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;

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... tapedshut.gif
