Cupcake week is nearly here (next week to be exact!) so to celebrate one of our favourite weeks of the year we’ve put together a collection of fun movie inspired cupcakes you can treat the kids with. Children often request birthday parties based on their favourite movie so what better way to make their special day complete than with some fun cupcakes that follow the theme!
These cupcakes each creatively combine themes, colour schemes and characters from kids’ movies into an incredible, edible treat. And they’re all super easy to make too!
If you’re looking for something to make for a little Harry Potter fanatic then these cupcakes are bound to hit the spot! These wonderful wizardry cupcakes are topped off with sugarcrafted accessories from the movie in a range of vibrant colours. Each cupcake topper has been carefully crafted to look just like the movie memorabilia and is fully edible. We love the sorting hat and Gryffindor scarf!
