I have had my DT mini for about 2 months. I have found that I enjoy it more with clipless pedals (an inexpensive set off my recumbent), but they need to be removed to get it to fold. I have been considering a set of MKS cubes through Seldon Brown's site http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/pedals.html#cube. Does anyone have any experience with these or other suggestions.

None, but they look very cool. Go for it, and give us a product review :-)
I have two sets of the clipless, and two other sets of EZ pedals (one set came with my MU SL - that I have now attached plastic toe clips to, another is a plain set of platforms for toodling around on my Brompton.)
They work pretty much as advertised. The only downside is you have to keep the pedal some where when you take it off. For the clipless, you can often stick it in your seat bag. For the others... kind of a hassle vs. a folding platform.
I think the ideal folding bike pedal would be a folding pedal with SPD on one side, and platform on the other, assuming you could engineer a locking mechanism, etc. Nothing seems to exist like that yet. Someone get on it!
I also received the MKS AR-2 quick release pedals with my Mu SL. The quick release is pretty slick. I'd think the clipless ones would be even easier to take off and store in your pocket, but I'm not sure how often you'd end up doing that.
I went ahead and purchased some regular clipless pedals. They seem to be small enough and hardly take up any space.
