This Monsters Inc Birthday Cake was a fun cake to make for my monster baby’s 1st birthday. It was all done freehand with a coloring page that I kept next to the cake and used as a guide. I made the background as Boo’s door.

I used a Wilton #233 to do Sulley’s fur. I also piped a row of stars around the bottom border of the cake using the star tip.

My recipe for Buttercream Icing:

1/2 cup Crisco

1/2 cup margarine

1 tsp vanilla

4 cups sifted powdered sugar

1/4 cup 2% milk (approx 1/8 cup if placing into bags)

Double or triple the recipe for a cake this large.
