For his birthday party, our son Snuggle Puppy chose a Mickey Mouse theme. The cake was a big hit!
For the cupcakes, I made a spice cake, iced with buttercream, and then cut three circles out of fondant to make a Mickey Mouse head on the top of most of them. I don’t usually make a cake AND cupcakes for the kids’ parties, this party was extra special as it was Snuggle Puppy’s first real birthday party ever.
I made Mickey Mouse shaped Rice Krispie treats on lollipop sticks and displayed them by hiding a Kleenex box inside a gift bag and poking the sticks in holes in the bag and box. I handed them out to the kids as they were leaving.
The birthday boy loved the celebration just for him. We had fourteen kids here, plus our seven, and seventeen adults. For food, we served Mickey shaped hamburgers with the fixings, a layered dip, potato salad, Asian salad, devilled eggs, crackers, cheese, pickles, pickled asparagus, and cheese dips. It was a beautiful day, so the kids played outside most of the time and I didn’t need to organize many activities. We played Mickey-Mickey-Minnie (like duck-duck-goose) and I had Mickey party colouring sheets for the kids with markers set out. It was an easy theme to work with as far as colours and decor go. Most importantly, Snuggle Puppy absolutely loved all of it!!!
