When I think of Disney and Halloween, I think of one thing – MICKEY PUMPKINS! The Magic Kingdom is covered in Mickey Pumpkins this time of year and they are my favorite thing! When I got home from a fall trip to Walt Disney World a few years, I was inspired to make my own Mickey Pumpkins but editable ones. So cupcakes it was, and that's how we ended up with these adorable Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Cupcakes, that are perfect Disney treats for Halloween parties.

How to Make Mickey Pumpkin Cupcakes
These are super simple to make, even the kids can make them. The first thing you need to do is bake your cupcakes according to the package directions. Once they are baked and cooled you need to make your icing, unless you are using can icing. We made the homemade buttercream because it’s our favorite!
Decorating Your Mickey Pumpkin Cupcakes
Ice your cupcake in a circular pattern going counter-clockwise starting on the outer edge and going towards the center like you are making a spiral-type design.
Next place the candy melt to make the ears of your Mickey Pumpkin.
Then put a Tootsie Roll in between your Mickey's ears, this is the “stem” of your pumpkin
That’s it, I told you it was super simple!
