My son is 5 at the start of december, I asked him what cake he wants and he says he wants a mickey mouse cake like the ones I have already done...I wanted to do something different, his cake last year was my first cake and it was a two tier ty story cake so I feel like I want to do something different, I have done 3 mickey mouse cakes. he has also had mickey mouse cup cakes....

Now I know that its his choice but I want it to be really special for him and not one I have done before any ideas would be great thanks..

I would think you need to do another MM cake for him since that is what he wants. We have a friend whose 2 year old wanted a tire for his cake. My husband made a cake with one tire resting against the 2nd. He loved it. (Imagine a 2 year old wanting a black birthday cake). This year he turned 3, and what did he want......... a tire cake. His mom asked if it could be done again, but with a different design. So, he got 2 tires stacked on top of each other (in our photos) with a different tread. He loved it again.

So, the idea is a different form of a Mickey Mouse cake. How about a large Micky Mouse ears hat? Or ask him if he has something specific in mind he might like. Or maybe sit at the computer with him and do a search for MM cakes and ask him to point out which designs he likes and which ones he doesn't like?

Just some ideas....

yeah it will have to be a mm cake, I think I will sit him at computer and let him decide what he wants it like. I dont mind doing another mm cake just not the same design lol

Boy, I know just what you mean...... please just let me do a different design... lol

I think the two of you will have a ball just looking at cake ideas. Make some cocoa and make the search an event. I bet he'll remember that every bit as much as the cake itself. Nothing like special time spent with mom.

Have fun, and please be sure to let us know what you decide on, and post a picture.

I was just going through photos I have saved in my "favorite photos", and came across this MM cake. Thought I'd pass it along; I think it's adorable.

Yes, when a 5 yr old gets it in their head that they want a certain cake, there's no changing their mind! My son was adamant about having a cruise ship cake and I could not change his mind to something 'simpler'. I agree, just try to get him to pick something a bit different from what you have already done!
