Want to spruce up a boring cupcake but don’t want to spend a lot of money on it. Then, boy, do I have a solution for you. First, take a simple cupcake mix and make cupcakes according to the directions on the box.
Then add a dollop or two of frosting. And here comes the secret ingredient – the topper. Now I know that anyone can go to the store and buy toppers but have you ever thought about making your own. And if you know me you know I am all about putting my unique touch on everything.
If you like Minnie Mouse than I have a printable for you. You simply use your home printer and print out the cute printables that you can get by clicking here.
Now that you have done that you need to assemble them. Cut out the printables ( there is a front and a back to these ) and then glue or tape them onto toothpicks.
(Here is a little secret – I hunted high and low in my house for toothpicks and remembered that when I was on cleaning spree a few months back, I had thrown out all of the toothpicks as they were all over the drawer. But I did find these little plastic spoons. So I decided to use those instead. And guess what they worked just fine. So remember to think out of the box when it comes to recipes and presentation.)
These cupcakes were a hit at my daughter’s 18th birthday party. They actually had a special meaning to them. You see my dad always called her Mick Mouse and knowing that there was a mouse on the cupcakes let her know that he was there with us in spirit helping to celebrate her birthday.
