Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake with Matching Cupcakes
Mom wanted a cake and cupcakes to match the Birthday girls’ outfit for the party, which was hot pink with zebra stripes, so this is what I came up with! All vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream filling, covered in fondant. Even the base of the Mousketeer Hat was a small cake as well :) The ears were gum paste, with a gum paste bow – all the zebra accents were hand painted. For the cupcakes, I simply added gum paste circles for the ears and a white fondant bow!
