Mickey Inspired 2 Tier Cake

I am slowly venturing into the world of fondant cakes.   Many moons ago before I started Confections, I did bake a 2 tier Toy Story cake for a friend of mine.  It was a disaster in my eye but no choice, got to deliver the cake that morning!  I felt sooo bad that I didnt touch fondant for more a year.

Recently I took up the challenge again cos you know why .. I tried promoting my buttercream cakes but this customer still prefer fondant covered cakes cos she said she never tried eating fondant cakes before ... wuahahaha.   So I challenged myself and came up with this mickey inspired cake.    Credit to original designer but I tweaked it a little since customer prefer this design.

In order not to take the risk, I invested in using Satin Ice Fondant which costs a bomb!   But its ok.   I am not here to make huge profits from my cakes.  Im happy with the fact that I get to do something I truly enjoy.  And also happy to challenge myself slowly, step by step and see myself progressing in this field.   Money is not the sole motivator here but well .... its definitely a reinforcer, hahaha!!

Baked fresh and worked till late at night, ready in time to delivery next morning.  Cake base was vanilla butter with bottom tier 8" and top tier 6".   Forgot to weight the whole cake but I reckon would have been more than 3kg.  

Will I take on another fondant cake request in the near future?   Bring it on!    Love working with it now ;)
