How to Make a Minnie Mouse Cake
Minnie mouse cakes are a beloved birthday treat for girls. With just some basic buttercream piping skills, you can create an eye-catching confection sure to wow everyone at your celebration!
Making a Minnie Mouse Cake
Start by baking your favorite white cake recipe in an 8-inch by 13-inch (23 by 33 cm) cake tray, greased either with butter or nonstick spray. After that cools completely, decorate the cake as desired!
Once the cake has cooled, use a serrated knife or our tried-and-true cake-cutting method to trim away the top of the cake for even height. Don’t forget to tidy up any extra cake scraps too!
Next, prepare a round glass pie pan and fill it with half of the batter to form Minnie’s head.
While your cake cools, create a bow for Minnie’s head by cutting two triangle-shaped pieces of cake and one small circular one. Place these triangles in place, then sandwich together the small circle to form Minnie’s bow.
Add some vibrancy to the pink frosting by adding red food coloring. This will give the buttercream a lovely pink hue.
You could also add a drop or two of black food coloring to the light pink frosting to create a darker shade that will match better with your bow.
Now that the bow is attached, it’s time to decorate your Minnie Mouse cake! Here are a few tips for creating the perfect cake:
To achieve perfect buttercream icing, divide it into three bowls and color each one separately. This will guarantee your frosting has equal size and hue.
Finally, frost the bow with the appropriate color and ensure your Minnie mouse cake has been frosted to an excellent standard! Doing this will enable you to cut a smooth bow from the frosting and proudly display it on your Minnie mouse cake.
Keep your cake cool and tidy to maintain its aesthetic appeal and freshness for extended periods.
