How to Make Mickey Mouse Cupcakes (Two Ways)

Every Mickey birthday party has to have a Mickey cake or cupcakes. I couldn’t just have a huge Mickey balloon pinata without any treats or Mickey Juice Boxes. I opted for cupcakes because I am definitely not a cake artist and let’s face it cupcakes are way easier to make.

To make these Mickey Mouse cupcakes I used one box of Pillsbury Funfetti Cake Mix How to Make Mickey Mouse Cupcakes (Two Ways) and icing. I noticed while baking these cupcakes that not all of them could have a nice rounded top because there was not enough batter. Instead of going out and buying another box of cake mix (I’m lazy) I decided to make two different types of Mickey cupcakes. One that used a rounded top and one that used a flat top.

For the flat topped cupcakes, they were baked per the box instructions and then iced. One whole Oreo cookie was placed on top of the icing and two Chocolate Melting Wafers How to Make Mickey Mouse Cupcakes (Two Ways) were stuck in the icing for Mickey’s ears. Thank you Lesser Homes and Gardens for the idea!

Inspiration for the rounded topped cupcakes came from Erica’s Sweet Tooth. The rounded topped cupcakes were also iced but then were dipped into a fine powder of crushed Oreos. To crush the Oreos I removed all of their creme and double ziploc bagged the cookies. They were rolled over many times with a rolling pin until there was no lumps or anything. To not waste anything I added the creme from the Oreos to the cake mix batter. Tasted great! Again chocolate melting wafers were added for Mickey’s ears and I hole punched white paper to make Mickey’s buttons. For all of these cupcakes I suggest that you buy Red Foil Baking Cups How to Make Mickey Mouse Cupcakes (Two Ways) otherwise Mickey’s “pants” won’t stay bright red. Made that mistake already.
