Ant-Man Cupcakes

If you have seen my birthday party DIY posts, you know that I love themes. And if you have ever checked out my blog before, you should know that I am a huge comic book fan (Marvel to be specific). I am counting down the days until Ant-Man comes to theaters and we have officially hit just ONE WEEK! Woohoo! To celebrate, I have collaborated with On the Scene with Mrs. Kathy King (one of my all time favorite bloggers, seriously guys, check her out), to bring this fun Ant-Man inspired Cinnamon Raisin Cupcake & Cream Cheese Frosting recipe and printables (scroll down to see a bunch of printables from Kathy – not just cupcake wrappers and toppers – party hats, party invitations, and more)! Click here to download & print the cupcake recipe —-> Cinnamon Raisin Cupcakes Recipe

These cupcakes are sure to impress your friends and family whether you are celebrating the movie release, having a Marvel or Superhero themed birthday party, or just entertaining for the summer. The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man” when master thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Be sure to go see Marvel’s Ant-Man in just 7 days (July 17th, 2015)!
