Mickey Mouse Cupcakes with oreos

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

I have been super duper lazy lately, mainly due to my summer break.. I been lazing around at home all day, catching up with friends, shopping and so on…
This is in stark comparison to what happened last week. I was so pumped after finishing my exams, and I managed to bake 2 cupcakes and 1 brownies in a matter of 5 days. lol… 

Anyhow, last Wednesday I baked chocolate cupcakes for my friends. It was supposed to be for her birthday last October. I didn't have time to bake her cakes that time because I was extremely busy with my assignments and final exams. So, let's get started.

I got an idea to make mickey mouse cupcakes from Erica. It looks really cute and easy to make. 

They are just made from regular chocolate cupcakes (I used boxed mix) baked in red liners, frosted, and then dipped in oreo crumbs. For the ears, I used 2 oreos. The yellow buttons are just from yellow sticky notes that I cut round shaped, attached after the cupcakes were baked. 

Mickey Mouse Cupcakes with Oreos

What you'll need : 
  • 1 cupcakes boxed mix or any cupcakes recipe you like (I used Betty Crocker Chocolate fudge cake mix, it yields 12-16 cupcakes)
  • frosting (I got mine from the boxed mix) 
  • 1 package regular oreos
  • Toothpicks
  • Red cupcake liners 
  • Yellow sticky notes 


  • Bake cupcakes according to package's instructions. Allow to cool completely.
  • Crush oreos ( I only made few of mickey mouse cupcakes, so I'm not sure of the actual number of Oreos needed for a whole batch)

  • Frost cupcakes, trying to create a rounded shape. Dip each cupcake in the Oreo crumbs, making sure to cover all of the frosting.

  • There are two methods to attach the ears. First, I stuck a tooth pick in the cream centre of the cookie and snuggly attached them to the cupcake. Second method, I slit the cupcakes and insert the Oreo cookies in between.

  • Stick 2 yellow round shaped on the front of each cupcake liner. 

 and VOILA!!
