I used Wilton’s Mickey Mouse cake pan to create this cake for my son Mason’s third birthday. To help get the white icing in the in between spots to go on better, I thinned it with a little water and warmed it slightly.
I also used a baby spoon with cooking spray on it to help smooth down places like his mouth and eyes. Whenever I’m doing a cake with red and/or black icing, I usually buy Wilton’s tubes of the colored icing to use on these spots because these colors are the hardest to tint. I didn’t want Mickey to have pink shorts!
I did the border in chocolate icing because I had run out of the buttercream, but it turned out to be a great hit because everyone wanted a piece with some chocolate on it. When it was time for the birthday boy to blow out the candles, I placed a Mickey Mouse shaped birthday candle on Mickey’s foot with a two other bright twirly candles.
