Hello everyone, I`m new to your forum and was wondering if anybody has ever made the Mickey Mouse characters out of modelling paste. I`ve been asked to do this for my granddaughters first birthday cake am new to modelling. Any help would be appreciated.

Its not perfect but I was pleased with the end result, all the figurines are edible but the house was a dummy cake.

Here are a couple real simple Mickey cakes:

Just make a stencil, cut it out and take a toothpick to the frosting to make an outline... this makes an easy guide. Then, just fill it in! thumbs_up.gif
