Mickey Mouse Cupcakes with Chocolate Mickey Ears
These vanilla cupcakes in a cone are the perfect addition to your next Mickey Mouse Birthday Party. Topped with red frosting and a homemade chocolate cupcake topper, these Mickey Mouse Cupcake Cones are sure to be a hit among the kids! You can even add a bow onto the chocolate to make a Minne Mouse cake topper.
Use melted chocolate to make mickey mouse cupcake toppers.
To make mickey mouse cupcake toppers out of chocolate, first you’ll need to find a mickey ears outline. Either in a coloring book, reading book or you can print a picture.
Lay wax paper or parchment paper on top of the mickey mouse ear .
Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals, mixing in between, until chocolate is melted.
Place the melted chocolate in a piping bag or ziploc bag. If using a ziploc bag, snip the corner close to the tip for thin lines or a little further up for thicker lines.
Pipe the mickey ears outline, the thicker the less likely to break. You can fill in mickey’s ears for a solid chocolate look or drizzle the chocolate on the inside, make sure if you drizzle the chocolate you connect to the outline.
Allow the chocolate to harden, or place in the refrigerator for 5 minutes to speed up the process.
When ready to use, remove the chocolate mickey mouse ears from the wax paper and press into the frosted cupcake.

How to Make Cupcake Cones:
Prepare cake mix according to directions.
Fill each cone about 3/4 full of batter.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
When cooled, frost with red frosting. I use the 1M tip to create the swirl pattern.
Cupcake Cone Alternative:
Instead of making these Mickey Mouse Cupcake Cones – place the Chocolate Mickey Mouse ears on homemade or store bought cupcakes.
Have you ever made cupcakes inside of a cone? They were a childhood favorite, and my kids jump for joy every time I make them.
