Ash Porcupine Cookies & a SING Viewing Party
This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. All views expressed are our own.
This past Sunday, our kids enjoyed a later afternoon SING viewing party. They have been dying to see this movie since we missed it in theaters.
Their anticipation grew tremendously when we received our very own copy of SING Special Edition on Blu-ray.
“Mom, can we watch it yet?”
“Mom, is it time to watch SING?”
I knew I needed to make this a super fun viewing party so I decided that some candy, cookies, and popcorn would be in order. My two girls seem to gravitate towards the character Ash the most so I decided to try my hand at making some Ash Porcupine cookies. I wanted to play up Ash’s light brown fur, and dark brown and tan quills with a vanilla and chocolate piped frosting duo.
Here is what you need to make these Ash Porcupine Cookies:
- Egg shaped butter or sugar cookies *bake your favorite recipe up. *This shape works best
- Small vanilla wafer cookies
- Candy eyes
- Chocolate covered raisins halved
- Vanilla frosting
- Chocolate frosting
- Small star piping tip
- Frosting bags (2)
Bake egg shaped butter or sugar cookies, allow them to fully cool
Fill your vanilla frosting bag with frosting
Adhere your vanilla wafer cookie to the bottom portion of your egg shaped cookie. Frosting works fine.
Add a tiny dab of frosting to the eyes, and set them in place on the vanilla wafer cookie.
Add a tiny dab of frosting to the halved chocolate raisin and adhere to the face wafer
Pipe the vanilla quills on but leave space in-between for the chocolate quills
Once you have finished the faces, and vanilla quills, switch to your chocolate bag and pipe the chocolate quills in.
Allow these cookies to set for at least 1-2 hours before eating.
For our “night at the movies” themed party I purchased these movie snack trays to put out candy, drinks, and popcorn in. The kids loved them so much and felt extra special using them. To dress up the cups and water bottles, I adhered “admit one” stickers to them.
No movie viewing party is complete without popcorn. I placed some movie style popcorn in bags which fit into the movie snack trays. We also had some traditional movie style candy, and of course the Ash cookies.
To make the space super festive, I added some music note cut outs to the wall, purchased a retro old film style table runner, and decorated with some old fashion admit one movie tickets.
Let’s just say my kids really enjoyed themselves and the movie! They really loved the 60-minutes of bonus content featured on the new Blu-ray and DVD which includes three 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.
Pick up a copy of SING for your next family movie night!
