Mickey Mouse Cake

Ali's mom has had a lifelong love of all things Disney, but she has had a special affection for Mickey Mouse ever since her visit to Disney World at age 16 when Mickey gave her backside a little pinch!  There is even a photograph to commemorate it!  For her surprise 50th birthday party at Poco Cappello Ristorante in Bond Head, only a Disney cake would do, so we designed this beautiful brown sugar cake with brown sugar Swiss meringue buttercream, each slice served with caramel sauce.  The entire cake was covered in red fondant, yellow and black Mickey ears and the Disney font spelling out "Happy 50th" completes the Disney design!  Using the infamous photograph, I styled Ali's mom out of gumpaste, wearing the same outfit as she did on that day 34 years ago and look closely to see Mickey reaching behind for his pinch!  The cake was a huge hit and it was a real pleasure to make!
