DIY Mickey Mouse Beach-Themed Cupcakes

IMG_70611These Mickey-inspired cupcakes are a great way to celebrate a day at the beach. They are super easy to make  – even the kids can do it.
Light blue food coloring creates water colored icing. Crushed graham crackers are the perfect way to achieve a sand-like decoration.
What You’ll Need
  • cupcakes
  • frosting
  •  light blue food coloring
  • spatula for icing cupcakes
  • freezer paper
  • scissors
  • crushed graham crackers
  • pencil

How to do it:

Cut a square of freezer paper that is slightly bigger than the top of your cupcake (3.5 inch square shown). You’ll notice that one side of the paper is shiny and one side is matte. On the matte side, draw or trace your design.

Using a sharp craft knife, cut out your design (this is a job for adults!).

Frost your cupcakes with a knife or spatula. Lay your stencil, shiny side DOWN, on top of the frosting and press gently around the edges to make sure your crumbs or sprinkles won’t leak out.

Pour graham cracker crumbs or sprinkles all over the top of the cupcake and then shake it gently over a bowl to remove the excess. Repeat.

Carefully peel off your stencil and repeat on remaining cupcakes. You may want to use a paper towel or napkin to wipe any excess frosting off the stencil between cupcakes.
