M...I...C.... See ya real soon

While Disney still holds the heart of many kids, I've one one friend who's little guy has gone totally old school and loves Mickey! I think that's pretty cool. So when he had a birthday, a Disney theme was in order.

I mentioned in the last post how I've had kiddos that I've made all sorts of cakes for and Grayson is no exception: baby shower and first birthday. So making his second birthday cake was a blast for me! With special dietary needs, I had to get creative with the cake. And Mom likes BRIGHT, colorful cakes! Which was cool with me. I've done a Mickey cake before, but I needed a little different angle on this one. And when I think Mikey Mouse, I think ears.

I'll be honest, it's been so long I don't remember what frosting recipe I used. But I was apparently pretty proud of how nice and smooth I got it. I'll be honest, that's quite a feat because I'm not great with buttercream, which is why I love fondant. Fondant covers up a multitude of cake sins.

And the finished product! I especially love the Disney font for his name.

 Aren't those baby blues and dimples just too much?

The filling is cookies and cream (totes yummy!)
