Making a Mummy out of a Mickey – Cooking Halloween Goodness with a Toddler

Making Mickey Mummy Cupcakes with a Toddler by SpoonfulIt’s that time of year again …. HALLOWEEN!!  I love this time of year.  I love fall weather (even though Houston is not as fall like as I would like), I love fall colors, and I love preparing for Halloween.

I needed a weekend project for Little Man and I so I headed off to Spoonful.com.   If you have not visited Spoonful.com yet, it is a one-stop shop filled with thousands of inspired ideas that can bring a little magic into everyday family life.

It was very hard for me to decide what to do but Little Man knew it as soon as he saw it.

Right now his favorite color is white (yes, I know the definition of white is void of all color – oh, well) so when he saw the Mickey Mummy Cupcakes there was no longer any reason to continue.

If you are working with a toddler I highly recommend doing the prep work while they are not in sight.  This will allow you some trial and error and assurance someone won’t be eating the parts as you prepare.

And if you don’t have all the ingredients that Spoonful recommends feel free to improvise – we did.

Instead of the chocolate ears, you can use Oreo cookies.  As luck would have it they were double stuff so we threw the double stuff filling into the the icing.

Instead of chocolate covered raisin eyes try tootsie rolls.  They work great and you can actually mold them into any shape your want.  I will be remembering that for many recipes to ome.

A word of warning, it is much harder to flatten a marshmallow then you would think.  They also have a tendency to bounce back so be prepared to put a bit of time and effort in.

Little Man loved it!  First thing is if you are working with a toddler than these cupcakes will not look like the photos.  I was told to step back  - he would handle it.

You really can let them take the lead and just enjoy the moment.  He was so proud of his creations that I came to believe they were beautiful

The last cupcake was my favorite.  Mickey ended up having 6 eyes and 5 ears.  Perfect!

If you need any other ideas, here are a few that stood out.  Good news for me, many of them are white!

Disney Halloween Craft and Recipe Ideas on Spoonful

  1. Poison Apple Cookies: Create Poison Apple Cookies, a recipe inspired by Disney’s Snow White, with these step by step instructions. Enjoy this fun craft activity with your kids and family.
  2. Oogie Boogie Monster: Looking a bit like a lime green potato sack and hailing from Halloween Town, Oogie Boogie has an insatiable appetite for bugs.
  3. Jack Skellington Halloween String Garland: An adorably festive craft inspired by the King of Halloween Town!
  4. Mickey’s Pumpkin Patch: Made from easy-to-mix salt dough, these colorful miniature pumpkins create a colorful windowsill or tabletop display.
  5. Huey, Dewey & Louie Ghosts: Even their uncle Donald and great-uncle Scrooge McDuck can’t tell them apart. Made from stiffened cotton, these web footed apparitions make a real stand-up decoration.
  6. Franken-Goofy Cupcakes: Sweet, loyal, and charmingly eccentric. That’s Goofy. Until Halloween, that is, when he tosses the green fedora and dons a new look that’s Franken-ly frightful.
  7. Tinker Bell Halloween Ghost: Everybody loves dressing up for Halloween, even fairies. Here’s a pint-size disguise (wink, wink) straight from Pixie Hollow — a tiny tinker ghost to add to your holiday décor.
  8. Mickey Cutie Halloween Bats: When you’re ready to start decorating for Halloween, don’t fly under the radar. Instead, turn heads with a colony of bats — aka mice — in your belfry.

I need to find the mummy fondant or find an icing tip to look like the mummy strips. I can't imagine the taste of smashed marshmallow on a cupcake...

I'm not a huge fan of mummy themed stuff, but a Mummy Mickey is very cool! They look really easy to make and the Mickey aspect of it, makes it so much fun!
