When I think of Disney and Halloween, I think of one thing – MICKEY PUMPKINS! The Magic Kingdom is covered in Mickey Pumpkins this time of year and they are my favorite thing! When I got home from a fall trip to Walt Disney World a few years ago, I was inspired to make my own Mickey Pumpkins but editable ones. So cupcakes it was, and that's how we ended up with these adorable Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cupcakes that are perfect Disney treats for Halloween parties.

How to Make Mickey Pumpkin Cupcakes

These are super simple to make—even the kids can do them. The first thing you need to do is bake your cupcakes according to the package directions. Once they are baked and cooled, you need to make your icing, unless you are using can icing. We made the homemade buttercream because it’s our favorite!

Once your icing is made, put it in your decorator bag with the star tip. Next, put some Tootsie Rolls and candy melts in bowls to make it easier. Now it’s time to decorate your cupcakes.

Decorating Your Mickey Pumpkin Cupcakes

Ice your cupcake in a circular pattern, going counter-clockwise, starting on the outer edge and going towards the center like you are making a spiral-type design.
