On this dreary, snowy, rainy Saturday in January we whipped up some excitement by making a Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Cake.
My kids love Rice Krispie squares but I don’t particularly care for purchasing them. First of all they are so expensive when they are prepackaged and so not expensive when we take the time to make them ourselves. Second – who needs all those extra preservatives?
I am not a big fan of making a Rice Krispie square even sweeter by adding frosting to it but this is a fun project and the kids certainly love the extra sweetness.
To make this you need a Mickey Mouse Cake Pan (13 inch).
I sprayed the pan with Pam so I could easily remove the Rice Krispie mixture (your basic recipe right off the Rice Krispie box) after it cools.
Press the Rice Krispie mixture firmly and flat into the pan – let it cool, pop out onto your surface – I have a plastic pad for mine.
Make your buttercream frosting according to the instructions on the back of the Mickey Mouse sheet. I can tell you I didn’t even have to do the face and I had to make twice what they said I needed. When I make it as an actual cake I will have to make a triple batch.
Trace out the areas you need to then fill in with the appropriate tips. I traced with a straight tip but I used a triple star for filling in.
And just keep on going until you are done!
