Oh Minnie Mouse...hands down my favorite of the classic Disney characters. I have photos of my first meeting with her at three in Disney World and then again many years later when although of course while it was not nearly as magical, she was still my favorite.
Based on my eight and under friends' interests these days, the Disney princesses seem to be giving Miss Minnie a run for her money. (Maybe her costume change to pink will assist in getting back that fan base?!) Anyway, when a friend asked me to make Minnie-themed cookies for her daughter's birthday party recently, I was happy to hear that MM is still popular. Since I already had done a Mickey collection, I was looking forward to making some for his leading lady.
You should have seen the matching cake the birthday girl's mom made - it was impressive! I don't think I will try to tackle that until I am hosting my own Minnie Mouse party some day.
Thank you Niki!
