Did you know that today is Mickey Mouse's birthday? On November 18th, 1928, Mickey Mouse made his debut in the animated cartoon "Steamboat Willie" and became the mascot of The Walt Disney Company. Mickey went on to appear in over 130 films and in 1978 he became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
I have some other Mickey cookies that I'd like to make too, but I didn't have a chance for the others yet. However, I did get a chance to make these Mickey hat cookies for my friends at CheapCookieCutters.com. I used their large red Mickey cookie cutter which you can purchase by clicking here. You can order it in 5" like mine or 4" or even 2".
I tried out a few different fonts. The top two that say Karrie and Chris were both in Monotype Corsiva and the bottom left that says Cristin is in a Disney font and the bottom right that says Nick is using Freehand 591 font. Which font is your favorite for the Mickey hats?
Here's how... for the Mickey hats, I used my Mickey cookie cutter and before I baked them, I used the bottom of the cutter to cut out the bottom section of the mickey head to create a hat like the ones that they sell at Disneyland. Then I used some Royal Icing to write Karrie & Chris (owners of CheapCookieCutters.com) on the hats. Thanks for the great idea Chris!
Next up lots of baby shower cookies for a friend.
