Instructions:

  1. Serve a clubhouse-worthy cake! First prepare your cake for the fondant by icing it with a layer of buttercream icing.

  2. Roll out the white fondant, place over the cake and smooth the surface with a fondant smoother. Trim off excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife.

  3. To make the black mouse ears, roll out your black fondant and use a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter to cut the shapes. Set your mice aside on a flat surface.

  4. To create the red bands with yellow dots, roll out the red and yellow fondant. Use a small round cookie cutter or a paring knife to cut out the dots. Cut the red strips with a pizza cutter or paring knife. For another fun way to do the yellow spots, try yellow chocolate drops or Sixlets® (available at your local Party City store) – just "glue" them on with royal icing.

  5. Dab the fondant with water to adhere to the cake. Add the red strips then the yellow circles (or candy).

  6. Add a colorful array of birthday candles to complete this adorably Disney cake. The birthday boy will be thrilled to blow them out!
