Beauty and the Beast opens everywhere on March 17, 2017 and I couldn’t be more excited! The animated film was one of my favorites as a kid and I can’t wait to see how Disney makes it even more magical with this live-action version. Little girls everywhere will fall in love with Belle all over again – but this time with their mothers who likely already have a connection with Beauty and the Beast.
How to Make Beauty and the Beast Cupcakes –
- Lemon Cupcakes with yellow frosting
- Pretzel Sticks
- Wilton Candy Melts – Green
- Wax Paper
- Fruit Roll-Ups – Strawberry
- Cutting Board
- Pizza Cutter or Knife
- Bake and ice your cupcakes. I decided on lemon with yellow frosting so the cupcake would be the color of Belle’s dress.
- Heat the Wilton Candy Melts in a coffee mug (in 30 second increments) until smooth.
- Dip the pretzel sticks in the candy melt leaving about half an inch un-dipped at the bottom.
- Lay the dipped pretzels on wax paper until hardened.
- Unroll a fruit roll-up and cut into quarters.
- Fold each piece in half.
- With the fold up, wrap the fruit roll-up around the dipped pretzel. Continue until all the pieces have been wrapped.
NOTE: The fruit roll-up sticks to itself. Once you push it into place, it’s pretty stuck!
- Push the rose-topped pretzel into the center of the cupcake.
- Serve and enjoy!
