Yesterday my 2nd daughter turned 3.  She is my third child and I no longer dig the hassle and stress of throwing the extravagant kiddie birthday party.  Will she remember?  No.  Does she care?  No.  Of course I want to make her day special with her friends at school and family who come over to celebrate the big day.  I have very little extra time, so when it comes to quick and easy, I’m all for it!

I decided to make cupcakes featuring her favorite character, Minnie Mouse.  It’s so easy, even the kids can help.

Here’s How I did it:

I bought Wilton Fondant at AC Moore with a 50% off coupon and pink and black dye. Dye some fondant black and some pink.  Wilton also sells fondant pre-colored.  Keep the fondant covered in plastic wrap so that it doesn’t dry out.

To make the ears simply roll out the black fondant with a rolling pin on a flat surface sprayed with pam or lightly dusted with cornstarch.  Dust off the cornstarch using a pastry brush.  Cut out circles with circle cutters and place onto a cookie sheet to dry.

Take the pink fondant and shape into a bow.  Use the end of a skewer to make the wrinkled shape in the bow.  Set on a cookie sheet to dry.  Roll a small ball, lightly dampen the center of each bow with water and flatten the ball making it look like the center of a bow.

To ice your cupcake, fill a freezer plastic bag with icing, cut the bottom corner to the desired size and pipe a swirl on top of the cupcake.  Put two ears on top and add the bow.  I bought Wilton Heart Sprinkles to add to the cupcakes.  Ta da!!  Enjoy!
