My daughter was turning five and wanted to be Chef’s, like in Ratatouille so I came up with the only cake that a couple of Chef rats would love, a cheese cake in a form of a big wedge of Cheese. I got the characters at a bakery. I baked three round yellow layer cakes and trimmed them on two sides to make a triangle. If I were to do it again I would use two layers as it was rather large to slice into small pieces.
Then I stacked and iced them in a nice Cheesy yellow. It was a huge hit! I had ordered paper chefs hats on-line and made aprons for all the kids to personalize. We had a great time!
For this cheese cake I used an eight inch round cake and cut a "slice" out. I frosted it with tinted buttercream icing using Wiltons golden yellow icing color. I made the holes by making "dents" with the bottom of measuring spoons and painted them a darker golden yellow with icing color mixed with some water.
I used fondant to make the mice. I bought the pre made Wiltons fondant and shaped it to look like a mouse body. I tinted a little bit pink and used that for the tails and face.
