Adventures in cake, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

Cake originally made for Boo in Jan 2009.

My youngest fell in love with Mickey Mouse just a couple of months after she turned one.  I asked her what kind of party she wanted when she turned two and she immediately said Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  I went to work scouring the internet for pictures of a cake that I would be able to make for her.  Most of the MMC cakes were of the Clubhouse itself, either drawn on a sheet cake or made in 3D.  While some were nice, they weren't really what I had envisioned.  


This is what I came up with.  




And the back.




This cake was really easy.  It is two six inch layers stacked on two eight inch layers.  If you notice it is leaning a bit.  Yeah, I didn't put any supports in it.  Looking back I am probably lucky it didn't fall over.


I iced the entire cake in a light blue to mimic sky.  I then started on making the Clubhouse and Toodles.




I piped the red icing (red icing from a Wilton tube since I didn't need much) first, to form the "body" of the house using a #7 Wilton tip.  I made sure it came off the cake for a 3D effect.  Next, I used a #5 Wilton tip to and the head in black (also from a tube).  I used the same #5 tip to draw the leg.  I made a small amount of yellow icing and piped the shoe using a #3 Wilton tip.  The windows are just dabs of white from and #3 Wilton tip and the black lines were drawn on the windows and the shoe with a #1 Wilton tip.  The slide was made with a #79 Wilton tip to make it look a bit like an actual slide.  I was a bit wobbly though.




I used the #5 tip to make the arm for the balloon glove and the #3 tip for the white glove.  The glove stripes were added with the #1 tip.  There is also a better shot of the slide.




This shot gives you an idea of how far the "body" comes out from the cake.




Here is Toodles.  I don't think you can have a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake with Toodles somewhere.  I used the #7 Wilton tip to make the back of Toodles, then used the same blue as the sky to make his screen. The yellow accents were added with a #3 Wilton tip, and those small red dots were made using a #1 Wilton tip.  I mixed my yellow and red with a bit of white to get the lighter colored dots for the screen.  They were pipped with a #3 tip then pressed flat with my finger.  I also didn't realize how big of a fan my daughter really was of this show until she pointed out that my Toodles was backwards.  She was right, this is a mirror image of how he actually looks.




The bottom border is just made with the Wilton #233 tip to look like grass.  To fill in the rest of the cake I simply added clouds made with the #7 Wilton tip.


Any question feel free to ask!

  10. What a great job you did! I love all of the detail. I'm a bit skeptical of your statement that it was easy, though. I have tried to make (very simple) cakes/cupcakes for both of my son's birthdays, and I have failed miserably.

  11. Cute! I'm thinking of doing the same thing for my toddlers bday. I was thinking if serving hotdogs with several different toppings to match the theme song. :)
