Sure, they're missing some faces, but you can still tell what they are!
And then I remembered... I still had those little toothpick American flags, so needed to use them somehow! So, with some blue & white buttercream icing, and a small star piping nozzle, I made some "Oh my gosh, we're actually going to America!" cupcakes to go with the Mickey & Minnie Mouse cupcakes.
The countdown has been on for a long time for this holiday, and though at the time it feels like aaaaages, it's really gone by quickly, and one more day (no matter how slow or fast it feels) is one more day closer to seeing** Mickey & Minnie Mouse in the flesh***!!
* I think that I am one of those rare people who like Winter... I do enjoy 'daylight savings' as well, but when you have a 3 year old who (when it's nap time) claims "No, it's not dark yet", then you can imagine the excitement when it's now dark at 6pm, instead of 8pm!! ... And also, as part of me recently trying to lose a bit of weight before our holiday by squeezing some exercise into the days, I've been waking up at 6-6:30am to go for a walk or a jog... Again - I'm excited when I can now see where I'm going because the sun is up when I get up!
** N.B. Not tasting, which we've just done...
*** "Flesh" = Fur.
I was reminded of two previous posts while making these Disney World/America cupcakes... First, my daughter's Disney party last year; and second, when we had a couple of friends of ours from overseas stay with us and were 'on vacation'... :)
