As a self confessed Disney obsessive, I have to fill my Disney needs daily. Today, this was through cupcakes. If you follow my Pinterest, you will know I spend a lot of time pinning Disney favs, and I find so much inspiration through Pinterest. My Mum is going into hospital on Monday for a big operation, and so I decided that tonight, we're going to have a cupcake each whilst watching Tangled, snuggled with the dogs and the cat. I make all my cupcakes from scratch and generally make them up as I go along (hence the fact I threw a whole load of Oreos into the batter!) but you can make this easier by using a ready mix box which I will list below:
001. Mix a box of Betty Crocker Devils Food Cupcake mix with 2 eggs, oil, and water.
002. Crumble in as many Oreo's as you want. I used 3 Mini Oreo packets.
003. Pop in the oven at 170 degrees for 15 minutes.
004. Once cooled, mix up whatever frosting you're using and pipe onto the cupcakes.
005. Assemble two Mini Oreos as ears.
On my cupcakes, I've also sprayed the top with a gold spray by Dr Oetker. I find this gives it a really nice magical effect. Putting the cupcakes in polkadot cases also emphasise the Disney effect! When you bite into the middle, the cakes should be soft, moist and full of Oreo goodness. Nomanom. There are so many different ways you can do Disney cupcakes and I'm always experimenting. For Minnie Mouse, its fun to get little bows and put them between the Oreo ears, or you can lay a big Oreo flat on the icing, and then have the two Mini Oreo ears next to it for a larger Mickey Mouse effect. It's more of an assembly process ;)
I personally find these so magical to look at, and definitely magical to eat. They fill all my Disney needs :)
