The party was Saturday. I was off on Friday. Well, I could bake the cake on Friday but I'd rather work overtime on my last day and enjoy my day off. I told her I'd do it.
Summer has arrived. The concept I had in mind was Mickey Mouse on a boat. I Googled Mickey on a boat and found quite a few ideas. After some careful deliberation, my sister and I came up with an outdoor concept.
The boy's mom requested for a chocolate cake. I lumped the cake scraps together and formed it into a hill.I applied a thin coat of frosting. I chilled it before applying the next layer of frosting to ensure the cake had no crumbs. I used small star tip to pipe the grass on the hill.
I used the stone-shaped candy coated chocolate to outline the lake. I decided to use the star tip to pipe the raspberry jelly to create ripples in the lake.
Next, I arranged sea creature gummies on the lake
To create a Mickey figure on the side of the cake, I stick big M & Ms for Mickey's face and two small M & Ms for the ears.
As for the cake topper, I spent more than 4 hours going from one store to another to look for Mickey Mouse figurine but to no avail. The stores only had Baby Mickey plush toys. I rang the mother to get her approval before I put this on top of the cake. I know it's big but it's the smallest I could find.
