Today’s post is just a bit of show and tell. I made these cupcakes for a friend’s son’s second birthday. He just loves Mickey Mouse, so I tried my best to make them cute. I think they turned out ok, had I found a good chocolate mold in time I would have used that instead. These I made free hand, or rather with a cutout made of cardboard. I traced them onto parchment, flipped the parchment over and poured the chocolate, for the red parts I used red candy melts.
The cupcakes are a simple yellow cake with a homemade strawberry filling, the frosting is vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.
