I'm planning a Mickey Mouse cake for my son. I'm undecided whether I'm going to just make the ears for the top of the cake, or use fondant to make a little Mickey. Does anyone have any tips, info, on how to make this?
If you were doing the ears, I would use gumpaste and do it as far in advance as possible to give it lots of dry time. If you decide to sculpt, I like to use MMF with Tylose powder mixed in. HTH
I made some mickey and friends figures from modeling chocolate a few months ago. I used a tutorial book that is for polymer clay, it really helped a bunch. It was free to download, here's the link:
I have done a couple of the mickey mouse clubhouse and used my small half ball pan to make the head then covered it with MMF. The ears I did a few days before in gumpaste. The key to the ears was making sure they had enough time to dry and harden. Good luck
Here is the one I did;
Thank you so much Leafo!
This is why I love cake central all the sharing and support..from fellow Cakers..I will totally frequent the website you shared. Happy caking everyone
May not be what you had in mind, but I've done Mickey and Toodles (shhh, don't tell Disney!) with a 10 in. round for his face and 2 6 in. rounds for his ears. The sizes are just about perfect in proportion, and it was really easy! I took my pics down for fear of the Disney police...
