Minnie Mouse Cupcakes
We are big Disney fans over here so for my daughter's 4th birthday she asked for Minnie Mouse cupcakes. I am really not the decorator when it comes to cakes and desserts but I always give it a fair try. I checked Pinterest for ideas and found some that I felt I could pull off. I wanted to do something cute that I felt comfortable taking on and that wouldn't take too much preparation. This is what I came up with:
I used a store bought yellow cake mix and pink frosting. Bake according to package directions, cool completely and spread frosting. I made 2 separate batches.
Batch number 1: I used regular size Oreo cookies for the face, strawberries cut up to make Minnie's bow and mini size Oreo's for the ears.
Batch number 2: I only made ears and simply broke in half a full size Oreo cookie and pressed them into the icing. Added some pearl sprinkles and voila, Minnie Mouse cupcake!
The guests at the party said they looked and tasted great....phew! That was a relief! I always worry when it comes to making and creating food for others. Not sure why I just do!
Like I said I am not the best at decorating cakes/cupcakes but this was honestly a super simple, fun way to make Minnie Mouse cupcakes! If I can do it anyone can, trust me!
I've always enjoyed reading about birthday party ideas whether it be food, decorations, etc. Have you pulled off a really fun birthday party? If so, I would love to hear about it. You can share in our comments below or on our facebook page!
