This year, kids will be asking to throw a superhero party for their birthday! With the release of Avengers: Infinity War, there is so much excitement about superheroes. Even my four-year-old is asking about some of my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe characters. A favorite in our house is the Hulk. Bruce Banner “AKA The Hulk” has some pretty cool moves, makes us laugh and we love that he’s big and green. Now is the perfect time to watch the Marvel movies in order and snack on these delicious Hulk Cupcakes as Avengers dessert idea.
They are easy to make and the kids have fun helping out too. You can purchase the Marvel Comics Ice Cube Mold from Amazon and they come together easily. Plus, once you have the mold, you can make all sorts of fun things for your party: ice cubes, candies, crayons. I think every Marvel fan needs this mold in their kitchen – for some heroic baking. I even used the other molds (see below) for other Avenger cupcake ideas.
I know these Hulk cupcakes will be a smash at your next superhero party – they taste as good as they look!
