Hello Minnie Mouse Cake

See. The cake.

(Ta-da!)

This was my first fondant cake, mostly just an attempt at something new for a Minnie Mouse themed birthday party, for a friend’s 1-year-old little girl — and my largest cake to date! (It was pretty huge.) 

The bow was a combination of fondant & gumpaste, color matched to the ribbon border, and made a few days in advance to harden. The ears (both the cake & the cupcakes) were made from black fondant — black really doesn’t taste very great, in case you were curious, so really is best only for smaller details. The cake itself was a white cake with a homemade strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream. It’s since been one of my favorite white cake recipes, with the density being perfect to hold up to the weight of a tiered cake, especially fondant.

The top tier was made in a 3-in round cake tin, intended to be easily removed as the baby’s “smash cake” — had only the baby only been interested in smashing the cake. Everything about this cake was edible except for the ribbon. 

And it was delicious. In case you were curious.
