Disney is pulling out all the stops this year! Adding to the Disney Parks, Creating a Disney Streaming Service, launching an AMAZING 2019 Movie Release Plan and, we can’t for get all of the live shows, like Disney on Ice! However, we should never forget the mouse, who inspired Walt Disney all those years ago, to dream up and create what we have! This my Thank you to Mickey. They are my Mickey Mouse Inspired Cupcakes! (and yes, it’s an easy recipe too!)
Mickey Inspired Walt and Mickey Mouse Inspired Cupcakes, well this batch at least!
It is easy to see why these are Mickey Mouse inspired cupcakes. I mean, his known-the-world-over red shorts and those unmistakable, but beloved by EVERYONE, ears. It’s cute, it’s fun, it’s simple, the kids will understand the reference and the parents will too!
Let’s make these mousy bad boys, shall we?
You don’t need very much to put these together. It’s a lot easier than you think.
- 12 cupcakes, baked and frosted in white frosting. I used a mix of chocolate and vanilla, but you could bake any of your favorites. (Psssst…You can even grab them from the grocery store bakery and no one will be the wiser!)
- 1 package of Original OREO Thins (You’ll 2 per cupcake)
- 12 Wilton Cupcake wraps. (They are glittery and you’ll get 6 red and six pink. You always use another red cupcake wrap or…. Use these cute, edible bows and the pink ones become Minnies!
- A White Sheet of Foam, scissors and quick-dry glue. My daughter cut out 24 circles, about the size of a dime and glued them onto the cupcake wraps. (you could also use pre-cut foam stickers or poms!)
Once your Mickey pants are dry, slip a cupcake in and admire your work, as you open a pack of OREO Thins! I know it’s tempting, but try to remember, you still need 2 Thins per cupcake!
Here are a few fun pictures and stuff from Disney on Ice: Mickey’s Search Party in Minneapolis!
I think I had just as much fun as my kids! In fact, the guy sitting next to me, tapped me on the shoulder and asked, “Do you know ALL the songs?” I kind of snickered and answered by nodding my head and asking him if I should stop singing. He smile and said, “No, not at all!”.
Parent Pro Tip:
During the intermission, the vendors come around. *shudders* This is when your wallet gets really empty! I’m talking about $15 dollar Cotton Candy, $10 Popcorn. a $30 Light-up Elsa Wand and a $35 Light-up Maui Fish Hook!!!! I was warned by a gracious parent before I went, so I wanted pass it forward. All of the things are EXPENSIVE and yes, you kids will want ALL the things.
We set a 1 treat limit on our kids before we left the house. That meant they could pick ONE thing, edible or toy, didn’t matter, but only ONE!
I highly recommend that you see a Disney on Ice show, at least once in your life! Believe me, it is not just for kids. I am also 40 and got just as excited as the kids!

Cargo Food Authority is an amazing restaurant on the ground level of the Target Center. Their menu is incredible! Stop in before your show and grab a bite.
By the way: That $15 Cotton Candy did come with a special souvenir and it is the ONLY reason I said yes.
