Elsa Mickey Ears Cupcakes
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are absolutely obsessed with the Frozen movies. Seriously, we “let it go” and “run into the unknown” on a daily basis. It’s kind of a thing, if you can’t tell. So that means, when we have a get-together, the request is often for a Frozen themed party.
Hence, the making of these awesome Elsa Mickey ears cupcakes. They’re the easiest Queen Elsa cupcakes, with a little twist of the added Mickey ears. So fun and really simple. If you’re ready to make a fun Frozen cupcake, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Frozen Cupcakes
- Start with your favorite vanilla cupcake–you don’t want to be disappointed with the whole cake thing. I like to use my Lazy Girl cupcake recipe. It’s no-fail fluffy-and-light-cupcake anyone can make, as long as you can follow the simple directions.
- Allow the fondant ears and bows to sit overnight on the counter. You can use them right away, sure, but at the end of the day, if they can dry out, they will be a lot less likely not to flop over and be all bendy.
- I adore the way that this frosting looks. It’s just a super simple technique where you put the two colors of icing into the same piping bag. So cool.
- To make the snowflakes, I just piped out some melted chocolate onto some parchment paper, but you COULD make them from fondant using a mold that you can grab here. That would be so much simpler, honestly–I just didn’t think of it beforehand. Ha!
