Minnie Mouse cookies are cute, fun, and perfectly sweet. It’s a dream for many young girls to have a Minnie Mouse birthday party theme and these sugar cookies are the perfect addition.

To make Minnie’s bow and dress, you will use a buttercream technique that isn’t used on cookies too often. That being said, it is used for decorating buttercream cakes all the time.

This buttercream technique will result in a similar appearance to royal icing cookies that use the wet-on-wet decorating technique.

So without further ado, let’s jump into these cute Minnie Mouse cookies!
