Fun Daisy Duck cupcakes are a great way to get a taste of Disney at home. These easy Disney cupcakes not only have a lot of character, but the french vanilla cake mix paired with the vanilla frosting and sweet fondant pieces are also sure to dazzle your taste buds.

Kids in the Kitchen

I’m a fan of learning through hands-on experiences. Including kids in the baking process is a great way to learn about measurements and following directions.

These Disney cupcakes have three super fun colors of fondant. The kids will love molding and creating the fondant ears and bows for the Minnie ears on top!

If your children are too young to trust with food, set them up with this fun Cupcake Playdough set and they’ll feel like they are a part of the excitement.

So let’s get QUACK-ing!

How to Make Disney Character Cupcakes

First, there are a lot of simple steps to these easy character cupcakes. Don’t let it overwhelm you- just work one step at a time. The end result will be sweet, I promise!

Mickey Ears and Minnie Bow

Decoration Ingredients

White buttercream fondant
Purple buttercream fondant
Yellow fondant
Wilton fondant bow mold
Daisy floral fondant plunger
Mini circle fondant cutter

If you prefer, the Wilton fondant is also good, but I really love the Fondarific buttercream fondant brand. They are easy to work with and taste great. Plus, there’s a 40% off coupon right now, and saving money is always nice!

I also prefer these circle fondant cutters because they have a rubber-covered side that is safer for little hands.

Fondant Ears and Bow Directions

Sprinkle some powder sugar onto a cutting board. Then roll out the white fondant. Using a rolling pin, roll until the dough is 1/4 inch thick.

Cut out 48 circles of the white fondant for the ears. This is a great step for an older child. If they don’t get 48 circles the first try, roll the extra fondant into a ball and use the rolling pin to thin it out again.

Set the Mickey ears aside.

Roll out more white fondant into 1/4 inch thickness. Use the small and medium daisy fondant plunger to cut of floral pieces. You’ll need 24 of each size. Set aside to dry.

Powder your hands with confectioners sugar and roll tiny bits of the yellow fondant into a tiny ball. They should be small enough to fit inside the smallest fondant flower. Set aside for drying time.

Flower Directions

Dip your finger into a cup of water and lightly dab it onto the back of the small daisy fondant piece. Then place the small flower into the middle of the bigger daisy.

Carefully dab a small amount of water onto the yellow ball and place it in the center of the daisies. Allow the assembled flowers to dry for a few hours.

Dab a bit of water onto the side of one of the white circles and place the daisy on the ear. Make sure to put the flower on the outer edge so it won’t be in the way of the bow. Allow it to dry for a few hours.

Bow Directions

Powder your hands with powdered sugar and mold the purple fondant into a ball. Pinch off 1 teaspoon size ball of fondant and press it into the larger bow size mold. Carefully tap the mold to release the bow. Make 24 bows.

3 large eggs room temp
1/2 C of Unsalted sweet cream butter, softened

Fill cupcake liners 3/4 of the way full. Bake in the oven for about 21 minutes.

Pull out the cupcakes and allow to cool completely on wire racks before frosting.

Homemade Vanilla Frosting

Vanilla Frosting Ingredients

Unsalted sweet cream butter softened
Powdered sugar
Heavy whipping cream
Pure Vanilla extract
1 Large piping bag with large star tip

Vanilla Frosting Directions

Using a standing mixer or a mixing bowl with a hand mixer, combine the butter, powdered sugar, heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and mix on medium speed until combined and smooth.

Scoop the white frosting into the disposable piping bag.

Putting Together the Cupcakes

Frost the cooled cupcakes with the frosting. Place purple bow (standing up) into the center of the frosting. Place an ear on either side of the bow, making sure each cupcake gets one with a flower.

Enjoy!
