Here is the Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake that I made for my son Alex. He helped to design the cake. He wanted Mickey, Pluto and Minnie. He also wanted a tree like on the show. The tree has little stars and cherries as per the birthday boy’s request. The characters are all hand modeled from 50/50 fondant gumpaste mix. The cake were vanilla and chocolate layers and filled with vanilla buttercream and chocolate ganache. The tree is a styrofoam ball covered in modeling chocolate on a wooden dowel also covered by modeling chocolate.
