I am not a baker, it is not my number one skill. Yet I saw these hidden Mickey cupcakes on the DisneyWays.com blog and I knew that I needed to make them. Since I am not a baker I just don’t have the desire to make anything from scratch so I bought a brownie mix and a golden butter cake mix from the store. I was given two bags of frosting from The Frosting Queens to use for a Pinterest contest so it seemed like a good time to make the cupcakes.
The first step is to watch the video of how to make the Hidden Mickey Cupcakes from How To Cook That because there is a trick to making the Mickey Mouse shape within the cupcake.
After they are done you will only need 1/2 of them for the recipe so you can eat the rest of them, yum. Crumble them up in to a bowl with 1/2 of the cupcake batter and 1/4 cup water. When we did this they ended up being too watery so we added more brownies and a bit more flour.
This will be a sticky process, we washed our hands a lot. Then make snake shapes and form them into circles. These are Mickey’s ears and you put them on top of the ball. (be sure to watch the video…or else what I am saying makes no sense).
Bake the cupcakes according to the directions and let them cool about 15-20 minutes. Then it is time to frost them. I used The Frosting Queens frosting; it was very fluffy and ready to use. I just cut the corner of the bag and away we went.
We choose to use the Charmed Chocolate on our Hidden Mickey Cupcakes. I am picky about the frosting for my cupcakes and this passed my test. Look at how awesome that looks straight out of the bag.
I hope you end up giving these a try, they were a lot of fun to make with my girls.
