Let’s start with some creative variations for decorating cupcakes to resemble everybody’s favorite mouse.

Mickey Mouse Cupcakes With Oreos

Using Oreos for Mickey’s ears are an obvious choice. They’re black, they’re round, they’re sweet and delicious! Here are a few different variations for what you can do with them.

Isn’t this chocolate Mickey Mouse cupcake beautiful? It’s actually pretty simple to make. Simply glue two white buttons onto red cupcake wrappers, pipe on some canned frosting, and top with 2 mini Oreos for ears!

These cupcakes below are made to resemble the huge ones you can get at the Disney World resorts. The Oreo crumbs sprinkled on the top makes a nice touch

That may look like a huge pile of pure icing on the top … but it isn’t! Here’s the secret to how it was made:

Also for the height of the cupcake. It’s not all frosting in my cupcake (their’s yes, mine no). I actually cut the middles from my cupcakes and made cake balls with the cake insides and a little frosting. I then filled the inside of the cupcake with frosting and sat the cake ball ontop of the cupcake. (hope that wasn’t confusing)

Then I swirled the icing onto the cupcake, around the cake ball, to add the height.

The cupcakes below are super-colorful and would be great for a kids’ birthday party. Add red food coloring to buttercream frosting, spread it on the cupcakes, then sprinkle generously with red sugar.

For the Mickey ears, separate and cut the large Oreo cookies in half, keeping the side with the cream. Then separate the small Oreo cookies, keeping the side without the cream. Press 2 small Oreo cookies against the cream of the big half-Oreos.

Place a set of Mickey ears on each cupcake, then add 2 yellow chocolate candies for buttons.
