Hi happy bakers!

So today is the official first Mickey decorating day! Are you excited? I know I am. It’s crazy how a few simple ingredients and steps can turn a simple rice cereal treat into an animal.

Today we are making TIGERS! RAW!!!!!!!!!!

Have you seen these in the parks? They come in a package of three with a giraffe and zebra Mickey. You can find them at the following locations:

  • Island Mercantile

  • Chester & Hester’s Dinosaur Treasures

  • Discovery Trading Company

  • Mandala Gifts

  • Out of the World

  • Riverside Depot

  • Zuri’s Sweets Shop

First things first, you need to Mickey or Minnie Cereal Treat. You can find the recipe HERE.

What you will need:

  • Premade Mickey or Minnie cereal treats

  • 1 package of orange candy melts (you can also use¬†white candy melts with some orange food coloring mixed in)

  • Milk Chocolate chips or 1 package of brown candy melts.

Let’s get to a decorating!

  1. Place a piece of parchment paper over a baking sheet.

  2. In a medium bowl, place the orange candy melts. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds, and stir. Keep microwaving for 30 seconds and stirring until the candy melts are melted.

  3. Press the top half of Mickey’s head into the candy melt. Make sure to coat the ears and forehead completely. Place the mickey on the prepared baking sheet. Continue with all the Mickey heads.

  4. Place in the refrigerator until completely cool.

  5. In a small bowl, melt the milk chocolate chips or chocolate candy melts the same way you did the orange candy melts.

  6. Remove the Mickey heads from the refrigerator. Drizzle the chocolate over the orange ears.

  7. Let cool completely before serving or the chocolate will spread.

Simple right?!

There are actually two ways to create these Tiger Ear Mickey Heads. The second way is to immediately drizzle the melted chocolate over the orange candy melts. This will give you a flat surface to your Mickey cereal head. That’s probably closer to the original Disney Parks Mickey than the first version. I just really like the raised look of the strips.

Tomorrow we tackle the Giraffe Ears Mickey. I have a special space in my heart for the Giraffe you will see. What’s your favorite animal in Disney’s Animal Kingdom? Which one do you think should have it’s own Mickey cereal treat next?

Happy baking everyone!
