How many birthday parties have you ever been to where someone brought a Mickey Mouse cake to your party? I don't think I have. That is probably the one birthday that I will never celebrate. It may be because I am afraid that the child I would have to attend will find out how well the Mickey Mouse cake is made and become too embarrassed to ask for a second one. If that is what you fear, I understand completely.
But for others, it may be because they love Mickey Mouse and want to share their love of this Disney cartoon character with their friends and family. If that is you, then you can make your own Mickey Mouse cake pan. You can easily do this with a few simple instructions and a good cake pan. And if you are going to do this, you need to start with a good cake pan.
Start by making a square, round cake pan. You can choose any size for this cake pan. Make sure that the cake pan is not too big, or you will have an uncomfortable-looking cake. But also be sure that the cake pan is not too small. A small cake pan may give the appearance of crumbliness, which does not look very appealing to me.
Next, you will need to gather some of your favorite Disney characters. For example, you can use a couple of brownies and a handful of cupcakes to draw on the cake with a brown icing. You can do this all over the eyes, along the bottom of the nose, and around the smile lines on the face, and anywhere else you want a happy mouse outline. Once you have done all of this drawing, you will need to assemble the rest of the food coloring and other supplies.
You are going to need to assemble the rest of the cake items, and you will want to make sure that you have enough of everything. Most of the Mickey Mouse cake toppers are simply frosted cups and circles, so you will not have to worry about an assortment of different items. However, if you have a mix of different colors of frosting, you might want to keep a piece of each on hand, in case you run into trouble while preparing the cake. Otherwise, you can use brown sugar and white sugar to make your own Mickey Mouse frosting.
If you do choose to use a combination of brown and white frosting, then you will also need to buy some Mickey Mouse ears. Make sure that you do not buy too many ears, as they may look a bit excessive. You can find ears at any craft store, although I would suggest that you shop for them online. You will also be able to find plenty of other Disney decorations to liven up your mouse cake submitted. Things like snowmen, snowflakes, and other designs that are related to Disney are easy to find.
One thing that you might consider is adding a border to your Mickey Mouse cake topper. While it might sound silly, it is something that a lot of people love to do. It can be very easy to use the frosting as the base for the border, and then paint in any design or color that you choose. Another option is to use your fondant in place of the frosting, and to stitch or glue a variety of things along the border. This idea is great for making the cake look more decorated and also makes it easier to find anything that everyone loves on the cake. Fondant is also inexpensive, so if you do not feel comfortable making a border, then this is a good option to go with.
There are a lot of different things that you can do to your Mickey Mouse cake topper, but it is really just a matter of finding the decorations that you like the best. The ears are an easy way to accessorize and will go nicely with virtually any other design idea. A simple design with black frosting are all that's needed, and then you can add in anything else that your heart desires. If you have a bunch of balloons, stars, hearts, buttons, and more, then this would be a great place to put them. With so many options to choose from, there is no limit to how much thought you want to put into your Mickey Mouse cake topper.
