I just came across your blog on my search for mouse cupcakes. My almost three year old son is a HUGE fan of anything mouse, and we plan to have a whole mouse party. Your cupcakes are AWESOME, and the rest of your ideas/crafts/entire blog is soooo lovely. I am a new fan, and cant wait to read all your old posts, and start to keep up with your current ones!
Keep rockin out the ideas!

Hi, to make the mouse I used a wide circle tip with stiff frosting. Hold the tip close to the surface and squeeze till the size of the frosting is the right size for the base of your mouse. Slowly pull up the tip as you squeeze, decrease pressure as you lift. You should end up w/ a mound of frosting that kinda looks like a mouse. Using a wet finger pat down the point of your mount to make it flatter. Then using C-shaped tip I piped on the ears. Start at the base of where the head should be and make a small 'O' with your tip. For the eyes, tail and mouth use a small circular tip. Good luck and definitely practice before making the mice on your cupcakes.

Thanks for sharing your mouse cupcakes! They're so cute! I plan to make them tonight for my daughter's birthday tomorrow. Can you describe how you made the mice? I'm not very experienced at piping so any hints you could provide would be helpful. Thanks.

I love this idea! Thank you for sharing it. Can you explain a little more about how you created the mouse itself? I'm hoping to make these tonight for my daughter's birthday and my experience piping icing is very limited.

Just getting ready to reproduce your cupcakes for our Mouse party!!! What tip, or technique did you use for the mouse itself?
TIA
