So I'm making a cake for my friends daughters 4th birthday party.


I'm trying to decide what would be easier to make and also to transport.


Either a small cake with a Minnie Hat for the birthday girl (either cake or RKT..not sure which), and cupcakes for everyone else, or large round cake with the hat on it (iced, not fondant covered for the cake)...


For me, cupcakes are easier to transport I think...


I've also heard that making the hat out of RKT makes it easier to stick the ears in with toothpicks or something. 


I'm not an expert with RKT molding OR fondant but I'm willing to try either (I've done both once before)...


I guess I just need a second opinion...

Minnie Mouse Cake I made for a birthday.

This was my first Minnie Mouse cake. It was very easy to do. The hat is made out of RKT. I used a bowl to form the dome shape and then covered it with fondant, the ears are made of fondant and yes I used toothpicks to make them stay on the hat. I already had the hat the fondant balls and the ribbon on the top tier the bottom was already to go to. All I had to do was stack them and I was done! I didn't have the bow on the Minnie hat I also waited for it. I didn't have a problem with transporting the cake our drive time was 45 mins. For me I would rather do a cake than cupcakes....

So cute!


Did you cover the RKT hat with anything before you put fondant over it to smooth out the bumps of the rice krispies?

Thank you!  I covered it with royal icing, smooth it out then covered it. I know my piping needs work... but it was my 2nd cake I had ever made.
