I would consider myself relatively creative but in my head is not always what is in the execution. I sat all day one morning and surfed pinterest and facebook till I threw my hands in the air and said I will NEVER and I mean NEVER be able to make some of those amazing birthday parties some moms pull together.
And with this handsome amazing little guy turning 2 Friday, it kinda bummed me out.
Then I saw one of my friends share this very cool icing tutorial and I thought…OK, I can TOTALLY trace things. I learned this when I was like 4 years old.
Except here is the thing.
Sooooooooooo, after that debacle, I decided to combine the icing idea with candy chocolate, use some squeeze bottles to make circles that run into each other (which happens quite perfectly), and voila…I created an idiot proof Mickey Mouse Silhouette for his cupcakes.
And in MomDot Blog Tradition, here is your recipe inspiration by photos should you want to do the same thing.
How to Make Mickey Mouse Custom Chocolate Silhouettes for Cupcake Toppers
Check out this super simple Mickey Mouse Cupcake tutorial to make people like you and I, that are probably not as skilled as a professional, LOOK professional!
Once you get the hang of it, you can deviate from the outline there and just go free hand. I made all sorts of sizes and shapes. Just use parchment paper to work with your chocolate and they peel off with no breakage after about 15 min in the fridge.
I even made little Ps name for a custom cupcake.
In the end P’s party was great in my book.
And even if he will have no memory of this day, I really am proud of the little bit of “custom” I brought into it.

You heated the chocolate in the plastic bottles??
No..you heat it however the instructions say on the bags or boxes you get and then pour into it.
Hi, i don’t bake a lot so I just want to confirm before I get started. I’m supposed to blend the icing in with the melted chocolate, correct?
No, no! I was just kinda showing what they did w/ icing- you just melt the chocolate in the squeeze bottles and use those to “trace” 🙂
Love this ! Going to defintely try this what kind of chocolate did you use ?? So it won’t melt
I used the melting chocolate you get from the baking aisle in the craft store..they are usually in mini medallions.
I know this is an old post – but I just came across it on Pinterest. I can totally relate to the “freehand” version of the Scream Mickey. That is what mine would look like – or worse.
I could certainly use melted candy/chocolate and squeeze bottles to make something like this! They turned out really cute. Thanks for the tutorial.
How large did you make the mickeys? I can’t really tell by the silhouettes on the photos!
Some of them I made about the size of a quarter for the face (and 2 dimes for ears) but some I made pretty large, like the same size as the face of a cupcake.
Do you have a printable copy of this?? I love it!!!! What a perfect idea!!!!!
I dont! that would have been a good idea…I didnt know it was gonna work when I made it. LOL!!
Do you have a printable copy of the silhouettes you traced without my having to put one together? Son’s party is Saturday and have a lot of little stuff like this to get done before then! Whew! If so, I would greatly appreciate being able to use it to trace. Thank you in advance.
Oh, Happy B-day little man. The party looks like lots of fun and I LOVE the Mickey Mouse silhouettes that you made. Man, where did the time go???
I love this idea! I did free hand always and hate my writing. I so could have done this instead of oreos! Love the wrapping job – much better than mine – bags! ha 🙂
