Get ready to SING with DIY Microphone Cupcakes

Posted by  ·  March 28, 2017  ·  Last Updated: March 29, 2017

Get ready to SING! We are delighted to partner with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment to celebrate the the SING Special Edition Blu-ray and DVD release! Our family loves a movie that inspires you to reach for your dreams and this heartwarming film with great music and a fantastic cast does just that! So often we get stuck and don’t take chances. This movie is a great reminder to take a few chances and to put yourself out there. Great things can happen!

How to make microphone cupcakes

Mix up one boxed cake mix according to package directions.  Place ice cream cones into a muffin pan.  Fill each cone with the cake batter.  Leave at least an inch of space at the top.

Bake according to package directions for cupcakes.  Watch closely. We used the jumbo ice cream cones so they took a few minutes extra to bake.

Decorate the cupcakes with white frosting, licorice and sparkly silver coarse sugar.

First make a hole near the bottom of the cone with a sharp tool. An ice pick or meat fork works great.  This makes a place to slip in the “cord.”

Peel the licorice into individual cords and feed one piece into the hole.

Frost the cupcakes with the white frosting. Be generous making the tops look like the top of a microphone.

Pick up your copy of SING Special Edition is now available on Blu-ray & DVD. You get over 60-minutes of bonus content and  three all-new entertaining mini movies featuring the cast from SING as well as an exclusive Tori Kelly music video and a variety of musical extras. So fun!

You won’t be disappointed!  SING features more than 65 hit songs including ‘Faith,’ a brand new song by the legendary Stevie Wonder (featuring Ariana Grande), marking his first song for a major film release in 25 years. SING was a Golden Globe nominee for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. We loved SING stars Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita.  Scarlett Johansson was great as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior. So many of our faves in this movine including Taron Egerton, Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly.

SING is definitely the musical comedy event of the year!

    How many did these make? 24 or 12? Do you need to add more batter to fill the cones than you would a cupcake liner? Thank you!

      Nina, I don't remember now. I know it made 12 and I think a few more. It didn't take too much more for the cones. If you fill too high they overflow. I would say you could probably get 18. Sorry I should have counted.
