Captain Marvel Cupcakes

Growing up in the 80s and 90s, my favorite superheroes were Wonder Woman and She-Ra! I really don’t remember being that into superheroes but I do remember I used to have a red cape that I would wear here and there.

With the exciting movie opening of Captain Marvel, we are so thrilled to share our Captain Marvel Cupcakes with you!

My son and I are huge Disney fans. He’s been watching Disney movies since he was a baby. We visited Disney World for the first time as a family when he was just 4 years old. It was one of our first big trips as a family, one I will never forget. With each trip, I learned what we needed to pack. After that first trip, we knew we had to stay at a place with a kitchenette and access to a washer and dryer. Since we usually stayed for a week or longer, it was helpful for us to have both amenities. We even took a few trips to Disney World in the summer!

We are a family of Disney Dreamers and believe in pixie dust. I adore witnessing my son discover the magic of Disney each time we visit the parks!
