m-i-n-n-i-e -- m-o-u-s-e!!

2nd order for the day! Phew!
This order was for a birthday girl who's turning 1. The theme of her birthday party is Minnie Mouse, so of course everything has to be pink with white polkadots!

First up are 20 cupcakes (10 vanilla and 10 chocolate-flavoured) that were topped with pink icing. I made black fondant ears and pink bows beforehand to let them dry and harden.

  The 8" round two-tiered cake stands about 4" tall (without the cake topper). It's covered in pink fondant with white fondant dots. I piped a shell border on the bottom and laced with cake board with pink ribbon. The cake topper is a Disney hat with the birthday girl's name piped on it using pink icing. The hat was a challenge to make because it takes a few days to dry and harden, and the ears had to be stabilized. The big pink bow on top was made separately (also days in advance) with equal parts fondant and gumpaste to allow it to harden faster.

This was a fun cake to make because it's so different from what I have done in the past. I hope I get a chance to make more cake toppers so I can get better at it!
