Minnie Mouse Cupcakes


These were probably the easiest cupcakes I’ve ever made for a party. My kids were able to help out and they still looked great. (You know how sometimes the kids want to help, but…well, really, you’d rather they didn’t…?) The kids made the fondant bows (after I showed them how) and they put the cookies together. They also helped put the bows on the Minnie heads after I placed them on the frosted cupcakes.

These cupcakes were made with my doctored-up cake mix recipe. I used a strawberry flavored mix & it was delicious. Bake at 325 for 16-18 minutes.

I iced them with my buttercream icing (using all butter, no crisco) tinted with Wilton food colorgel in Rose.

As you might see from the picture, the Minnie is made of Oreos. I took a Double Stuf Oreo (which is better than regular because there is more space between the layers… and one Mini-Oreo, pulled apart. Stick the ears (mini-cookies) in-between the large cookie layers (gently) until they are firmly in there. Top it off with a fondant bow. (We made the bows the night before to let them dry & firm up a bit.)

 

These were a bit hit!
