Minnie Mouse Cupcakes Recipe

My favorite thing about cupcakes is the way you can dress them. It’s the best way to host a theme or generally add a flare of fun to your sweet tooth indulgence. Kids naturally add a sense of fun and whimsy to their food, but cupcakes are one of those rare opportunities where we as adults can have some fun too. I especially love adding a touch of Disney magic to my cupcakes which is why I haven’t been able to look at a pair of OREO cookies without instantly thinking of mouse ears. Maybe it’s time for a vacation to Walt Disney World. Or maybe I just need to enjoy some fabulous Minnie Mouse cupcakes complete with a fondant bow.

Minnie Mouse Bows For Cupcakes

The easiest and best-looking way to make a Minnie Mouse bow for your Minnie cupcakes recipe is to use a silicone mold. I love using these molds, they open up all kinds of opportunities to dress up my party foods, or make things in the freezer I never would be able to touch otherwise. When I see a mold with some character, I have to have it and my bow molds are clearly no exception. Especially since they are perfect for one of the most perfect characters, Minnie Mouse.

No Mold for the Minnie Mouse Bows?

If you don’t have a bow mold, that’s okay. It’s merely an opportunity to let your Minnie Mouse cupcakes design and artistry shine! Molds make it easy to quickly form several bows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t hand form bows on your own. Remember, practice makes perfect, your bows could even turn out better when they are handcrafted. I recommend forming the bow out of two pieces. One that you hand form into the proper shape and a thin strip to wrap around the center. You could also form your bow out of thin strips that you can fold for a different bow look.
