Mickey Mousse


Thanks for stopping by for another day of Disney Week.  Our 3-year-old has recently gotten very excited about anything with Mickey Mouse.  Only he calls him Mickey-the-Mouse, which I think is about the cutest thing ever (related to Thomas-the-Train maybe?)

The mousse I made is the mousse part only from this cake recipe at Our Best Bites, and I doubled it.  I prepared it in the morning, left it in the fridge, and then spooned it into "fancy" cups from the Dollar store (6 for $1!)

To make the Mickeys, melt chocolate wafers in the microwave at half power then spoon into a plastic bag.  Snip a tiny hole in one corner and squeeze the chocolate Mickey shapes.  To keep them consistent, I printed some images off my computer and put the wax paper over the top so I could see through.  



I did the 2 ear circles, the head circle, and then just zig-zaggy lines to fill them in. 



Wait until they're completely cooled before trying to peel them off the paper.  And always make extras in case they break!  I would love to see these on top of cup cakes too :)  Top mousse with whipped cream and a chocolate Mickey.

  5. I love how these turned out! My son is currently obsessed with Mickey Mouse and he would go crazy if I made mousse mouse ears! Don't you just love the printed image/wax paper technique!? I used the same thing to make shamrock cupcake toppers for St. Paddy's Day :o) I am totally pinning this and then going to head over to see some of your other Mickey Mouse tutorials :o) -Sarah @ Repeat Crafter Me

  6. These are adorable - what a great idea!! Thanks for sharing. My 3 yr old will love them. On Mickey mouse clubhouse I think Pete calls Mickey "Mickey da mouse", too cute that's what your little one calls him.
