If you love Mickey & Minnie, you will love this set!
Lately I find myself using both fondant & royal icing for cupcake toppers because it speeds the process up. Did you know you can freeze royal icing for use later? Yep, you can! Simply put it in airtight containers or a Ziploc bag and freeze. To thaw, set it on the counter and bring it to room temp. This makes me so happy because it means I don’t have to make a big batch for a small project and can keep some on hand for times when I need to write on a banner, make quick flower centers or in this case… make polka dots on some cute little red cupcake toppers.

There are several Mickey cutters in my cookie cutter collection. For this set I used my Mickey gingerbread cutter from Disneyland (Thanks to my friend, SV, for gifting it to me last Christmas..she knows what I like) for the Minnie heads. It’s one of my favorite cutters in my collection and it’s easy to trim off the body so you have a perfect Minnie/Mickey head
It takes a lot of dye to make red & black fondant. I grew lazy in the last few months and bought pre-made red & black fondant. I was constantly being asked what was wrong with my hands after dying fondant & think it’s probably better for me not to be absorbing the dye through my skin (is that what’s wrong with me?)
You see Minnie’s bow? Years ago I bought this set of cutters and remember thinking, “I’ll never use this cutter but I’ve used the shoe cutter quite often for Tinkerbell’s shoes and flipflops. It made the bow work up really fast. I pressed the center together and added a little ball of fondant.
Hopefully you will see some cute Mickey cookies show up on my blog soon.. just need to find the time to do a little baking.
