This was my first outside order that wasn’t a family member. She asked for a Minnie Mouse birthday cake so this is what I came up with. It’s a chocolate cake with a strawberry preserve filling and then filled and covered with a simple butter cream frosting. Then it’s all covered with home made marshmallow fondant. Minnie Mouse was hand made using the same marshmallow fondant with tylose powder added to make gum paste.
I did some research and finally found a tutorial on how to make Minnie. It’s a tutorial just using pictures, but I think she turned out pretty good. This cake was made using 8″ cake pans. Finished cake measured about 5 inches tall. I also made cupcakes to match. Everyone at the party just loved the look of the cake. They gave rave reviews of the taste as well.
