This cake is for the coolest 5 year old girl I know who about a month ago said that she had been waiting for a Mickey Mouse cake for "all of her birthdays". I was happy to help out with that one! And this cake was so much fun to make!
The cake that was my inspiration had only a black outline of Mickey but I felt it was better to try to make Mickey "real" rather than abstract. I'm happy with how he turned out although I didn't get the face quite right.
I can't believe Naima is 5 years old already - how time flies! The cake was topped with a huge "5" made with red gumpaste. I love the little Mickey heads on the top tier too and the ribbon I found for this cake couldn't have been any more perfect in my opinion.
I'm off to drive this cake to Seattle for the party - hope it makes it in one piece and that the border guard doesn't stick his finger in the side of this one to make sure it's really cake!
Happy Birthday Naima!! I hope your Mickey cake was worth the wait :)
