By special request from my mini-me, I made this Mushu dragon Mulan cupcake cake because the day called making a man out of my cupcakes! LOL!
Mushu Dragon Mulan Cupcake Cake
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love our Disney princesses. But the honest truth is that Mulan holds a really special place in my heart. I mean really really. It came out at a time when I really felt like the world needed a strong leading-lady and the story just resonated with me. So, when the kiddo asked for a Mushu cupcake cake, well, there was no stopping me.
See, Mushu is the most fun part of the original Mulan movie and I’m kind of bummed there won’t be a little dragon spirit in the remake. But that’s ok. I’ll make my own–in cupcake format. If you’re ready to bring Mushu to life in a cupcake cake, let’s get started.

Tips to Make A Mushu Dragon Cake
- Normally, I’d tell you to start with my Lazy Girl cupcakes. But the deal is…you need a lot of cupcakes to make this Mulan cupcake cake. So…you have to start with a LARGE BATCH Lazy Girl cupcake recipe! LOL! Just add cocoa powder to the desired chocolate level.
- Ok. So…let’s talk about food coloring for a second. you are not getting red red Mushu-red icing without gel food coloring like this. Seriously, don’t try the liquid stuff you’d find in your grandma’s spice cabinet. Red icing calls for gel food coloring.
- Now, let’s talk about the icing you need to make this fun dragon cupcake cake. You can use buttercream icing or cream cheese icing–and hey, no shade on the canned icing game. But for me, I had to do a homemade buttercream. I mean, it’s my favorite and you can thin it up a little so that it’s super easy to spread. I love it.
