Here is my 1st one!
Mickey Mouse 3D Structure. (Head)
This cake was really special! It was for my big little guy's 4th birthday. Every year my boys get pickier and pickier on what they want on their cake! My son Kian (4) wanted two 3D Cakes! not to mention he wanted some fire truck mini cakes to give to everyone like we did for hit 3rd! SOOOO I did his Mickey 3D cake that he really wanted! (NO I didn't do anything else but that...Ok some chocolate Mickey sticks...some Mickey cupcakes....etc.!) I do stuff for everyone else and when it comes to my boys...COME ONNNN!!!! Not sure what he will ask for his 5th!!!! Pretty lucky kids in my family!... All my nephew's and nieces always get a cool cake every year!
Styro Ball: I picked the styro ball size I wanted. Michaels around $28.
Measured it: Divided into half...top and bottom and sides. Made some lines to see where it was and placed toothpicks to secure the lines where it started and ended.
Cover with Fondant: Roll out a large piece of fondant.... and cover the head just like a cake!
Face: Add the eyes with black and white gumpaste. Mouth with red gumpaste and the little tongue with pink. Stick a toothpick for the nose doing a little black gumpaste tear drop.
There you have it! Please email me if you have any questions! Also let me know if you would be interested in attending a class on 3D cakes in person or online. I will be teaching a 3D cake class in the near future.
About million hours of work on the cake
Lots of money in piping, gumpaste, fondant, boards, styro ball etc.
My son's Face in the Morning as he walked down the stairs:
