Early Man opens in theaters Friday, February 16th, and a group of Los Angeles Mom Bloggers and their kids were invited to see it. Afterwards, we were all treated to lunch and a cupcake decorating tutorial at Duff’s Cakemix in West Hollywood.
Early Man is the latest film from the people behind Chicken Run and the Wallace & Gromit films. It tells the story of Dug and his tribe of Cavemen must learn to come together to face their greatest enemy.
Early Man is full of the charm and wit you’d expect from these filmmakers, and the animation is well-done. Dug may be the main character of the film, but his pet pig “Hognob” steals the show, and when we moved over to Duff’s Cakemix after the screening, the kids got to make cupcakes in his image.
Hognob Cupcake Tutorial at Duff’s Cakemix
Duff’s Cakemix is the brainchild of Duff Goldman, creator of Charm City Cakes, and Food Network judging star. It’s the ultimate DIY cake decorating workshop, perfect for birthday parties or just for fun. (West Hollywood was their first location, but they have opened in Pasadena and Tarzana as well.)
For the Hognob cupcakes, each kid was given 4 cupcakes and all the decorating supplies necessary, along with this step-by-step tutorial. Plus they were given examples made by the professionals.
My son started out heading for the perfection of the sample cupcake, but then he took a turn towards his own thing, and his Hognob looks a bit like he’s been rolling in some mud. But still delicious! In fact, of the 4 cupcakes he started with, we only ended up with three to take home. Hmmm.
