DIY Mickey Mouse Ears Cupcakes OREO

I have been meaning to post these adorable Mickey Mouse inspired for YEARS now!  Today is the day!  It does not get any easier to whip up some adorable Disney-rific desserts. This post shows box mix cupcakes but you could use your favorite from-scratch recipe.  OR, let’s just be really real and talk about time and how there’s never enough of it… you can absolutely use store-bought cupcakes for these treats!  Stick some red cupcake liners on the bottom and top with the OREO cookies and you’d be done. This is a ZERO judgement zone! I’m always up for a great time-saving hack.

Before I get into the details of these cupcake treats, check out some of the other Disney-themed recipes and snacks that I have shared over the years.
