Mickey Mouse Party ... Mickey Mouse Cake

Wednesday was Caden's 6th Birthday, we were having his birthday party on Saturday but I wanted to do something special for his actual day.  I have my women's group at church that night and the boys go to a youth group that night.  So why not whip up a cake for the kids to share, it's summer time so not many groups are going on so not many kids attend so I just made a small cake.  I wanted to stick with the Mickey theme he picked out and found a really cute Mickey Cake on Love Our Disney.


  • Your favorite cake recipe (I used my go to Homemade Yellow Cake Mix)
  • 2 6" Round baking pans
  • 1 8 or 9" (I prefer 9) round baking pan (I just used 2 9" and cut out 2 circles out of one cake)
  • Frosting (I used my Sturdy Buttercream Frosting dyed Black & I had a can of Red Frosting)
  • A big surface to put the cake on (I used a cake board)
Make your cake mix (I doubled the recipe to make it nice and fluffy). Pour mix into greased pans and bake until done (I swear by Wilton's Cake Release). Stick a toothpick in to check it is done, as soon as the cake comes out of the oven, take a butter knife and run it around the edges of the cake to make sure it is separated from the pan. Let the cakes cool 15-20 minutes. Then, remove them from the pan, evening the tops (which will then become the bottom, if needed). Place the cakes on your cake base (I used a cake board). Classic Mickey has 2 ears connected to the head (so you cut a moon off each small circle - see picture below).  The Tootles version you would leave the small circles with no cutting.  Once cake is cooled, I frost it.  I decided that I would do the top half (the ears and half the large circle) black and the bottom red.  I then put the cake back into the fridge to harden up the frosting.  I then took yellow frosting gel to make to ovals like buttons on the red.  I also added red frosting gel with the #6 on each ear.  I hope this makes sense see the pictures for the step by step.



This was really simple to put together, if I would have been doing for the party I would have covered the cake in fondant.
