I love adding a hidden surprise to my cupcakes and wanted to keep the slime theme going so opted for a blueberry compote; this balances the sweetness out with the icing and the crunch of the sugary eyes.Slime Monster Cupcakes

My mum said they reminded her of the monsters in the film Monsters Inc, which wasn’t my intention, but now looking at them the colours are the same as Sully! You can make your monster any colour you choose. I use these food colourings, and they were great. I hope you have as much fun as I did at making them!
