Easy Mickey Mouse Cake
As you know by now, I started dabbling in cake baking & decorating during my (limited) leisure time. Having baked hubby his birthday cake, I decided to get Bryan his very first mommy-baked cake as well!
1st birthday = barney 3D cake
2nd birthday = Blues Clues cake
3rd birthday = what else! Mickey Mouse lor!
Limited baking tools do not deter one from baking a cute cake I guess. Of couse as usual, I only own the basics like a round or a square pan. Nothing fancy. And no Mickey Mouse cake moulds from Wilton either. So I used the cover of Bryan's milk tin to imprint the round head and then used 2 drinking classes to imprint the ears on the icing **wide smile** Next, I just had to mix the icing with the right colors and piped my way through!
And guess what I used to make sure I had the right size for the wordings "BRYAN"? Guess. Guess. Ok let me tell ya, I used his magnet alphabets that had letterings from A-Z ... huahahahaha. I washed it clean and wiped it dry. Then I imprint the magnet onto the icing again to give me a guide and piped it with colored icing lor. Creative leh!
I also baked him 16 cuppies for the birthday party for April kids in his kindy. And he was the only one with mommy-baked cakes. The rest was store bought. I was beaming with pride but probably the teachers would be saying .. aiyoh this mommy so kiam siap! Who cares!
