AHello. I am making a cake for a two year old girl birthday. I have been asked to make a standing up Minnie Mouse cake and really unsure of how to go about this as legs are so skinny (wish I as that prob LOL!)

The party also has a princessy theme so was thinking maybe using a Wilton princess dress pan and make minnie in a ball gown then maybe put this on top of another round cake to make up the servings. Does anyone know if there is a pick available fr this or would I have to make the minnie figure?

Also any other ideas on how to do this would be greatly appreciated xxx

you need to make a structure to hold it all up

 

some people use pvc pipe or copper tubing

 

if you are selling this it should be literally hundreds of dollars (pounds)

 

a two foot standing sculpture goes for about $800 give or take a few--serves 20-30

 

but if it's a minnie you are hitting the copyright brick wall too at 60mph er agh kilometers ;)

 

 a cake like this needs expertise out the whazoo
