Porcupine Mouth

With a sharp knife, slice a mini marshmallow in half and trim the top of each half off so it looks like a smile shape. Outline a tooth onto the marshmallow mouth with a black edible marker. Now color the rest of the mouth black.

Easy Porcupine Quills

Once you have Steve’s mouth and noses made, you’re ready to decorate your porcupine cupcakes! Cookies and cream Pocky candy are perfect for his quills!

Begin by inserting a few pocky candy pieces into the top of the cupcake. Break some in half to make various sizes of needles. Use 10-15 pocky pieces per cupcake. I used three 2.47 oz boxes to make six cupcakes.

Gently place a pink nose onto a cupcake, then add his marshmallow mouth and push into the icing well.

The Cutest How To Train Your Dragon Cake Recipes!

Looking for a fun How to Train Your Dragon Cake for a birthday party or other special celebration? Then you’re going to love how easy these dragon cakes are to make with this fluffy white cake and buttercream frosting recipe!

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World will be in theaters February 22 and I’m excited to share how I easily turned Toothless, the Night Fury dragon and his new friend, Light Fury, into adorable cakes. Make one cake or both, either way they’ll turn out to be the cutest cakes for any party!

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How To Train Your Dragon Cake Recipe

If you’ve never seen these films, be sure to get caught up the first two, because they are super cute! In How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World , Hiccup is the Viking chief and ruler of Berk. He created a gloriously chaotic dragon utopia along with his fearsome Night Fury dragon, Toothless.

When the sudden appearance of female Light Fury coincides with the darkest threat their village has ever faced, Hiccup and Toothless must leave the only home they’ve known and journey to a hidden world thought only to exist in myth.

How To Train Your Dragon Cake Tutorial

The secret to making a How to Train Your Dragon cake is to use my printables! I spent a long time designing printables that would work just right for a small cake. I wanted to turn both dragons into cakes, so I used 5″ round cake pans. Click here for a 5″ round cake pan.

For these printables to work perfectly, I suggest a 5″-6″ cake pan. You can make one cake, but they sure look cute when you have both the white and black dragons together!

How To Make Dragon Cake Printables

First, download and print these dragon cake printables in the link below (scroll down). Once you have printed and cut them out, start by hot gluing 1/2 inch cut paper straws onto the back of the eyes.

Easy How To Train Your Dragon Cake Tutorial! Fluffy white cake recipe for a Night Fury or Light Fury dragon birthday cake with printables.

I used toothpicks to attach the other dragon parts into my cake.

IMPORTANT: When the paper touches the buttercream frosting, it can make the paper greasy. When inserting your printables into the cake, try leaving a gap between the paper and the cake if possible. I suggest not adding the printables until right before you are ready to serve the cake.

Toothless is black, so if the frosting touches the black paper, you can’t see any residue. Isn’t he cute?

I love how pretty the Light Fury cake turned out!

Make sure your printables do not touch the white dragon cake, because you will have some of the frosting soak into the white paper. My fluffy white cake recipe is perfect for this dragon!

How to Train Your Dragon White Cake Recipe

Easy How To Train Your Dragon Cake tutorial. Fluffy white cake recipe for a Night Fury or Light Fury dragon cake. A perfect birthday party cake!

White Cake

  • 3  cups  cake flour
  • 2  cups  sugar
  • 4  teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 5  egg whites (room temperature)
  • 1  entire egg (room temperature)
  • 1  cup  whole milk
  • 2   teaspoons  pure almond extract
  • 3/4 cup  unsalted butter

White Buttercream Frosting

  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 teaspoons clear vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • Black food gel (if making Night Fury)

White Cake Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and line three 5” or 6” inch cake pans with parchment paper. (I used 5 inch for my dragon cakes)
  2. Whisk the eggs, milk, and almond extract together in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. In a mixer, gently combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together.
  4. Add butter and mix on low until you get a crumbly texture.
  5. Add the liquid mixture a small portion at a time and mix until light and fluffy.
  6. Pour the batter evenly into each cake pan.
  7. Bake 25-30 minutes. You don’t want to over bake! Check at 15-20 minutes to test if it’s done by placing a toothpick in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  8. Let the cake cool for 15 minutes before removing from the pans.

Frosting Directions

  1. In a mixer, cream the butter until it is smooth for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the confectioner’s sugar 1/2 a cup at a time then mix another minute.
  3. Add vanilla, a pinch of salt and milk until frosting has reached the preferred consistency.

  4. If making the Night Fury cake, mix in black food gel a few drops at a time until you get the desired color.

Assembling the Cake

  1. Make the top of the cakes even by using a serrated knife and cutting the cake top to level the surface.
  2. Place bottom cake layer on a cake turntable or cake board and spread frosting to the top. Repeat until entire cake is assembled.
  3. Complete frosting the cake by adding one thin layer all over and placing cake into the refrigerator for 10 minutes. Then add the final layer of frosting.
  4. Add the How to Train Your Dragon printables into the cake as shown for the dragon.

*This recipe is for 1 cake. Double the cake recipe to make two cakes. 

If you prefer to use a cake mix: Use 2 cake mix boxes for one three layer cake. 

IMPORTANT: When paper touches the buttercream frosting, it can make the paper greasy. When inserting your printables into the cake, try leaving a gap between the paper and the cake if possible. I suggest not adding the printables until right before you are ready to display or serve the cake.

Sponsored by DreamWorks Animation Television

With kids out of school for the holidays, this is the perfect time to get crafty at home! Today’s craft idea for these easy glow in the dark Galaxy Jars was inspired by Tales of Arcadis: 3Below, a cute new animated series streaming now on Netflix. It’s perfect for the whole family to watch together over the holiday break!

From the director Guillermo del Toro and the team behind DreamWorks Trollhunters, 3Below is a hilarious tale of alien royalty who must escape intergalactic bounty hunters by blending in on a primitive junk heap known as Earth.

Make one or two of these Galaxy Jars, grab some popcorn and snuggle up for some out of this world family adventures!

I thought glow in the dark Galaxy Jars would be fun to make and then light up while watching this new series! After we got to testing the galaxy jars, I came up with two different versions for you to choose from.

  • On the left is the No-Mess Galaxy Jar version with a printable galaxy backdrop from 3Below.
  • On the right is the slimy Ooey Gooey Galaxy Jar version that I know your kids will enjoy making. Just like Princess Aja’s alien dog, Luug, it’s a slobber mess, but of course super fun!

 

How to make Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars

With only a few ingredients, these glowing Galaxy Jars are a piece of cake to make! Here are the directions for both versions that I showed in the photo above.

What you’ll need to make the Ooey Gooey Galaxy Jars:

How to make Glow in the Dark Galaxy Jars. An easy DIY craft tutorial and party decor idea for kids by Living Locurto.

Step 1

Remove the caps to the glue and squeeze some of each color onto a plate (plastic disposable is best). Use a plastic spoon to pick up some blue glue and rub it around the inside of a glass jar. Coat the jar well, but not too thick.

Next, spread some purple glue around, then add some pink in several places.

 Galaxy Jars are an easy DIY craft tutorial and party decor idea for kids by Living Locurto.

Step 2

Place the jar into the microwave and set the timer to 40 seconds. The heat from the microwave will heat the glue making it crystalize on the glass. You might need to heat for 30 additional seconds if you don’t notice the glue drying.

CAUTION: The jar will be HOT. Use an oven mitt to remove the glass from the microwave.

Let the jar completely cool.

Add more glue if you want more color and repeat the heating process. Only do this a few times, overheating can cause the glue to burn and darken the glass.

Step 3

Once the jars have cooled, add a battery operated votive candle or glow stick and enjoy looking into the galaxy when it gets dark!

In Partnership with Paramount Pictures

Sherlock Gnomes Donuts and Juice

I’m a HUGE fan of garden gnomes and have just made the cutest Gnome Donuts to celebrate Sherlock Gnomes a fun, family friendly movie in theaters March 23. The trailer looks adorable and full of action, teamwork and adventure. What a perfect movie to see during spring break! I can’t wait to see this film since it inspired these fun, easy to make no-bake gnome donuts and juice! After sketching several ideas for gnome donuts, I feel like I know these movie characters inside and out. 

They’re on a mission to bring every gnome home. After a string of garden gnome disappearances in London, Gnomeo & Juliet look to legendary detective Sherlock Gnomes to solve the case of their missing friends and family.

Those tiny red gnomes in the movie poster are so cute! I couldn’t wait to turn them into donuts and especially excited to create an edible Juliet. She’s my favorite character for sure! I think they turned out ADORABLE. Wouldn’t these donuts be so cute for a woodland themed “Sherlock Gnomes” party?

I love creating fun food for parties! These small Sherlock Gnomes toys show you just how bite sized the donuts are, making them the perfect snack for kids. I added colorful drinks to the bottles to serve as their outfits, but you don’t have to serve these on small bottles. They would be just as fun all alone on a plate.

How to Make Sherlock Gnome Donuts

First, you’ll need to gather your ingredients. Scroll down and print the recipe for a list of all ingredients you will need. I used Glazed Hostess Donettes for the donuts and Reese’s Puffs cereal for the noses and ears.

Gnome Hats

Cut paper into about 3”-4” squares and shape into a funnel with the bottom a little bit larger than the width of the donut. Secure with tape and trim to fit.

 

Juliet

To make Juliet, add chocolate frosting to a decorating bag with a petal decorating tip attached. Pipe on Juliet’s hair. Stick two mini chocolate chips into the donuts sideways as eyes. The curvy tip should look like eye lashes. Add a tiny dot of white icing to a candy lip and place on the donut.

Gnomeo

Squeeze some white icing into a small bowl and add a few drops of yellow. Mix well. With a knife, add yellow icing onto a donut for his hair. Attach a piece of cereal with icing as his nose. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing.

Sherlock Gnomes

Cut the edges off of a piece of cereal to make his nose. Attach with icing. Insert two mini chocolate chips for eyes. Pipe on his beard with white icing. Add cereal ears and chocolate sideburns. For Sherlock’s hat, cut a curved portion out of the front of the hat and bend. Place on top of donuts.

My daughter is obsessed with emojis! She especially loves the poop emoji. Anything poop is funny to a 4th grader right? Ha! I was inspired by some stickers she came home with one day to create cute poop emoji icons. This then led to designing funny party invitations, printable tags and gift wrap to complete an Emoji Party!

Get creative with the Emoji Gift Wrap and tags! You could wrap presents with the gift wrap design, or use for paper placemats.

Another fun idea with the gift wrap is to cut it into 2″ strips for water bottle labels. A few simple touches like these emoji party labels with colorful paper straws can make a party table extra fabulous!
