Beauty & the Beast Cupcakes are just precious. Who could resist the sweet candy rose?
Please tell me you’ve seen the new live-action Beauty and the Beast!
It’s probably one of the most magical movies I’ve ever seen, partly because Belle is my favorite Disney princess of all time (I’m a sucker for a girl who loves books, and cookbooks - duh) and partly because the costumes and setting are sheer perfection.
We took the kids on opening weekend because I’d never hear the end of it otherwise. And also because I kind of couldn’t wait. Who could?
The previews were only playing every five seconds for seventeen months. Hi Emma Watson, you’re kinda amazing.
I was slightly concerned that Lucy would get frightened during the more intense scenes, but of course I had grossly underestimated her. My precious four-year-old was mesmerized by the Beast, raising her fist and cheering during his fighting scenes.
At several points, I had to ask her to take it down couple of notches, lest she terrify the precious girls in front of us dressed in their very best Belle ballgowns. Bless it all, we are always those people, but I’m really not sorry. Life is hard and strong girls get ahead.
As you might expect, the music was probably my favorite thing about the entire movie. There were a few new songs that are not in the original animated version, but the classics we love were even better than ever.
The “Be Our Guest” scene was everything I could have hoped for and we all sang along, except for my husband who was asleep with his mouth hanging open.
I don’t know what it is about that man and movies, but he just can’t hang.
If you’ve considered seeing the movie but haven’t made it yet, GO! There are some films that really shine on the big screen, and this is one of those films.
The scenery is so rich and the costumes are so intricate and perfect – it really needs to be seen in all of its glory.
And don’t be surprised if your princess walks out proclaiming the Beast as her favorite character of all. That hairy guy just has something about him.
Of course, I had to make Beauty and the Beast cupcakes! I decided that the Enchanted Rose would be the best option for a cupcake topper – relatively easy to pull off, but instantly recognizable. With a simple vanilla cupcake base - make your favorite!
Lucy absolutely loved them and immediately knew what they were, which I always consider a success. And bonus – the toppers are completely edible (and delicious).
