Minnie Mouse Fondant Cake How-to
Yoo-hoo! Here's how to create the super-sweet Minnie Mouse fondant cake featured in our Minnie Mouse Party Ideas Guide and Girls Birthday Cake Ideas Guide.
- 1 two-layer cake
- Buttercream icing mix
- 2 boxes pre-rolled white fondant (total 72 oz.)
- Black icing color
- Rose icing color
- Minnie Mouse candle
- Pink candy stripe birthday candles
- Black glitter birthday candles
- Skinny coil birthday candles
- Mickey Mouse cookie cutter set
- Fondant roller
- Fondant smoother
- Wilton decorating tips #16 and #3
- Decorating bags and coupler
- Pizza cutter or paring knife
- Round fondant cutters
- Decorating time, yay! First prepare your cake for the fondant by icing it with a layer of buttercream icing.
- To create a pretty pink fondant, knead white fondant until soft. Use a toothpick to dot rose icing color onto the fondant and knead until the color is evenly distributed.
- Roll out the pink fondant and smooth with a fondant smoother. Trim off excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife.
- To create the Minnie Mouse ears, use a small ball of white fondant from your second box. Tint with black icing color. Roll out the ball and use a Mickey Mouse ears cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. To attach to the cake, dab with water.
- For Minnie's bow, use rose icing color to create a small ball of lighter pink fondant. Roll out and cut small strips and form them into a bow. Use royal icing to "glue" the bow to the cake. Pipe on the little white polka dots with white buttercream icing and a decorating bag with a round tip.
- For the large white polka dots, roll out a small ball of white fondant from your second box. Use a paring knife to cut out the circles free hand or use a small round cookie cutter. Dab with water to attach.
- To pipe the decorative border at the bottom of the cake, use pink-tinted buttercream icing and a #16 star-shaped tip.
- The finishing touches: Make it snazzy with oodles of candles, a black platter and Minnie-approved plates and napkins!
