toy story alien cupcakesI love making cupcakes, they’re is just something about them that always makes me happy. They don’t always come out 100% like I had hoped (like these guys), but they taste fantastic and always bring a smile to people’s faces. Last weekended we hosted a Disney Kids party thanks to Disney Parks, HP, Soft Soap, and Pillow Pets. The part was for the youngest friends and family members we have – Preschoolers! So when I set out to make cupcakes, it was my goal to make fun ones they would enjoy – plus anyone can do at home.

But they’re goofy and make you want to say “The Claaaaw” whenever you see them! I did give each one their own personality when I made their faces, but making them was actually really easy to do and you probably have most of what you need at home already!

What you need:

Directions: 

Step 1: Prepare your cupcakes according to recipe or package directions – It’s more than ok to use a boxed mix! Allow to cool completely.

Step 2: Prepare your buttercream frosting!

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz of room temperature butter
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 Tbsp Milk
  • 4 cups Powdered Sugar + Additional
  • Food Coloring

Instructions: 

  1. In your stand mixer add in your butter and vanilla. Slowly integrate your powdered sugar.
  2. Add milk and powdered sugar until you reach the consistency you want for your frosting.
  3. Add in your Green Food coloring and pipe the base on all of your cupcakes. You should have some frosting left in the bowl!
  4. Add in your black food coloring to remaining frosting and mix until you get the desired darkness. Add the mouths to your cupcakes.

Step 3: 

Add your eyes and ears to the cupcakes! Admittedly, the eyes are easy enough – just make sure you add 3 to each cupcake.

Disney Kids Preschool Party IdeasWe used the mini-green airheads to create the ears and the antennae for our aliens. Each mini-airhead made enough for 2 aliens. Simply tear off a piece and shape it by hand. The ears are a quick point and the antennae is sort of shaped like a golf tee.

Add on your parts and look at how cute they are!

Ok – so, they aren’t the prettiest things I’ve ever made, but guess what – the kids love them and that’s all that really matters. They’re a bit silly, but isn’t that part of the fun ;).
