My daughter loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and fro her 2nd birthday made a Donald Duck cake for her from a pan shaped like Donald, which my mom used for me in 1984 for my 4th birthday! I decorated using butter icing and flower nozzle according to the colours of Donald Duck.
My brother-in-law bought a Mickey Mouse shaped pan for me to use for her 3rd birthday (yet to come), but she was so excited that I decided to maske it for a family get-to-gether. I decorated using butter icing and a flower nozzle. I coludnt get Mickey skin-tone ready icing so mixed liquid pink ans yellow food colouring and added with a dropper to plain butter icing till the correct colour was obtained. As black icing is difficult to do, used liquorice cables cut into discs for the nose and ears. Used gums for the eyes.
My grandchild just loves Minnie Mouse. She wanted me to make her a Minnie Mouse cake for her birthday this year (May 2012). I started by baking a 10, 9 and 6 inch round cake layer. I covered them with buttercream icing tinted pink. I placed some Minnie Mouse ears on top of the cake and added pink sprinkles on the cake as well. I located some small Minnie Mouse stuffed dolls at a local store that I used to place around the cake. She just loved this cake and didn't want us to cut the cake to serve. I enjoyed making this for her and as you can see her little face tells it all!
I made this cake for my daughter's 5th birthday as she insisted on a home-baked cake! I baked 2 10" round yellow cake sponges and cut them according to the minnie mouse face template i downloaded from the internet.
I made it double layer as was expecting many kids, I layered the middle with chocolate ganache icing.
I then did the icing using wilton's icing colours,using black, coppertone and pink. I decided to use finger to even the icing instead of the usual star tip 16.
The ribbon polka dots was done using readymade marzipan, and rolling it into dots.
I also made cake pops, with minnie mouse ribbons done with marzipan also.
I made 2- 10" and 2- 8" round cakes with buttercream frosting in between the layers. I covered them in pastel blue and pastel green fondant. I then cut out mickey mouse and gear fondant shapes out of fondant. For the border I used a mickey mouse scrapbook border. For the mickey mouse head, I covered styrofoam balls with black fondant. No shown in the picture, I used a metallic sharpie to write "Happy Birthday" on one ear and a "3" on the other ear and on the face I wrote my son'd name.
