Charlotte's Minnie Birthday - The Menu

So I know I tend to go overboard, but I just can't help myself; here was the menu:

Pizza - double sliced (16 instead of 8) for the little ones

Fruit Salad

Assorted chips/pretzles


Mickey Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches

Mickey PB and Js
I used a Mickey ear pancake mold thing that I borrowed from a friend
(somewhat annoying to "cut" out but totally worth it!)
Mickey Cupcakes

I used normal cupcakes topped with chocolate icing. The ears are grasshopper cookies.
Mini (small, not Minnie) cupcakes

Minnie Mouse Cake - homemade

Also pictured: Mickey Chocolate cookies
To form Minnie, we used 1- 8in pan and 2-4in (or so) springform pans. To get the face "just so" we blew up a picture of Minnie, printed it and cut out the features. Then we used a toothpick to trace around so we would know where to ice the cake. For the bow I used leftover ribbon from the Minnie crafts and stuck it in the cake with a long twisty tie.

Mickey Chocolate Cookies

Mickey Knox Blocks (Jellow Jigglers)

I use Knox Gelatine instead of the Jello jiggler recipe. Also, this is why I refer to them as "knox blocks". The use of the gellatine makes the dessert much easier for little hands to hold, and I personally LOVE the texture but of course my mom has been making knox blocks for me for EVER! I used a small Mickey cookie cutter that I borrowed from a friend

Soda, water, and juice boxes

A lot of work, but again... I can't help myself, when I get a theme I tend to keep going with it.
