M-O-U-S-E…Mickey Mouse (come on, sing it with me!). Ok, enough of that fun. On to the cake because that’s why you are really here, right?
So my oldest daughter turned 9 last week. For her actual party, she requested a Mickey Mouse cake. She really wanted to have her favorite cake which is strawberry but really wanted the outside to look like Mickey. So I suggested that we try chocolate and vanilla icing for the decorations. So I made 2 six-inch rounds and a 10-inch round for the ears and face. I tinted chocolate icing black and star-tipped the ears and top of Mickey’s head. I then star-tipped the face with vanilla icing. Then added black for the eyes, nose, and mouth with the star tip.
I tinted some vanilla buttercream red for his tongue. And since I didn’t really want to mess up all those stars by writing on his face, I just wrote “Happy Birthday Mazie” in the leftover red icing right onto the cake board that my husband made out of a card board box. I just put some foil over it to make it look nice!
By the way, just in case you were wondering, the chocolate icing tasted very much like dark chocolate with the strawberry cake! I’ve never paired the two before. I will probably do it again soon.
