We take a family trip to Disneyland every year at the beginning of December to kick off the holiday season. And as part of this family tradition we wear the same Holiday Mickey Mouse Ears as we traipse through the park. We we were thinking about the holiday baking that we wanted to do this year, it occurred to us that our Mickey Ears Cupcakes would look adorable as a Santa Hat. And boy were we right. I think these Mickey Mouse Santa Hat Cupcake are my favorite Christmas Cupcakes that we have ever made!
How to Make Mickey Mouse Santa Hat Cupcakes
You will need:
- Chocolate Cake Mix
- Best Buttercream Frosting
- Wilton 1M Frosting tip
- Wilton 22 Star Decorating Tip
- Red Cupcake Liners
- Mini Oreo Cookies
- Americolor Super Red Food Coloring
- Decorating Bags
- Glue Dots
- White Dots from a Hole Punch
You’ll start with a batch of chocolate cupcakes made up in a red cupcake liner. Next you need to make up a batch of our Best Buttercream Frosting. Put aside 1/4 of the frosting. You’ll use this white batch for the “fur” on the Santa Hat. Tint the rest of the frosting red with Americolor Super Red Food Coloring. Twist open the Mini Oreos and remove the Oreo filling. You will use the chocolate cookie wafers for Mickey’s ears.
Using a pastry bag and a Wilton 1M frosting tip, swirl on some red Best Buttercream Frosting – this is the “hat”.
Now you will need a Wilton #22 Star Decorating Tip. Fill a decorating bag with the white Best Buttercream Frosting and the Star Tip.
Using the white frosting, create a circle of frosting around the red frosting hat.
Add a dab of white frosting for the top of the Santa Hat.
Nestle two Mini Oreo cookie wafers into the frosting for the Mickey Ears. And then use glue dots to affix to white dots on the red cupcake liner for Mickey’s buttons.
These Mickey Mouse Santa Hat Cupcakes are adorable and perfect for a Christmas Party – especially your child’s school Holiday party. And since they are topped with our delicious Best Buttercream Frosting everyone is bound to love them! Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
