Mummy Cupcakes Inspired By Murray The Mummy From Hotel Transylvania

This post is sponsored by Fandango, however all opinions are entirely my own.

One of the first movies that I took Gabe to see was Hotel Transylvania. He was a few months shy of three years old when it came out, and I was shocked he sat through the movie. It was a fun Halloween themed movie, without being too scary for a child. We purchased it when it was released, and we’ve watched it dozens of times since. I was so excited hear about Hotel Transylvania 2, and Gabe and I were looking forward to a sequel. Hotel Transylvania 2 opens in theaters on September 25. Who’s going to see it? (I’m raising my own hand). I’ll be using my Fandango app to reserve our tickets. I thought I would show my creative Murray the Mummy cupcakes inspired by Hotel Transylvania 2, and share how you can win tickets of your own to see it (at the bottom of the post).

Do you know who Murray the Mummy is? He’s a lovable, and slightly smelly mummy from Hotel Transylvania. He’s also a BFF of Dracula.

Do you think the cupcakes look like Murray? They’re certainly inspired by him, and his toothy grin.

These are so simple to make, and even little hands can help.
