We are volunteers with the Icing Smiles organization. We just had the opportunity to make a 6th birthday cake for a sweet birthday girl. The family wasn’t picky, they just wanted Minnie Mouse on the cake. We aren’t exactly angels when it comes to following copyright law, but we don’t dare to mess with Disney. But since this cake was a donation with no charge to the family, we are allowed to recreate copyrighted characters. At least when we checked with the Icing Smiles folks and their lawyers they said it was okay to make these cakes.

The Minnie Mouse was the most time consuming part of the cake. I’m not proud to say it took me about eight hours. I don’t make figures very well, so I’m slow and sometimes I have to “redo”. This Minnie had three sets of ears and two bows. I used Choco-pan modeling chocolate just for the face because it’s great for sculpting. I’m sorry, but it’s too soft for other things that I use homemade modeling chocolate. I’m happy that she looks like Minnie and not a generic version, but I think I could do better next time. I also forgot to put on her blush.

You made an adorable cake! Minnie would be proud. You are a* suberb* cake artist.

So colourful and bright. Love it xx I think you did a fantastic job. We’re all so critical of our own work. We look too hard sometimes when you think how many seconds it takes to demolish our hard work. But we love it so we’ll always think we can do better. xx
