How To Make Inside Out Cupcakes Recipe

The movie Inside Out hit the theaters last weekend. We finally had a chance to go and see it the other night. I’m not going to give you any spoilers, but was a movie full of emotions (ha!).  The boys enjoyed the movie and even the twins (who have autism) found ways to connect with some of the emotions. I really wish I could figure out their emotions like in the movie. I wish I could hear the little voices in their heads that tells me what and how they are feeling.

Anyways, if you and the kids are into Inside Out or plan to do a birthday party around this theme, then you will love these cupcakes!
