This Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake Design was made with a 10 inch pan for the big circle and 6 inch pans for the ears. I frosted the cakes with buttercream then used modeling chocolate and fondant to cover. The black is the premade buttercream fondant from Michael’s marketed under Duff Goldman. This is the best tasting fondant I have ever tasted – but you pay a pretty penny for it.

The red is modeling chocolate that I made with one package of Wilton candy melts and 1/3 cup corn syrup. I will never buy fondant again, because the modeling chocolate tasted better and was easy to work with as well. The pant buttons are white fondant.

I borrowed the idea for this cake by combining some of the ideas I found on here. This was my first experience using modeling chocolate and fondant and I was pleasantly surprised on how easy it was – thanks for giving me the courage!
