After returning from my business trip I signed up for a cake for Birthday Dreams. I just love this charity Birthday Dreams (bringing birthday's to homeless kids). I of course picked a crazy busy week and almost forgot I signed up. So I had to make a quick cupcake design. I had a Mickey Mouse cutter from Caden's party a while back so I made these up. Not my best but still cute! Thank God I had a bunch of Modeling Chocolate left over so they were a breeze to put together. Recipe below if you haven't made it before.
12oz Candy Melts
1/4 Cup light corn Syrup
Melt your Candy Melts in microwave (mine takes about 2 minutes). Stir them to become smooth and add the corn syrup. It will become thick and form a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let it sit out and dry. Takes a few hours or over night is best. (Alexis note: I found to roll this out use a little powder sugar (like you would do with flour), also you have to kneed it a little like you would dough to make it easy to roll out).
What you Need:
Frosted Cupcakes (I use my Sturdy Buttercream Frosting)
Red Modeling Chocolate
Black Modeling Chocolate
Cut the Mickey / Minnie Mouse head out of black Modeling chocolate. I then made red and pink circles to represent Mickey and Minnie Mouse. I used a little water to attach the black head to the circle. I then added my toppers to frosted cupcakes.
Thanks for Stopping by!
