I'm trying to figure out what would be the best way to make the yellow Mickey feet for this cake for my nephew's birthday..

 

Is using a cake pop mixture good? Maybe shape the feet with the cake pop dough and cover with fondant? My sister really wanted the whole thing cake, rather than a hunk of yellow fondant.

 

Also, to get the more rounded black head, do you think using 1 6" round then the dome cake on top would make it more rounded?

 

Thank you!!!

I personally would use 50/50 fondant gum paste.  Looks like they covered rice krispy treats.  If she wants all cake, then just sculpt them out of cake.  I would use half of the wilton ball pan for mouse ears hat

AThank you! So rkt would be the way to go? I'd really prefer cake... Any chance how to work that?

The feet could easily be carved from mini loaf cakes.   If you have a mini loaf pan just bake up a cake.  I think you probably could get both feet from one.  Otherwise, any small cake - even a 4" or 6" round can be carved to the needed shape.

AThank you kakeladi! Yeah, I guess carving would be a good way to get the shape. I'll try that.. Thanks!!

ARKT with yellow candy clay from Wilton's candy clay recipe would be the way I'd go. It would be easier to cover the RKT than using fondant.
