Who is ready for Finding Dory today? I saw something this week that said something about how people should keep the kids out of the theater and let us parents see it first! I had a good laugh over that because it’s true, I’m much more interested in this release than my 5 and 2 year old. I know they’ll love it, but it’s a little extra special to those of us that remember when Finding Nemo was released.
In honor of the Disney PIXAR’s Finding Dory release, we put together these super simple, yet super cute, Ocean Cupcakes in a Jar.
I bought the blue cupcake mix and blue icing to make my life easier. I made up the cupcakes and then made our super cute ocean friends while they were baking.
To make the ocean candies, I used this silicone mold and candy melts in various colors. To make one that was a little like our friend Dory, I used a toothpick and put yellow candy down on the lines and then filled the rest with blue. While it’s not perfect, of course, I think they turned out pretty cute. The candies take just a few minutes to harden and then they’re ready to be added to our jars.
