Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake

Here is a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed birthday cake for a 2 year old girl. The two-tiered Bubbly Butterscotch cake had a smooth and light mousse filling, and was topped with a combination of edible and non-edible toppers. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto and Goofy were non-edible toy figurines, and all the other decorations were made with fondant. The birthday girl’s name was spelled out in yellow fondant stars.

Solar System cake

The entire Solar System on a cake! how cool is that?

We got the chance to create this unique cake a couple of months ago. The cake was for a 3 year old boy who loves his Solar System puzzle. This two-tiered cake has a Bubbly Butterscotch flavor and mousse filling with crunchy caramelized nuts. We made the Sun and the bigger planets with styrofoam balls covered in fondant. The smaller planets were simply made with fondant. We also made a little space shuttle to go with the Solar System, since the birthday boy loved rocket ships as well. The major challenge was in creating the ring to go around Saturn. We tried various approaches, and finally settled on making the ring with sugar candy.

Enjoy the pictures!

Minnie Mouse cakes

Here are two Minnie Mouse cakes that we worked on late last year. (Yup, we are still waaaay behind in publishing our cake pics.)

The first cake is an 8″ Strawberry Surprise cake with fruit filling. The cake is covered with pink buttercream frosting and white fondant polka dots. The topper is a Minnie-shaped candle.

The second is a two-tier Chocolate Charm cake with red and white vanilla buttercream frosting. This cake features an edible Minnie Mouse figurine made with fondant.

Monkey cake

We made this monkey-themed 1st birthday cake a few months ago. This Pineapple Passion cake with a filling of pineapple mousse and caramelized nuts has three tiers done in the same color scheme as the birthday party decorations. We also made a dozen cupcakes with to go with the cake. All decorations on the cake, including the cupcake toppers were made with fondant.

Calvin and Hobbes

This was a first for us – a Calvin and Hobbes themed cake. Being ardent fans of the little boy and his sardonic tiger pal, we were very excited in creating this cake. This two-tiered cake that we came up with has a Mango Tango flavor and mango mousse filling with fresh ripe mango chunks folded in. The figures of Calvin and Hobbes and the log they are balancing on are sculpted in fondant.
