Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake

When I first decided to make this Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday, I was a bit nervous. I am not exactly "crafty". But, I knew how much she loved the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, & I always enjoy a challenge, so I thought, why not try it?

The cake was actually surprisingly easy to make! I made the hand, foot, slide, head, & ears a few days before hand. To make the hand, I used a Styrofoam ball then used lollipop sticks covered in aluminum foil (to make them thicker) for the fingers. I stuck the fingers into the ball, covered it in white fondant and voila!

Next, I shaped aluminum foil into a foot shape. I covered that in yellow fondant. Both the arm & the leg are portions of paper towel rolls covered in black fondant. The head & ears are simply Styrofoam balls spray painted black (I used the same size balls for the ears & the hand).

The "upslide" was the tricky part - I had read that people used flexible tubing, but I could not find any. I finally settled on buying a foam ring for making wreaths. I cut the ring in half, carved out the uncovered portion of the slide at the bottom, and covered it in blue fondant. I also used a portion of the foam ring to make a "leg" to support the slide.

The rest of the cake was even simpler! I made 2 13X9 rectangular cakes for the grass & covered them in green frosting. I baked a cake in a round glass bowl (be sure to check that your bowl is oven safe!) for the actual clubhouse. This I frosted red. Next, I put it all together. For the finishing touch I added all the characters. . .they are from the package of Mickey Mouse confetti from our local party store.

My daughter was so excited with the cake! I am glad that I made it!

wonderful idea!! we will be doing something similar for our child but I'm going to experiment with rice crispy treats rather than the foil to make most of the cake "edible" (minus the back mickey portion). yours turned out great though - thanks for posting!

Great Job!

Rice Krispies work for all of the parts that stick up. I just made this cake for my 2 year old cousin. He loved it!

Where did you buy the fondant? Or did you make it yourself? I really want to try this cake- but am nervous about using fondant
