I had made an Elmo cake for a friend and was then asked to make another one, a week before I was asked if I could do a Mickey Mouse instead! Panic stations, lots of sad looking Mickeys later and this was the end result.
This a double layered vanilla cake, filled with chocolate butter-cream. Mickey is fondant with added CMC powder to help him harden. The balloons are fondant hand rolled with a small circle and pushed onto a skewer. I left these to dry for around three days prior to making the cake. The circles were made with a small fondant punch, helps keeps the consistency of the circles.
I loved the simple colors of this cake. Mickey’s mouth was the hardest, it is so hard to make a cartoon character look like the actual thing.
