Oh man! I wish I had thought of using a FRUIT ROLL UP  and Cookies before my daughter’s sixth birthday party! Why mess around with fondant when this much easier way achieves absolutely adorable results! Here’s what I did to make this super EASY Minnie Mouse cupcake!:

You’ll Need:

  • Cupcakes frosted with pink frosting placed in pink Wilton cupcake wrappers – find these at Wal-Mart or Michael’s Crafts
  • Oreo Cookies – I used the store brand version
  • Red Fruit Roll Ups – with no writing or pictures printed on (hard to find these days)

Now, on to the cute cupcake!: (I’m so excited!) :

  • Easy Minnie Mouse Cupcake
  • You’ll want to unwrap your red roll up, and cut a strip about 6 inches in length – if you have to piece two pieces together because you couldn’t find just plain red (it happens) then use a dab of water to make them seal together
  • Easy Minnie Mouse Cupcake
  • Start by folding one end of the fruit roll up toward the center – about 3 inches in. Pinch or fold the end together before you stick it to the bottom making a little ribbon like fold
  • Repeat with the other side
  • Easy Minnie Mouse Cupcake
  • Take another strip about 2 inches long – this will be the middle of the bow – make it into a nice band by fold the sides toward the center – I have folded one side (I have the left side folded  over in this picture).
  • Wrap this around the middle of the bow
  • Easiest Minnie Mouse Cucake Idea, EVER! No fondant bows! These are made of fruit roll ups! Brilliant! Perfect for a birthday party!
  • You’re done!
  • Now set 2 cookies in the back of the cupcake for ears and place your bow in front of those! That’s it!
  • Enjoy!
