My aunt asked me to make these adorable cupcakes for my cousin's girlfriend’s son. These were so easy to make and turned out so cute! After baking, cooling and frosting the cupcakes using the cupcake swirl tip I added the fondant/gum paste Mickey. To create Mickey I did a 50/50 mixture of black fondant and black gum paste. Gum paste dries very hard and very fast, by mixing with fondant you will have more time to roll out, cut out, and "glue". After making your 50/50 mixture and rolling it to a nice thin layer, use two different size of round cookie (fondant) cutter. Make sure to double the amount of the small circles since there will need to be two for every one larger circle. Also make more than needed just in case one messes up. Use sugar glue (water and fondant), water, or vodka to "glue" the ears (smaller circle) to the head (larger circle) in the appropriate space and let try on a cooling rack that is covered with a paper towel. The paper towel is thin enough to let air through, but thick enough to prevent creases from the rack. The little boy ended up LOVING his Mickey Mouse cupcakes. M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side. I love to show case my friend's photography so a lot of the photos are from her. I hope you get inspired.
