We had a Mickey Mouse/Under the Sea birthday party for Maddi and Brayden this past weekend, and I made a few items special for the party.
Instead of paying $20+ for a cake made from Wal-Mart, I decided to make cupcakes for both kids. Ocean waves for Maddi and Mickey Mouse for Brayden, both seen from Pinterest.
The ocean waves were really easy.
All I did was use regular white cake mix, prepared exactly from the box.
After I spooned the mix into cupcake liners, I used a toothpick and blue food coloring to make the swirls.
I dipped the toothpick into the food coloring and swirled it around in the mix till I was happy with how it looked in the cupcake liner.
Then I baked it from the directions on the package for cupcakes.
Then frosted and added sprinkles (per Maddi's request).
