|CAKE PANS I USED: 6" round cake pan and 6" half sphere cake pan|
- Stack the cakes together. Place one of the round cake on top of the cake plate, spread buttercream on top. Stack the other round cake on top, spread more buttercream on top. Invert the sphere cake and stack on top of the round cakes.
- Cover the whole thing with a thin layer of buttercream. Chill for 15 - 30 minutes. Make sure buttercream has hardened before covering it with fondant.
- Roll out brown fondant into a circle. The resulting circle should be 17" in diameter. Diameter could be more but not less.
- Spray or brush cake with water.
- Cover cake with brown fondant. Only cover 3/4 of the cake. Cut excess fondant and set aside. You will use the excess for ears and body.
- Roll out light coral fondant.
- Trim light coral fondant into two skinny long rectangular strips. Each strips should be approximately a 8 inches long. Height of the strips depends on the height of the uncovered area at the bottom of the cake.
- Cover the bottom of the cake with light coral fondant. (see video for tips on how to attach fondant strips). The seams doesn't have to be perfect. It will be covered up later.
- Roll out excess brown fondant. Cut into two 1" tall by 8" long strips. The strips doesn't have to be these dimensions. In fact in the video I used my ruler as a template for cutting my brown fondant strips. These strips are like Mickey's shirt. They go on top of the brown and light coral seams.
- Brush the brown and coral seams on the cake with clear pipping gel. Attach brown strips to the cake where the brown and coral fondant meet. Line up all the side seams as much as posible. See video.
- Roll out flesh fondant as thinly as you can. Cut out a circle using a 6" round cake pan. Lightly fold circle in half. At the top of the folded side of the half circle cut out a half arch (hint: use pizza cutter). Unfold it. This will be Mickey's face.
- Brush pipping gel on front side of the cake. Place mickey's face on it. See video.
- On mickey's face make a dent for his eyes and nose.
- Using black fondant make eyes and nose for mickey.
- Attach eyes and nose.
- For his ears you can use round cookie cutters ro shape them. Dip fondant in tylose powder. knead fondant. Roll out half and inch thick fondant. Cut off 1/4 inches of fondant at the bottom of the circle.
- Insert 3 toothpicks on top of mickey's head. This will add some support to ears. Brush on pipping gel. Attach mickey's ears.
- For mickey's hand roll out white fondant thinly. use small cookie cutters and cut out two circles. cut off a bit at the bottom of cicle. Turn it so that the flat end of mickey's hands are oriented to the side. Attach hands right bellow his face.
- Make 2 little bottons for mickey and attach right bellow his hands (on the light coral fondant).
- Roll out a bit of yellow fondant. Roll out to 3/4 inch thick. Cut out one 1" in diameter circles. Cut this circle in half. This will be mickey's foot.
