With Mickeys birthday fast approaching, I had to whip up a few quick desserts to fill our tummies before we go out boozin’.  What better to incorporate into the dessert than his two favorite things: gummy bears and alcohol.  (Just kidding…kind of)

To make these adorable cupcakes, start out by baking your cupcakes with your favorite recipe or your friendly neighbor, Betty Crocker. {My BFF when I’m in a pinch}

Next–decorate as desired.  A go-to for me is the Wilton’s brand frosting which comes with 4 tips that you can reuse!  ($3.99)  Simple designs that almost look profesh!

Drunken Gummies:

image

Start by pouring gummies into a bowl

Add desired liquor.  Vodka works best– I chose SkinnyGirl Tangerine Vodka.  Make sure the vodka completely covers gummies.

Cover bowl with saran wrap and soak overnight.
Agitate a few time so that all the gummies absorb the vodka goodness.  If you experience them getting stuck together, don’t worry!  Simply mix them up with a spoon.

Once you’ve let them soak overnight, they are ready to serve!  After decorating your cupcakes with your Drunken Gummies, put the leftovers in little plastic cups or a small bowl with a spoon for your guests!
