Amazing Stitch Cupcakes for Lilo and Stitch Fans

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, it’s not really a secret I believe cupcakes might be the world’s most amazing dessert. In just one batch, I can create 12-24 different little mini desserts. I can make them with a simple vanilla cupcake or with bourbon. Now, I’m not saying I eat a lot of bourbon cupcakes, I’m just saying I could.

Combining a love for Disney and cupcakes means we’re making sure we have our favorite stories covered with fabulous little treats. This week, we’re sharing these fun mouse ear Stitch cupcakes, inspired by Disney’s Lilo and Stitch movie. It’s one of our favorites, so let’s get started.

Tips on Making This Easy Cupcake and Decorating Idea

I know you’re itching to get started but read through these tips. We’re working with fondant accents and bright colors and I promise if you read these, your Stitch cupcakes will be amazing.

  • Your hands should be cleaned between working with the two colors of fondant. The pale pink is easily colored with the blue and the blue can turn purple when the pink is mixed in. Either way, wash hands and clean the work surface between the colors.
  • Don’t roll the fondant too thin or your adorable Stitch ears will be floppy.
  • If you want the ears to be stiff, make them first (as we did) and let them dry on the counter a while with a fan blowing on them. When pressed for time, you can try another of these ways to dry fondant quickly.
  • Order the fondant – trust me! Coloring it isn’t hard but it changes the consistency. I got this small package of blue fondant and this package for the pink fondant.

These mouse ear Stitch cupcakes are going to wow any Lilo and Stitch fan! Made with our popular vanilla cupcake recipe, they come out perfectly fun.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Additional Time 25 minutes
Total Time 53 minutes


Fondant Mouse Ears

Buttercream Frosting

  • 2 cups unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 5 cups powder sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla 
  • 8 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • blue food coloring (just a few drops to start)

Vanilla Cupcakes, cooled


  1. Bake and cool 24 vanilla cupcakes (we use our Pinterest-popular lazy gal's vanilla cupcake recipe here).
  2. To work with fondant, sprinkle powdered sugar onto it evenly. You don’t need a lot, just a thin layer.
  3. Roll out blue fondant into a flat dish (about 1/8th of an inch thick) and cut out 24 circles with a round cutter (we used a biscuit cutter) or 2 for every cupcake. Set aside on a cookie sheet (sprinkled with powdered sugar).
  4. Repeat the steps with the pink fondant and the smaller round cutter (2 per cupcake). 
  5. Dip a finger into a glass of water (shake off excess) and rub it onto the back of a pink circle. Place the pink circle in the middle of a blue one. Repeat until all ears are made.
  6. Once all are made (or about 10 minutes), use a knife to cut out a triangle from the circles. Repeat on all ears. Set all ears aside to dry (see tips above on drying fondant quickly if you're not making these ahead of time). 
  7. Make the buttercream frosting by combining all frosting ingredients in a stand mixer and setting to mix on medium speed until fully incorporated until relatively stiff peaks form. If needed, add in a few more drops of blue food coloring or more cream and mix again. NOTE: your buttercream should be stiff to hold the form.
  8. Scoop the frosting into the piping bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe a dome of buttercream by squeezing with consistent pressure, swirling around the outside of the cupcake, and lifting the bag up. Taper it off in the center.
  9. Add the Stitch mouse ear decorations, one on each side. Enjoy! collage of steps to make a lilo and stitch cupcake inspired by Disney using pink and blue rolled fondant
