Hi all! I have friend who wants a Mickey cake that she saw in the Wilton 2005 yearbook. It is a Mickey jumping out of 2 presents. The problem that I am having is that I would need the pan to make the chocolate mold for his head...which I don't have, and apparently has been retired! Does anyone know where I could get one of these, or any ideas on how to make the head? It is for next weekend so I am not sure if fondant/gumpaste would be dry by then? I did find some on ebay but they want to rake me over the coals for them. Normally I don't use the character pans, just free hand characters if I make them. Any suggestions out there? Here is a pic of the cake THANKS!
Have you looked on ebay?? They have alot of the retired pans.
I didn't check the dimensions...the above would work though, if you only filled the face and ears areas.
OMG! Have you checked on the prices of those MM pans??????
If I weren't going to be using it every day, I'd ether make one using a chocolate transfer method or hand mold one using fondant/gumpaste mixture or modeling chocolate.
Or a giant cookie...anything before paying that much for a pan I would probably never use again.
How about modelling Mickey with Rice Krispy Treat and cover in fondant?
