My little guy turned 4 recently, and he loves Monsters Inc and Monsters University. On his birthday, he helped me whip up a bunch of these Mike cookies. I would show you the Mike cake I made to go along with them, but I accidentally dropped it on the floor before the party. It was a tragedy. Thank goodness for local bakeries that already have cakes made and frosted.
