Mickey Mouse Cake



  • 2 - 10 in. cake rounds
  • Buttercream icing mix
  • Pre-rolled white fondant
  • Pre-rolled black fondant
  • Pre-rolled red, blue and yellow fondant (in set)


  • Mickey Mouse and other birthday candles
  • Happy Birthday toothpick candles
  • Sparkling candles
  • Number candle
  • Mickey Mouse cookie cutter set
  • Fondant roller
  • Fondant smoother

1) Ice cake

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

2) Cover cake with fondant

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) Create mouse silhouettes

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) Create borders and dots

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® – just "glue" them on with royal icing.

5) Attach borders and dots

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

6) Top with candles

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