Mickey Mouse Cupcakes Tutorial – Supplies Needed
- baked vanilla or chocolate cupcakes (or easy cake mix!)
- red cupcake liners
- large round piping tip
- open star piping tip
- Mouse House Sprinkle Mix or even Glam Rock sprinkles for Minnie Mouse cupcakes
- Black Candy Melts
BAKER’S TIP: To give our mouse ears a really nice matte look, we sprayed them with a can of black food coloring spray and let them dry before placing them on the buttercream. This secret tips really makes the ears pop. Those “ears” are perfection! You could use cut out fondant, regular and mini oreo cookies, and any other round chocolate cookie too.
How To Make Mickey Mouse Cupcakes
- Using a large round tip squeeze a little blob of frosting onto the center of the cupcakes. Then ice a border around it.
- Gently roll the edges in sprinkles.
- Use a large open star tip to frost a nice ruffle on top, use a piping bag to do so and then add a few more sprinkles.
- Last, add Mickey’s ears! The secret to these cupcakes is the black round candy melts we used as the cupcake toppers.
