Movie Night Pink Cotton Candy Floats

DSC_0891

Fun fact: I used to be pretty invested in the idea of having a career in music. In high school I did musical theatre competitively (Jesus Christ Superstar anyone?) and my first choice for university was a theatre program with a focus on music. Obviously that dream didn’t quite pan out, and I ended up opting for the much more practical option, but I always wondered what might have been if I’d pursued a career in performance.

Music is still a massive part of my life, though I only share bits and pieces of that here. If you run into me on the street, chances are I have headphones in my ears and I’m mouthing the words to a peppy pop song, and the first thing I do when I arrive home at night is pump up my playlist of the moment. It’s no wonder I totally fell for the amazing mashups and epic vocals in Pitch Perfect the first time I saw it, and even less surprising that I rushed out to theatres to see what musical magic they’d come up with for Pitch Perfect 2.

As expected, the music compilations blew me away, and you can bet I was humming “Flashlight” for weeks on end. I decided to celebrate the DVD release (which is today by the way!) I’d throw a little girl’s night with a very special, very pink treat. I call them “You’re a Star” Pink Cotton Candy Floats, and you’re definitely going to want to try one when you cozy up for Pitch Perfect 2 this week…

  • Love the look of that recipe! need it for girls night for sure 🙂

    My fav Pitch Perfect (2) song is Cups! I love the acapella aspect that comes into it.

  • Cups us the best song. The version from the original is number one but the refresh from movie two is still pretty good.

  • No Diggity is arguably the best song, but I do love the Don’t You Forget About Me touch. However, Anna Kendrick rapping is awesome. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  • This is the best! I love Pitch Perfect (especially Anna Kendrick!)…still haven’t made it out to see the second movie. Can’t wait to see this. Fave song is by far the finale, Price Tag/Don’t You/Give Me Everything.

  • I like the Flashlight song from the new movie.
