Minnie Mouse Present Cake
by Trinity Wood
This two tier fondant covered cake is decorated to look like Minnie is coming out of the top.
Minnie's head is a cookie decorated with flooded royal icing. The bow is fondant and added later.
The flowers and hearts are fondant and tylose on floral wires, inserted into chocolate filled straws and then inserted into the cake to prevent any nasty metal contamination in the cake. I piped royal icing onto them.
The hands (which I hated) are fondant with tylose with skewers inside to attach to the cake. If I did this again I would sculpt them rather than cut them out.
The little curly ribbon pieces are made by rolling and cutting strips of fondant and wrapping them around a straw til dry.
the flowers and diamond and other decoration on the cake is all fondant cut out and applied to the cake. Pearl dragees accented it.
