Anyway, I made her some Minnie Mouse cupcakes ~ (I just checked out google images for inspiration)
Found some pink cupcake papers with white polka-dots at Michaels.
Made a boxed cake and dressed it up with 1 box of pudding and 1 cup of sour cream
And, made some yummy frosting.
The hardest part was making the ears (ok not really) and the bows (a little harder) out of fondant.
I purchased some white fondant and colored some of it black and some of it pink ~ it's a good idea to wear some sort of glove (or, coating your hands with a little vegetable shortening will help too) while coloring your fondant or your hands may look like this (for most of the next day):
Rolled the black out and cut circles for ears using a small round cookie cutter.
For the bows, I rolled out the pink fondant and cut it into strips, then cut the strips into 3 sections.
2 of the sections I formed around my pinkie finger to make the bow loops and smooshed the two together.
The 3rd piece was used to make the middle "knot". I just placed it over the middle and connected the two ends in the back.
I let these dry overnight so they would firm up.
The next day ~ right before the cupcakes were to be displayed, I placed all of the pieces on top of the frosted cupcake (which I frosted without a tip).
Smiley LOVED them!
Wanna make a minnie mouse skirt?
