This weekend we celebrated my niece’s 2nd birthday! She’s a big Minnie Mouse fan so that was the party theme. And my job, of course, was to create her a cake to go with it. This cake is made up of 10″ and 8″ tiers. The mouse “hat” is cake baked in a Wilton ball pan (just baked one side). I then covered it in fondant. The ears are made of a fondant/gumpaste blend, as is the bow.
