Mickey’s First Birthday!

Okay, so of course you know it’s not actually Mickey’s first birthday, but it is my first post in a looonnnnggg time.  Between moving, starting a new job, traveling for that new job…oh, and catching whatever sickness is going around, it’s was pretty hectic at the end of 2012.  Since my blog resolution for 2013 is to do better, here I am…trying to do better.  

In 2012 I made a cake for a little boy turning one-year-old.  His party was Mickey-themed and the cake was designed based on the decor of the party.  Of course I had to add a few of my own elements.  😉 

Mickey Cake 3

The cake is covered in buttercream and decorated with fondant.  The Mickey figure is made out of gumpaste, and I’m pretty proud of how he turned out.  When I tried to make a standing Mickey figure for a previous cake I failed (as evidenced below).  The lesson I learned:  prep early.  Making standing fondant/gumpaste figures the day before the cake is due does not make for desired — or sturdy — results. 


My other 2013 blog resolution: take better photos.
