Don’t you just love all things Disney? I can’t even tell you which classic Disney movie is my favorite because I love them all. So much of my childhood was spent watching Disney movies on VHS. I was thrilled when I was invited to participate with Girl Loves Glam and other bloggers, along with Get Away Today, to give one of our readers the ultimate Southern California trip. Along with the giveaway, each of us are sharing a Disney themed gift idea. So many fun recipes, crafts, and other tutorials! These cupcakes would go great with some of the different projects being shared today.

So let’s talk about these cupcakes! Believe it or not, these little little cuties are pretty darn easy to put together. First of all, they’re made with a chocolate cake mix and canned frosting. As stressful as it is to put a birthday party together, why make the cake and frosting from scratch? I’m all about the box and can! After baking the cupcakes in red and pink wrappers, glue white buttons onto the red wrappers and pipe frosting onto all 24. Then top with the little Oreos and Minnie bows, a printable that you can download below! And that’s it! These cupcakes are so much fun and the perfect dessert for a birthday party. You could make just Mickey cupcakes are just Minnie cupcakes if you don’t want to do a Mickey and Minnie party.
