This is a long pending post and finally making it to the blog. I made this for my second daughter’s birthday last August. I always plan ahead for kids’ birthdays and decide what cake to make and start searching for designs, ideas from the internet. My kids demanded Mickey mouse or Minnie mouse cake. After a lot of research, finally decided to go with a simple Minnie mouse cake without fondants.

I made a big cake and cut it in the shape of a Minnie mouse. Due to lockdown, could not get the correct colors for the cake. Everything was out of stock and no online delivery at that time. So managed with colors I had in hand. It indeed turned out good with shape and taste.  Check out other varieties I made in my birthday party platter

Notes

You can use any cake recipe as base.

You can use whipped cream frosting instead of buttercream frosting.

If you are baking in oven, preheat the oven to 180°C for ten minutes and bake in the same temperature for 45-50 minutes till toothpick inserted comes out clean.

If the buttercream frosting is too thick, you can add few drops of milk to adjust the consistency.

Print of the picture helped me to get the exact shape. If you are good at drawing you can draw yourself too.

According to the size of the tin, choose the picture size.= or vice versa.

I find this method easier than making two cake and then joining.

If you want you can cut the cake and apply cream in the layers.

In our home, plain cakes are preferred than cream cakes. So I just used cream only for decoration and skipped for layers.
