The Mickey Mouse Club was a popular television show among the youngsters of the 1950’s. Boys and girls called Mouseketeers sang and danced while wearing Mickey Mouse ears and turtlenecks with their names emblazoned. Those mouse ears have made a resurgence and Mickey’s girlfriend, Minnie Mouse is as popular as ever.

Did you know Minnie’s real name is Minerva? 
Minnie is distinctive with her polka dot dress, matching bow and bright yellow shoes.

Minnie was the party theme for a special girl turning two. The toddler of honor, my grand niece wore her pink tutu and mouse ears while carrying a stuffed Minnie in each arm, one pink and the other red. Her mini pals wore their tutus and mouse ears too. These hipsters were just too cute for words. At the special time she blew out her candles and you guessed it … a Minnie cake!  It was surely a polka-dotted affair for this darling toddler. 

These Bow Cookies were part of the fun. The use of the butterfly cutter as Minnie’s bow is the creative idea of Callye at Sweet Sugarbelle, seen in these Minnie Bow Cookies.
