It’s a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake!
But I’ll get to that in a minute. This week has been a busy, busy week! Honestly, about 5 weeks ago I seriously cut my back my personal limit on cake orders (no more than 3-4 per weekend) so I could focus more on homeschooling my kiddos and keeping my house
not looking like a bomb blew up clean.
But somehow – this week slipped through the cracks of “my limit” and I took way too many orders. Well, not “way too many” in a way that I can’t do them – I used to average 5-8 cakes (sometimes 10) per weekend. But “way too many” to maintain getting enough sleep, keeping my house semi-clean, keeping my kids on track with their schoolwork, and, oh yeah, my sanity!
Since I knew this week was coming, over the weekend I wrote and scheduled ahead a couple of blog posts… like the How to Build a Rocket Ship Cake Tutorial and the recipe for Broccoli, Rice & Cheese Casserole. And then on Monday I made the Sugar-Free Pineapple Lush cake and went ahead an took pics and made notes to write it up too! And on Tuesday, I made the impromptu decision to do a giveaway!
I was doing good… or so I thought. Then on Tuesday night, it hit me! I had (have) 2 wedding cakes, 2 groom’s cakes, 2 birthday cakes, and 48 cupcakes. I needed to make 30+ pounds of marshmallow fondant. And who knows how much buttercream. And other weird things, like fins and whiskers for a catfish cake and loops for bows and spiral binding for a book cake.
Somewhere in the midst of that, I panicked. I got a migraine. I got some serious neck/shoulder pain (my #1 symptom of stress), and I sort of fell apart.
Then I decided I needed to suck it up and get busy. I mean, because really… what other choice did I have? I also decided that I needed to decide what (if any) other blog posts I was going to write for the week and get them done, because after Tuesday… it was all uphill and I was going to be too busy to write!!
So I looked over what I had already posted and had planned to post… and realized there wasn’t a decorated cake on the list this week. So here it is… your decorated cake for the week!
It’s a simple, but fun Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cake (I’ve already said that, huh?). So, here are a few details if you want to make this cake…
For the ears, I mixed lots of Tylose into some Satin Ice Black Vanilla fondant, then I rolled it out thin and used a 3″ round cutter to cut them out. I let them dry for 24-48 hours, then I used Tylose glue (tylose plus water to form a sticky edible glue) to “glue” craft sticks to the back of the ears. I covered them with a narrow trip of fondant and let them dry some more, then I just pushed the bottom of the sticks into the cake!
