It’s Friday, it’s Friday and I have lots and lots of things to do! But for now, I’m going to tell you about this Pink Ombre Minnie Mouse Cake!
This cake was 5 layers of white cake tinted different shades of pink so that the outside matched the inside… sort of like the Ombre Ruffles Princess cake… remember?
Here’s a picture I took (in very bad lighting) of the inside of the cake before decorating…
Isn’t that pretty cool? I wish I had a picture of it cut, but you’ll just have to imagine! Oh, and the cakes were done in 9″ round pans.
The ears were made ahead of time. For those, I mixed Tylose into the fondant, rolled it out and cut the circles. Then I let them dry for a couple of days. I “glued” lollipop sticks to the back of the ears with sugar glue then put strips of fondant over them to secure them.
I made the bow with gum paste so it would dry hard and stand up… easy-peasy!
For Miah’s name on the front, I used my Funky Alphabet cutters, then laid the letters on white fondant and used an Xacto knife to cut out a background. I made the “2″ by hand and tried to match the fondant!
And that’s it… I don’t think there’s anything else to tell you about this cake!
Sooo, do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave me a comment and I’ll answer and help out if I can!
