Fun Treats to Celebrate Mickey Mouse’s Birthday

Mickey Mouse is turning 87 this year, folks! That’s right. Walt Disney’s most famous cartoon character is just 13 years short of turning 100.

To celebrate the only mouse who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, here are birthday treats made in his honor that you can easily re-create at home for Mickey Mouse’s birthday (or for anybody else’s).

The best way to celebrate Mickey’s birthday would be a trip to Disneyland. But if you don’t have the time or resources to make that happen, these recipes are your ticket to a taste of Disneyland.

A celebration is not complete without something to drink to toast the birthday celebrant. Here are two such drinks inspired by the Mouse himself.

There’s no shortage of inspired food and drink choices out there, but these are the best to celebrate Mickey’s 87th birthday.

Happy birthday, Mickey Mouse!
