DD's 1st birthday party- need some Minnie Mouse Menu Ideas
I don't want to go overboard, because both dh and my families are traveling about 2 1/2 hours to get to her party, and if the weather is bad, no one will be able to make it. (Which is a significant possibility during January in central PA! )
I am thinking about trying to make cupcakes instead of ordering a sheet cake or anything, but I am not sure how to decorate them- maybe get red frosting, and do white polka dots on them? I am not too creative, lol.
I will have to search on ebay to see if I can get a Mickey shaped cookie cutter; maybe then I can do cheese cutouts, or something like that. I wish I could get a hold of some of the Mickey pretzels that are in WDW- that would be much easier!

You could use the Mickey head egg ring (if you have one) for big cookies or for pancakes

If it's not too late
You can make a template from foil or parchment paper (just draw directly on it, then cut out with scissors) and use a sharp knife (probably a paring or boning knife would work best) to cut around the shape for sandwiches or cheese, etc. This could even work for a sheet cake or "mini" cakes that have become popular. Also if you cut out the middle of a different template you can create a pattern to sprinkle sugar crystals on cupcakes or whatever in the shape you have made.
I have found that cupcakes work better with kids because they each have their own. Also if you check in an arts & crafts store (Joann's, Michael's. AC Moore, etc) they have a better selection of pre-made decorative items for cake/cookie decorating.
Good luck! Jenn
