Mini bundt cakes might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Disney World, but you can find some seriously good ones in the parks! And, since Halloween is one of my absolute favorite times to visit Disney, I figured I’d combine the two together. The result? This delicious (and adorable!) Minnie Mouse Halloween Bundt Cake recipe!

I’m all about a tasty Disney treat (just check out my Honey Bee ‘Winnie The Pooh’ Cupcakes for more proof!), but they’re rarely gluten-free.
So, I set out to create a Halloween bundt cake that everyone can enjoy, and — I’ve got to admit — I totally nailed it. Your friends won’t even know that they’re eating something that wasn’t made with gluten!
These Minnie Mouse bundt cakes are made with an almond flour muffin mix, sweet cream butter, cute fondant decor, and colorful frosting.
So, get ready to spend some time in the kitchen creating these Halloween beauties!
This recipe is perfect for those who are:
Note: I do offer tips on how to make this dairy-free, tree-nut, and egg-free below.
✨ Baking tips
- Use some of the powdered sugar to prevent the fondant from sticking to the cutting board and bow mold. It will make cutting out the Minnie ears and bows much easier!
- Prep the Minnie Mouse fondant bows the night before you plan to bake the bundt cakes. They need to sit out overnight to set and create the perfect Halloween bundt cake topper.
- Be careful not to overfill the mini bundt pan! You only want to fill them about 3/4ths of the way full.
- Completely cool the mini bundt cakes before removing them from the pan and frosting. This will ensure that your decorations don’t slide right off!
How to decorate your Minnie Mouse Halloween bundt cake
Once you’ve made your mini bundt cakes following the baking instructions and let them cool, it’s time to start frosting and giving them their Halloween Minnie Mouse look!
First, follow all the instructions to make the neon green frosting and chocolate frosting.
Tip: You want the consistency of the neon green frosting to be like lava so that it pours over the mini bundt cake to create those spider-like stripes.
Carefully pipe the neon green frosting onto the bundt cake and add some sprinkles. You’ll want to pause here to let the frosting harden a little and then add a dollop of chocolate frosting in the center.
The last step is to add your Minnie Ears and bow to complete your Halloween Bundt Cake!
Here are the most common questions I get any time I share this Minnie Mouse Halloween Bundt Cake recipe. If you have any more questions, drop them for me in the comments below or DM me on Instagram!
How do I make this Halloween bundt cake recipe dairy-free?
You’ll just need to substitute a few ingredients when making the mini bundt cake and frosting. Look for vegan butter to replace the sweet cream butter and choose a plant-based milk for the bundt cake batter.
Also, double-check that the pre-made vanilla frosting you purchase is also dairy-free!
Can I use a different kind of cake mix?
Absolutely! I chose the Simple Mills Almond Flour Baking Mix Chocolate Muffin & Cake Mix to make this gluten-free, but you can use any chocolate muffin and cake mix of your choosing. Just note that the flavor may change slightly based on what brand you use.
What can I substitute for the eggs?
In most cake recipes, you can replace eggs with 1/4 cup applesauce. So for this one, you’d use 3/4 cups of applesauce in the bundt cake batter.
