The cake is a huge part of any birthday party, and I must admit I lack creativity when it comes to this detail. Last year my sister iced my cake for me because the idea of icing it stressed me out. This year I saw some cute cupcakes online and decided to try them. Cute Minnie Mouse Cupcakes, yes please!
This was a super easy project. Our family loves chocolate cake so I used chocolate cupcakes and iced them with cream cheese icing turned pink with food colouring. I used white chocolate chips to mimic Minnie's dress.
Next, I made bows to top the cupcakes, and used the tops of oreo's as ears. I wanted just the tops so I brought in a specialist...my husband! When watching tv we often share an oreo (or two or three). I eat the tops and he eats the bottoms with the icing. So he is a pro at carefully separating the tops from the bottom.
Icing on, chocolate chip dots placed, ears in, and bow topping it off! Simple yet adorable!
