Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

OK, so it's been a long time since I've updated. I've still got lots of cakes to share (including more first birthday cakes), but today let's cover something a little different.

So, who's the leader of the club that's made for you and me?

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E! This is the Bakery Crafts Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake kit. The cakes are cover with fondant and the mouse ears are fondant cut outs. I'm actually not a big fan of fondant - but it's useful at times.

Next up, Mickey's best girl, Minnie. I've done a few Minnie cakes, and she's always great fun to draw.

The above image is a little dark, but here's Minnie presenting a birthday cake. The top border is accented by heart sprinkles from the Disney Princess sprinkle set from Wilton. Minnie was hand drawn.

 Next is Minnie from the Wilton Mickey cake pan (available here: or at your local craft store). Her bow was crafted from fondant (See? I told you it was useful).

The final Minnie cake is a full body Minnie. She was hand drawn and is accentuated by lovely little buttercream daisies. And speaking of Daisy:

The final cake for today is Minnie's good friend Daisy. I was hesitant to do this cake. I was having flash backs of my childhood trying to draw the duck beak. I could never get the beaks right! But after 25 years, I guess I've managed to learn how. I watched some tutorials on YouTube and practiced, practiced, practiced. I think it turned out cute, so I'm happy with it.

That's it for today. See you real soon!
