Minnie ears can be purchased online for your convenience at Birthday Express for $5 each.

You can purchase a customized cake from a specialty store that have Goofy and Minnie frosting or contain the action figure of the characters. You can also make homemade cookies and make frosting on top of each one resembling the characters.
In addition, if you have the spare amount, you can hire two guys that can dress up in a Goofy and Minnie costume to entertain the children during the party. One can even bring out the cake while you entice the guests in singing “Happy Birthday” for the celebrant.
