This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment
Do I have some serious singers in my house!! So of course we are gaga over the animated movie SING! We are having a family night party to watch the movie, along with munching some darling microphone cookies, helping us “SING” along!
We’re partnered with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment for a fun movie night, as SING Special Edition is now available on Blu-ray & DVD. My girls already know most of the songs, we’ve been singing them ever since the movie came out, so this is a definite “SING”-along as we watch at home!
We’ve been so inspired by the all characters. Each one has something unique about themselves and overcomes something to participate in the showcase. My personal favorite is Rosita, managing her household and family as well as pursuing her dreams! Both my girls love Meena for being so brave and overcoming her fears, and Ash for her sense of style and poetic songwriting.
We’re in love with these microphone cookies, aren’t they so cute?! I commissioned my sweet niece, Kendall, to bake and decorate them for us. She is just starting her cookie decorating business, so if you’re in the Seattle area let me know if you need some cookies!
“SING” Along with Microphone Cookies
To make and bake your own microphone cookies, here’s what you’ll need!
- sugar cookie recipe or shortbread cookie recipe
- microphone cookie cutter
- silver sprinkles or silver sugar pearls would be fun too
- frosting – you can use any coloring you’d like to make your microphones, we chose silver to match the ones from the movie!
Bake your cookies according to the recipe. Once cooled, frost the cookies and add your sprinkles to the top circle, creating a sparkling sugar cookie microphone!
Now it’s time to sing! These cookies work great as actual microphones, Anna was singing her little heart out to “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing” right along with the elephant Meena!
Pick up a copy of the SING Special Edition Blu-ray in stores for your next family movie night. The special edition includes over 60-minutes of bonus content and incorporates 3 all-new entertaining mini movies featuring the cast from SING as well as an exclusive Tori Kelly music video and a variety of musical extras!
From Illumination, the studio that brought you The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, comes an animated comedy about finding the music that lives inside all of us. SING stars Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, an eternally optimistic koala who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theater; Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, an overworked and unappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Scarlett Johansson as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior; Taron Egerton as Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; as well as Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly. SING is the musical comedy event of the year!
