This Foodie Friday isn't really about food, it's more about the awesome cupcake mold I got at Disneyland. It's a silicone cupcake/muffin mold in the classic Mickey shape. I didn't have time to make cupcakes from scratch, but I really wanted to test it out!
You can make 6 at a time, which means making a whole batch of cupcakes takes a long time. Since the silicone mold is a little flimsy, I placed it on a baking sheet for support.
I just grabbed what I had on hand to make the cupcakes. Be sure to spray the inside of the Mickey shapes with Pam or other non-stick baking spray. Don't forget a few short sprays to get the ears.
I baked them according to the box. When they were done, I flipped the silicone mold over and giggled it around to get the cupcakes to pop out. For the most part, they came out easily.
Super cute, huh?
I attempted to frost a few of them... terrible idea. Super hard to frost and still maintain that Mickey shape. Maybe a good drizzle of melted chocolate would work better. Brownies would work great in the pan. I'm thinking of trying crustless quiche next! :)
