Krispie Treats. They pair perfectly with my Incredibles Oreos that I made a few weeks ago and just in time for the new Incredibles II movie release.
Gather all your ingredients and set them aside. Melt together the butter and marshmallows and then remove from the heat. You can use your microwave as well but I like to make them on the stovetop. After you’ve melted the butter and marshmallows, add the cereal and the red food coloring. Give it a good mix and place them into an 8×8″ square pan. You can line it with parchment or use some non-stick vegetable oil spray. Making the I’s is something that I did with the Incredibles Oreo recipe. Just use some fondant and set them aside. You’ll want to spread the black icing just like the Incredibles Oreos and you’re more than welcome to just use yellow icing if you’re confident in your icing skills. That’s not something I am great at so I use the fondant.
Create this perfect treat for any Incredibles Birthday Party or just celebrate the release of Disney Pixar's Incredibles II. I've waited 14 long years for this.

Line a square pan (8x8) with wax paper and set aside. In a medium-sized pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
Add red food coloring and mix until completely colored. Add rice cereal into the mix and fold until cereal and marshmallow mixture are thoroughly combined.
Evenly press the cereal treat mixture into your pan and allow to set.
In the meantime, make fondant shapes. Roll out your yellow fondant so that it’s about ¼ an inch thick and cut out rectangular shapes, about an inch long and 1/3 of an inch wide. Cut one end of each rectangle at an angle.
Using the end tip of a frosting tip, cut out mini circles.
Cut each cereal treat into rectangles. Frost each one with a solid circle (on a slight angle) with your black buttercream. Decorate with your fondant pieces.

Incredibles II hits theaters June 15th and I’m really excited for Malakai to see it. I’ve always loved how the original Incredibles ended because it set up another story. I just didn’t think I’d have to wait this long to see the sequel. This chocolate covered Oreos recipe is perfect for your next Disney Incredibles party.
Begin by melting your chocolate melts in 30-second intervals. I like to use this method when I temper chocolate. You’re going to begin by placing a fork into the middle of the Oreo. Dip it into your chocolate melts and then lay it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Once your chocolate has melted onto your Oreos, use the premade black icing and create an oval for the background. Roll out your yellow fondant and use cornstarch to prevent it from sticking to your countertop. You’re going to cut them into rectangles and then angle the top to have it look like the Incredibles i. Next, lay them on top of the black oval. Use a small amount on to the back of the yellow M&M and place it on to your Oreo above the i. That’s it! It’s so easy to make this Incredibles Party Oreos.

2cupsRed Candy Melts
2-4 oz yellow fondant
cornstarch for dusting
black decorating icing (store-bought)
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave candy melts and coconut oil in 30-second intervals until completely melted.
With the help of a fork, dip each Oreo cookie into melted candy and coat entirely. Place carefully on a lined baking sheet and allow to set.
As the candy sets onto the Oreo, prepare yellow fondant shapes. Line a small square pan with wax paper. Lightly cover your work surface with cornstarch and roll out your fondant until they are about ¼ of an inch thick.
Using kitchen scissors, cut out small rectangles, about 1.5 inches long. Then snip off the top at a diagonal.
With your black icing, draw out a solid black oval, on a bit of an angle (you’ll want it to look as much as The Incredibles logo as possible). Stick on your yellow candy (this will act as the “I’s” dot and then your fondant shapes.
Make these easy Thor Cupcakes all from an easy cake mix. Celebrate the AVENGERS: Infinity War movie release with these super cute cupcakes. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
Who has seen the new AVENGERS: Infinity War movie? Better question, who hasn’t? Thor was a huge part of the movie and so I decided to make these Thor cupcakes to go along with my Hulk Rice Krispie Treats or these easy Avengers Cupcake Toppers I made with my Cricut. These Thor cupcakes are incredibly easy to make. Just use store-bought Red Velvet cake mix and follow the directions on the box to make them. One box should yield 24 cupcakes. Allow them to cool completely before adding any frosting or decorations.
Mix your butter, powdered sugar, milk and cocoa powder together using an electric mixer or hand mixer. Beat until it is smooth and then add in your red gel food coloring. Having gel food coloring is important because it is intense in the color and the taste is almost non-existent. When you have red food coloring, sometimes it tastes metallic but I like the gel food coloring because you can’t taste it and it takes less of the coloring to get the color you want. Use a piping bag and a star tip to get the grooves when piping. I like to place my piping bag into a cup before I load up the frosting. It helps make it more stable and I’m able to keep the top of my bag clean. Next, you’ll make the top of Thor’s hammer for the cupcake topper. Use some fondant, mix in 2 drops of black gel food coloring and soften it by playing with it in your hands. The heat from your hands will make the fondant moldable. You may want to wear gloves so the gel color doesn’t stain your hands. Mold them into rectangles and lay them to the side. Mix the silver
lustre dust with some water or vodka and paint Thor’s hammer to get them shiny. Next, break the pretzel sticks into the desired size of the base of the hammer and place them inside the middle of the fondant hammer. Place it on top of your cupcake and now you’ve made the perfect Thor cupcakes.
Create these amazing Thor cupcakes for your next Avengers party!
1boxRed Velvet Cake Mix + Ingredients to make them
2sticksunsalted butter, softened
7-8dropsred gel food coloring
24mini pretzel sticks
2dropsblack gel food coloring
silver food luster dust
Prepare your red velvet mix according to the box’s directions (they usually yield 24 cupcakes). Allow to cool on rack before decorating.
Using a stand mixer, start beating butter and slowly add confectioners’ sugar. Add milk and mix on high until your buttercream has formed. In terms of consistency, you’ll want it to form stiff peaks.
Add cocoa and red food coloring to the buttercream and continue mixing on high until it is completely colored. Using a piping bag, frost each cupcake.
Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Roll your fondant into ½ inch spheres (you’ll want to make 24 of them) and then shape into rectangles. Place each one on lined baking sheet. (You will want to dust your fingers with cornstarch once in a while to prevent them from sticking on your hands)
Brush each fondant piece with silver luster. Insert a pretzel stick at the bottom of each one (you may have to break off a piece of the pretzel stick if they are too long). Place carefully on each cupcake.

3-4small drops Kelly green gel food coloring
1.5cupspurple candy melts
½cupdark brown candy melts
½cupdark brown sprinkles
Candy decorating eyes
Black decorating frosting (ready-made
Coat a 9x9 square pan with 2 tbsp of butter and set aside.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt 3 tbsp butter and add all of your marshmallows. Stir until marshmallow is completed melted.
Color marshmallow mix with green food coloring and add rice cereal. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Evenly pat your cereal treats to the base of your coated pan. You can use a piece of wax paper to smooth it out (and so that your hands don’t get too sticky).
Allow for it to set (about one hour) and cut into rectangles. Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
Microwave your purple candy melts and 2 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the bottom of each of your cereal treats (about ¼ of the way up) and set on the lined baking sheet.
Microwave your black candy melts and 1 tsp of coconut oil in 30-second intervals until melted. Dip the top of each of your cereal treats and add sprinkles. This will act as the Hulk’s disheveled hair.
Using your black buttercream, stick on the candy eyes on the green portion of the cereal treats. Draw black buttercream lines above the candy eyes – these will act as the Hulk’s angry eyebrow
How to make your Avenger Treats
Follow the recipe and instruction below from the recipe card. It’s super easy. Just make a batch of Rice Krispie treats and color them green. I love this tried and true Rice Krispie Treat recipe I make all the time. Place them in a jelly roll pan and allow them to set before cutting them into rectangles. If you’re using a 9×9” casserole pan, you should get about 6 thick Rice Krispie Treats but I do like to double my recipe so that it covers my jelly roll pan. Melt your coating chocolate with the coconut oil. The coconut oil will make the coating chocolate a great shine. If you don’t have it, don’t worry about it. Dip one end into the purple set it down on a parchment lined baking sheet and allow it to harden. Dip the other end into the brown candy melts and then dip straight into the brown Jimmie sprinkles.
How to make Hulk’s eyes
Use your black decorating gel and create the eyebrows by drawing straight lines pointing inward to each other. Use the same gel and add them to the candy eyes and adhere them on the Hulk Rice Krispie Treats.
These are the perfect treat to have for an Avenger party or even your biggest Hulk fan. I can’t wait for Avengers: Infinity War to be released into theaters.
Cars 3 was released today on DVD/Blue-ray and so it couldn’t be more fitting that
I share with you this Cars 3 candy popcorn recipe. This post contains affiliate links.
No one is more excited for Cars 3 than Mr Malakai. He loved the preview but he was just too small to enjoy it in theatres. He now lives to watch movies. He’s always asking for more and I’m happy to oblige when I have other things to do in the house. Just add your favorite candy and salty chips to any microwave popcorn and it’s the perfect movie snack. For this recipe, I added some mini Kit Kat, Sour Patch Kids, Peanut Butter M&M’s and Red Hots. Just find any combination you like to make this yummy candy popcorn recipe your own. We had the opportunity to head to the Cars 3 Road to the Races event and we had a lot of fun as a family. The preview of the movie was the derby scene and it was so fun to see the expressions on all the cars’ faces.
Create this fun Disney recipe using popcorn and some sweet and salty snacks inside. Make it match any movie you're watching.
