I was asked to do a Mickey Mouse 1st birthday cake....here is the end result. This one was alot of fun to create. I love the simplicity of it. The bottom tier is a two layer marble cake, the second is a five layer, alternately- 3 marble and 2 dark chocolate cake layers....all filled and frosted with buttercream icing. The top "smash cake" was white pound cake (to support the weight of the ears).
The Mickey Mouse hat looks a bit distorted in the pic from the shadow, but in actuality, they were perfectly round.
