My oldest daughter Bea is graduating high school in a few weeks. Instead of going to the prom, she wanted to go on their Grad Nite, which simply means she gets to go to Disneyland with other seniors. :)
She and her friends wanted to wear Disney themed hair bows for this special event, so they went on a sleepover and made their own hair bows while watching some Disney movies.
These are her Alice in Wonderland themed hair bows. They turned out real pretty, don't you think?
And to make their sleepover a little bit more memorable, I made some Mickey and Minnie Cupcakes. Everybody thought they were adorable. :)
You can get the template and instructions on making the Mickey and Minnie chocolates here.
The cupcake wrappers are free printables by Cupcake Addiction and you can find it here.
I used Cake Mate Glitter Gels for Minnie's hair bow (neon pink).
For the cupcakes, I used Betty Crocker Devil's Food cake mix. I made and baked them as directed on the box.
Here is the recipe for the buttercream frosting. Recipe is courtesy of the Betty Crocker site.
3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
In a mixing bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the milk.
Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
