Easy Mickey Mouse Cupcake Idea

Poor Mickey Mouse. With two girls in our house, he’s taken a backseat to his girl, Minnie Mouse. I thought he deserved a cupcake idea, too. I love that this cupcake doesn’t require fondant. I tried making it once, and it was ok. I’m not a cupcake or cake expert and it was easy to tell. This cupcake is for the average baker – no experience necessary.

Make-Ahead and Storage:

This cupcake is best served within a day of making it. With candy, marshmallows, and cookies as decorations, it makes it a little harder to make several days in advance.

Storing Leftovers – you can store the cupcakes in an airtight container for up to three days, although with those big cookie ears  – you’ll need a tall container

Tips and Tricks for this Mickey Mouse Cupcake:

Getting the Cookie ears to stay on…

  • If the frosting is thick enough, you can add some to the end of the cookies and they should stay on
  • Frosting that is too thin, won’t hold the weight of the cookies – try adding some powdered sugar as a thickening agent
  • If you want to – you can trim the bottom of the cookies into a straight line by sawing them with a knife. I did not, but I didn’t have to transport mine very far. Place the cookies into the cupcake as you see above
  • A full-proof way is to use toothpicks to hold the cookies up. They’ll be more like a toothpick cupcake topper and they will definitely stay intact. Just be sure to tell your guests that there are toothpicks in the cookies so they can safely remove them before eating their cupcakes

Mickey’s Ears:

  • Toothpicks can also be inserted above the suspenders to hold the cookies in place (just be sure to let your guests know that toothpicks are hidden in the cupcake so they can remove them before eating the cupcake)
