My flatmate’s sister had her baby shower recently and I made a Mickey Mouse cake for the party! It was similar to the Minnie Mouse Cake I’d made previously. Except this time round I had the benefit of experience on my side!
Lesson 1 – The cake will not support it’s own weight. It does need help. Therefore something needs to be used to prop up the centre of the bottom tier to make sure Mickey does not collapse in on himself.
Lesson 2 – This was a lesson that occured to me as I was about to glue on the stars. With my egg white and icing sugar “glue”. Pregnant women should not have raw egg. Butter cream also works. Use buttercream.
Mickey’s feet got a bit of a bashing in transit… He was a bit cut up, but he got over it!
The little cupcakes were made by my flatmate Rachel, she used some of the leftover yellow fondant and some milk chocolate buttons!
