2. Separate cake mix into three bowls. Add a different food coloring to each bowl. Use purple food coloring in the smallest bowl.

3. Begin filling jars. For the Mike jar, fill jar halfway with green cake mix. For the Sulley jar, add a layer of blue cake mix, then add small drops of purple cake mix on the sides. Continue adding purple spots as you layer in blue cake mix. Do not fill each more than halfway.

4. Place jars in oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. If you leave the cakes in the oven for too long, they can turn a slight brownish color around the bottom. Be sure to keep a close eye on them.

5. Remove cakes from oven and let cool completely before frosting.

6. Place a dollop of white icing on top of the Mike jar. Place a blue chocolate candy on top.

7. Use neon blue food coloring to make blue icing. Transfer to pastry bag. Pipe “hairy” icing on top of Sulley cake jar.

8. Use purple food coloring to make purple icing. Transfer to pastry bag. Pipe “hairy” icing on top of Sulley cake jar.

9. Enjoy!


About Mike/ Jamie

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
