Monsters Inc Birthday Party Prep

When Michael said he wanted a "Mike Wazowski" Party, I went straight to Pinterest to find some ideas. I found these cupcakes and knew immediately that I wanted to make them.
I also found these "Sully" cupcakes and thought they would be cute. 

A couple of days before the party, I had to do a little prep for the cupcakes. 
I had to make the eyes

And the mouths 

Then the night before the party, I made the cupcakes, decorated and assembled them all. With help from my momma! 

I think they turned out Great! 

So, you want to know how to make them, here you go. 

For the Mike Wazowski cupcakes: 

The eyes are a white candy melt, with blue cookie icing, and a brown mini M&M. That's it. I got the candy melts from hobby lobby and the cookie icing in the baking aisle at the grocery store. Just a note, you don't need that much icing. You can see in the picture of the eye balls, that I started with too much icing, and cut back a lot as I went. 

For the mouths, I used a tootsie roll that I rolled out and cut with a cookie cutter into a mouth shape. For the the teeth, I used the same cookie icing. If I had to do it over again, I would wait till the morning of the party to put the mouth on. Because the tootsie roll got very soggy and started dripping by the next morning. 

The antlers were just slivered almonds, bought in the store that way. 

For the "Sully" cupcakes, we used a "grass" frosting tip. Very simple. 

I am very happy with how both of them turned out.
