Directions:

1. Divide the frosting into 4 bowls. Tint 3 of them various shades of green, using more or less of the yellow food coloring. Then, tint the last bowl taupe.

2. Place a batch of the green frosting in a piping bag fitted with tip #101.

3. Put a dab of frosting on the piping nail and place a square of parchment paper on top. 

4. Pipe the design with the wider part of the tip near the parchment paper and the narrower part on top.

5. Pipe a mound of frosting on the parchment paper and then start piping the petals in a circular motion, rotating the piping nail as you go. 

6. Once the flower shape is complete, slide the parchment paper off the nail and place it on a small baking tray. To create the Mickey design, you will need 1 large flower for the face and 2 smaller ones to form the ears. 

7. Repeat piping instructions with the different shades of green frosting. Once all the designs have been piped, place the tray in the freezer for 2 hours for the designs to firm.

8. Using half of the taupe frosting, spread the frosting over the cupcakes until they are level. 

9. Once the succulent flowers are frozen, gently peel them off of the parchment paper and place them on the cupcakes to form a Mickey design.

10. Fit a piping bag with tip #16 and add the taupe frosting. Pipe small decorative designs onto the empty spaces.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
