So, I'm more than a little late in posting this, but that's generally true of all of my cakes. Back in July, my oldest son Joshua celebrated his 15th birthday.
We didn't have a big party as we usually do, but instead just had family over for a small get-together the following weekend.
But, we also had Vacation Bible School going on the week of his birthday and my kids wanted to make Joshua a cake to take to church that night. At some point in the planning, Noah (my 7 year old) said that he wanted to make Joshua a "cheese" cake.
You see, Joshua is kind of goofy (I say that in the most loving way) and he has a thing for cheese... he loves it alot. So much so that he asked for a "cheese" shirt for his birthday last year. You can see it here.
Anyway, so we set out to make him a "cheese" cake - and he wanted it Funfetti flavored. Noah was very specific about the design and at the last minute, he decided it also needed a mouse.
The mouse wasn't so much for Joshua, but rather as a trick for Daddy... because my husband is terrified of mice! Ha!
Anyway, I didn't do any of my "staged" pics of the cake and Joshua kept pretending to take a bite about every other shot... but I did manage to get on picture of it after it was cut...
And that's that.. I used 8" cake pans to bake the cake, then I cut out the wedge and covered both pieces in yellow marshmallow fondant. I used the ball tool from my gum paste stools set to push in the holes in the fondant (to make it look more cheesy) and the mouse was made of gray gum paste.
Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
