Well this has just been a busy Disney themed weekend! I really think this cake is the sweetest thing ever. The white fondant with the soft pink is such pretty contrast to the black Minnie ears. The pink polka dots were made with a small cookie cutter, the Minnie shape was made the same way as the Mickey cupcakes the day before. The big black ears were made with two very large round cookie cutters that I let dry overnight on a baking rack covered with a paper towel. The bow and ruffles were made by cutting out a long ribbon. After the polka dots and Minnie was glued onto the cake, I carefully pushed the ears into the top of the cake so they would be secure and not fall. I tri-folded a long piece of ribbon and covered the seam with a smaller piece to look like a knot. Once on top of the cake I opened up the loops and used a twisted paper towel until the fondant was a little firmer and kept it shape. The ruffle was laid, overlapping on top of the cake board barely touching the cake and glued in place. I added a little bow on Minnie along with the 3. Lastly I piped little pearls around the base of the cake, a top of the ruffles. This cake is darling and would look so cute next to the Mickey Mouse cupcakes I just made!
