For every movie night, you first need a movie. So while at Walmart, I picked up a copy of Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. It was really easy to find, too, thanks to the in-aisle display near the electronics department.

I also picked up a couple 4.5” Tinker Bell dolls, both Tink and Rosetta, so Abby could hold a few of the characters from the movie right in her hands! That was surprise number one.

The Fairy Dust Sugar is very easy to make. Add food coloring to a quarter cup of sugar, I used organic cane sugar. Stir together until it’s well mixed. Then bake for about 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

These Fairy Dust Sugar-Sprinkled Cupcakes were extra easy, because I used a white box cake mix and store-bought white frosting. The puff of white frosting helps the vibrant colors of the Fairy Dust Sugar really stand out! This would also be such a great girl’s birthday party idea!

Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast was such a good movie. The animation was so vivid and Fawn was hilarious and even Gruff, who started out a bit scary, was actually really adorable. It kept the kids on the edge of their seat! I say kids, because the cupcakes weren’t the only fun part for the boys. Buzz watched the whole thing with us, too.
