Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey Cupcakes
A Fun Halloween Treat featuring Disney’s Fantasia Mickey Mouse
Okay, so you guys now know what a TOTAL Disney geek I am…and if this is your first time visiting Serendipity and Spice and you’re a big Disney fan...then follow me because I LOVE all things Mickey Mouse and Disney! My Instagram is overflowing with my favorite Disney quotes and we won’t even get started with all the fun stuff I repin over on Pinterest.
Anyway, one of my favorite movies is Disney’s Fantasia….especially the part with Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice. There’s just something so magical about Mickey anyway but to make him magical is just awesome. Every time we go to Hollywood Studios I love gazing at the big sorcerer’s apprentice hat. Although, can I say what a shame it is that they built that awful stage that pretty much blocks the view of the hat? I really hate that they did that and every time we visit I hope that they’ve changed it. Other than the American Idol stage I love everything about Disney!
These cupcakes are no exception….I’m totally nuts about them. These Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey Cupcakes make the perfect little treat to bring home a little Disney magic….and they’re always a hit at parties….because not only are they super adorable but they’re also pretty darn yummy too!
