Monster's University Sullivan cake | Sally Cake | Monster's University Cake

Monsters University Inc

This cake is so special and close to my heart as I made this cake for my angel last year when she turned 4 yrs old. Time flies it was just when my little angel arrived and showered so much happiness in our life and here she is turned 4 already. My H don't want her to grow up so soon :P she just want to mute her growth lol which is impossible I know . She is more papa's girl and I love to see them together , I miss my pa too some time when I see them. My pa was the same but we loose people in life so soon and it becomes a pained memory which should not happen to any daughters as they are more affectionate with their father. So I made this cake on my daughters request, she is a great fan of Master's university . She have seen the movie more than 25 times and she loves Jame P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski a lot from the movie. she wanted me to carve any one of the character cake for her special day and How can I say no to my lil one. I just baked this cake when she was napping and after she woke up  this was her surprise for her special day.. She just love it a lot  and gave me lots of hugs and kisses . Now moving on to my first ever character cake.
