One of my favorite things about Walt Disney World in the fall is Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. Last week, I was lucky enough to visit Walt Disney World with my family and we attended this Spooktacular Party.
Upon returning home we didn’t want the Disney Halloween fun to end, so I made these little Mickey Mouse ghost cupcakes! I’m a novice baker, using box mixes most of the time, so you can guarantee these big eared spooks were easy to make. Here’s my simple tutorial for you to enjoy a little Disney Halloween fun too!
Gather your supplies: White cake cupcakes, white baking cups, white icing, white chocolate, Nilla wafers, Black M&M candies.
- Make your white cake cupcakes as you would normally do and allow them to cool.
- Once the cupcakes are cool, apply white icing.
- Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler or what I find easiest is to melt your chocolate in the microwave at 30 second increments until it is melted through.
- Dunk the Nilla wafers in the chocolate until both sides are coated and allow them to cool on a waxed lined cookie sheet. These will be your Mickey ghost ears.
- While the Mickey ghost ears are cooling, it’s time to make the rest of Mickey’s costume! Take an unused white baking cup (cupcake liner) and fold it in half. Cut the bottom off of the baking cup and then cut the one side of the liner. This will allow you to wrap your cupcake and create the ghost effect.
- Attach the cut baking cup to the baking cup on the iced cupcake by placing it on the icing. It will act as glue and the little cupcake costume will stay on very easily.
- Add your Mickey Ears by placing them within the icing
- For the final step, tuck two M&M within the icing centered for little eyes and now you’ve completed your little Mickey Ghost cupcake.
