Minnie Mouse Cucake

Who here loves Minnie Mouse? If you’re a fan of those cute Mickey Mouse ears and that adorable bow, you’re going to be over the moon excited to make these delicious and simple Minnie Mouse Cupcakes. All you need to do is channel your inner Disney fan to get started!

The best part about making these simple Disney cupcakes is that they’re really fun to make. There’s just something so exciting about whipping these up that is certain to put a smile on your face. Make this a family-friendly baking event and let everyone join in on the fun. 

Because we all know that those who help in baking and making the food are also some of the first ones that get to taste-test them as well! 

How do you know when your cupcakes are done baking in the oven? 

The easiest way is to give them the toothpick test! After the timer goes off indicating that they’re done, take a clean toothpick and insert it into the middle of a cupcake. If it comes out clean without any type of batter on it, they’re done and ready to be pulled. However, if there is batter, they’re going to need a little more time. 

What flavors of frosting would go well with these Minnie Mouse Cupcakes?

While this recipe calls for vanilla, change up the flavor if you want! You can try a cream cheese frosting so that you’re keeping the color white but ultimately, it’s up to you to decide. I just love frosting so for me, it’s all a win-win!

Just be certain that whatever frosting you choose, it’s a thicker frosting that’s going to be strong enough to hold up the Oreo ears. 

Are you ready to get this simple cupcake recipe? You’ll be enjoying bite after bite in no time at all.
