Minnie Mouse Topper

After seeing my Big Bird Easter cake, my buddy's daughter wanted me to make her birthday cake this year. So I'm making a Minnie Mouse popping out of a cake, inspired by an awesome dragon cake I saw from Mike's Amazing Cakes. But I didn't want to ruin her birthday with a lame cake. So I did this practice Minnie to make sure it'd look alright. It's all Fondariffic (black, red, and ivory colored buttercream) and Wilton's (white only) rolled fondant. The only inedible parts are the dowel backbone, some wire in the arms, and the eyelashes (black paper). It took 4 hours start-to-finish, but this is the first time I've tried Fondariffic. (It's really soft in this California heat!) Her dress isn't great, but the head and hands turned out better than I expected.
