Mickey Mouse Cake


Mr. Mickey is a pretty popular guy around here. My little Soph was dying to eat this cake while I was making it. Too bad for her, it was for a cute little 1-year-old.


The hat and shoes were sculpted out of rice cereal treats. And I bought the black and red fondant at WalMart, because it’s really difficult to get a good TRUE red/ black fondant when you make it yourself, without adding the entire bottle of red food gel. It was quite convenient, and I’m tempted to buy fondant more often. It is more expensive though, and usually doesn’t taste as good as homemade.

If you want to make your own fondant, I have a great recipe here. And here are some more tips for baking your own cake!



  1. So pretty! I just threw a Minnie Mouse party last weekend, but didn't have this cute cake. I bought some fondant as well to make some cute bows (which those silicone molds are fabulous!) for the cake pops, which turned out pretty good.

  2. Oh that looks just fabulous you must be very proud of yourself. Thanks for sharing this with us at #AnythingGoes it is inspiring me for my grandchild's birthday.

  3. This cake turned out so well. It's adorable and looks really good. Thanks for sharing it with us.
