It’s hard to believe that Mickey Mouse turns 90 today, with November 18 marking the release of “Steamboat Willie.” Mickey has been on many adventures over those 90 years, helping build Disney into the mega corporation it is today.

There’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than with snacks, and there’s no better way to celebrate Mickey’s birthday than with some wonderful Disney inspired treats. Get ready to be our guest and travel to a whole new world with these recipes that are just waiting to add some magic to your celebration today!

 

Mickey Mouse Oreo Cupcakes

It just wouldn’t be a birthday celebration without cake, so let’s start this delish list off with a Mickey cake recipe, inspired by food from the parks. These Mickey Mouse Oreo Cupcakes have Oreo cookies as ears, with cream cheese/Oreo frosting.

The recipe yields 24 cupcakes, so you’ll have more than enough to share with friends! Of course, if you really want to host a magnificent Mickey party, you could make a few batches – but that might require a bigger oven. If your oven isn’t up to the task, stop by today and we’ll help you find one big enough to throw the best party possible.

If you are looking for some Mickey breakfast, however, you could also whip up a batch of Mickey Mouse pancakes. Just take a look as this pancake artist brings the famous Mouse to life ... in an edible form!

 

Poisoned Apple Cake Pops

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who makes the best cake pops of all? Well, take a look in the mirror, because with this recipe it could be you!

Cake pops are great for parties, birthday parties, and for any occasion, really. These cake pops even have a fall twist, based on the infamous poison apple from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Caked in red chocolate with a white chocolate shell, you won’t want to pass on these apples.

 

Pretzel Broomsticks

One of Mickey’s most memorable appearances was when the mischievous mouse stole a magic hat during the Sorcerer’s Apprentice section of “Fantasia.” While he isn’t quite as mischievous now as he was in his younger days, Mickey still is relevant as ever.  

These pretzel broomstick party snacks are a great throwback to that classic Mickey segment, and also give you a salty option for your birthday celebrations. Of course, you’ll want to make sure your oven can handle magic brooms, and if yours has been on the fritz lately, let us show you all the magic that a new oven can bring!

Then, grab some pretzels, phyllo dough, and nacho cheese and get ready to mop up your hunger with some fun snacks.

Chocolate Hunny Pots with Honey Mousse

If there’s one Disney character that knows how to eat, it’s definitely Pooh. His love of honey is legendary, and it’s hard to go wrong when it comes to delicious mousse. Mmmmm. Chocolate bowls -- filled with mousse – and some honey on top. Now there’s a treat worthy of a celebration.

The recipe also calls for refrigeration, so make sure you have space open in your refrigerator. And if you find that you are often struggling to make enough space in there – or things just aren’t as cool as they once were – then it probably is time to look into getting a new fridge. We always offer the latest in refrigeration technology, so swing by and check our selection out on your way to The Hundred Acre Wood.

 

Hidden Mickey Cake Roll

We just couldn’t let this blog end without one more cake recipe. It isn’t every day a mouse turns 90, after all!

Finding Hidden Mickeys in the Disney Parks has long been a pastime for fans, and now you can make your own hidden Mickey right at home! We’re craving this cake roll, so if you make it, be sure to save some for us! Sprinkles … whipped cream … we just can’t resist!
