Looking for adorable cupcakes for a Lion King birthday party? Check out our easy to make Lion King Simba Cupcakes here!

How many of you loved watching the Lion King as a kid? I will happily admit it was one of my favorite movies as a kid. Maybe not as much as my husband though. He and his little brother watched it constantly, back to back, and he happily tells stories of them sitting in the basement. They had the entire movie memorized at one point, and he can sometimes be quite entertaining with it now. As adults, we still have a love for this movie and I love when I get the opportunity to watch it (especially with children). Like many kids, my favorite characters were Simba, Timon, and Pumba (who doesn’t like Pumba?).

When one of my friends Krista, who is a very talented baker, said she made Simba cupcakes, I knew I had to see them for myself. As you can see from the pictures, these cupcakes are absolutely adorable and look a lot like a certain little lion cub. Best of all, she makes the entire process look extremely easy, allowing anyone to make these adorable cupcakes for kids or just as a fun way to remember one of your favorite childhood movies. To make these cupcakes, just check out the recipe below. If you make them, make sure to tell us what you think of the recipe and if you can think of any improvements!

Note: Special thanks to my friends Krista from Adventures of Country Divas for helping me with this recipe and pictures!

    These are adorable! I hate how everything always looks easier to make than it really is. lol Of course, that is the fun with making dessert and baking treats….it’s fun to practice. It only gets stressful when you find out you have to make 1-2 dozen cupcakes or cookies for your child’s class…the night before they need them. lol

Thanks for the Recipe & Have a Blessed Day! Thanks, Jana

    I just adore these cupcakes. My granddaughter would love them. I am wondering if you could cut down the 1 2\3 cup sugar in the cake recipe. To me that seems to be a great deal of sugar for a cake recipe. Then add the sugar in the frosting it just seems these might be too rich to eat!
