Minnie Mouse Cupcakes
I’ve been taking a break from creating things for my store to do whip up some Minnie Mouse cupcakes for my niece Chloe’s 2nd birthday party. Of course, I couldn’t resist creating a polymer centerpiece to round out the display.
About the Cupcakes
For the vanilla lovers, I created “pink velvet” cupcakes by adding a small amount of red food coloring into the french vanilla cake mix. I iced them in a pure white vanilla icing and topped some with pink sugar, others with red. For the chocolate lovers, I baked a batch of chocolate fudge cupcakes topped with the same white icing. These became “Minnie” with the addition of some mini Oreo ears and a red icing bow.
About the Centerpiece
The focal point of the cupcake display was a polymer Minnie keepsake that I created for Chloe’s mom. I covered three hollow egg shells with polymer for the Minnie figure and the balloons. I anchored the whole thing in a recycled jelly jar lid filled with more polymer.
