Mickey and Minnie Dessert Table






























Hi Cake Sweeties

I am very excited to share my children’s combined birthday party with you today in the beginning of 2017. I can’t believe my little valentine is 4 (well, as of next Monday) and my baby girl is 2 (well, as of early next month). Paul and I threw them a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse birthday party last weekend to celebrate – a little before their actual birthdays as we are going away for a birthday holiday before my little valentine is back to childcare.

Ever since my boy found himself a Disney YouTube channel screening Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, he has been obsessed with Mickey Mouse. I then changed the planned theme from Dora to a combined Minnie Mouse theme for his little sister and they loved it – especially my little girl loves Minnie Mouse too.

I was overly excited to make these different Mickey and Minnie Mouse treats. Decorating the actual cake was quite a challenge not from the techniques but from the design point of view. I really can’t settle on how to combine Mickey and Minnie Mouse into one tier cake (we only had a small group of people this year). I don’t want it to get overcrowded with different elements. All the plaques and cuts out were the last minute addition in the morning of the party except of the Clubhouse Topper (I made it but I thought I wouldn’t able to use it because the size but it actually fitted on top of the 6” round cake all right).
I loved my children’s reaction when they saw the cake for the first time. They kept yelling "Mickey and Minnie Cake!”!
