Minnie Mouse Cupcakes


Before the weekend we celebrated the twins 5th birthday. Wow, five!

Their party was Minnie Mouse themed, and this year I decided to make cupcakes for the very first time ever. Well, not ‘ever’, but it was a first for not having a cake or two for my kids birthday. I’m usually a cake kind of gal like the Hello Kitty Birthday Cake from last year.

Some of the Minnie Mouse Cupcakes were chocolate, others a white cake and then even more which were swirled with the two. Complicated? Nah, I just made a white and chocolate cake batter and then decided on the swirl when I had leftovers. I mean, I SLAVED ALL DAY. #lie

Since I detest sweet icing, I always make a pudding/dream whip icing, which I won’t get into for now … yet, would you like me to post the recipe sometime?

Piped on top with some purchased Minnie Mouse candies making two different choices for cupcakes – voila!

I would have thought the cupcakes with the little bows and mini Oreos for ears would be the bigger hit. I was wrong, all the kids wanted cupcakes with the Minnie Mouse Face. Go figure {who passes up Oreos?} but she IS a cutie so I understand.

Happy Birthday 5th birthday to my beautiful Twincesses!



  1. Adorable! I am a cake girl also. You should check out my cake album sometime. And yes, definitely post the recipe!! 🙂

  2. Love the cupcakes, you did a great job! And yes please post the recipe when you get a chance!

  3. Those are really cute 🙂 We did a Princess and Pirate them this year for my 3 year old so we had a princess cake (made with a Cinderella barbie) and pirate cupcakes.

    Happy birthday to your girls!

  4. They turned out to be really fun!

    I wonder if they will ever disagree on the party theme? I’d think that would be hard with multiples, or kids that have parties around the same time. At least they are both girls. Otherwise 1/2 would be Minnie Mouse and the other half would be Mickey.

    1. Well, it will happen. Especially for parents with b/g twins.
      Mine changed their minds many times before settling on Minnie Mouse, and it was always different requests from each. thought I’d have a problem on my hands – code beige!!!

  5. My daughter is turning 3 on Dec and my sisters and I are thinking of what theme it’s gonna be. She likes Mickey and Minnie as well, and some other cartoons too. Hard to decide, though.

    Happy Wordless Wednesday-ing from the Philippines! ;o)

  6. Those are the yummiest looking cupcakes. Mom just had to check them out. She’s always loved cupcakes even before they were the “in” thing. Happy Birthday to your girls. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thank you – for the compliments and for the birthday wishes!!
      Have a great rest of the week!

  7. Happy birthday to your twins! Love the cupcakes. Never thought of using Oreo cookies as mouse ears.

  8. Happy 5th birthday to your girls (kindergarten this year??_ and GREAT job on the cupcakes – they are so cute 😀

    I would LOVE one day to hear your pudding/dreamwhip icing recipe – it sounds excellent 🙂

  9. wow wish I actually would think of ideas like this, quick easy yet very cute. my decorations usually sink into the icing.

  10. I think the kiddos always want the opposite of what we think they will. Sweet cupcakes 🙂

  11. You did a great job! Those look beautiful and delicious. Hope they had a great birthday 🙂

  12. these cupcakes are absolutely adorable. Have you posted the pudding/dream whip icing recipe? That would be of big interest to me as I don’t like overly sweet butter icing any more.

  13. November 4-You are a very resourceful Mom and I loved both types of topping. I did like the full Minnie face better tho. Thanks for a really good idea for icing and enjoy those twins!

  14. November 4–I loved the Cupcakes and the icing and decoration., I liked the full Minnie Mouse face best as well. That must mean I am a kid at Heart. I hope you all had a wonderful day and thank you for sharing with us.
