Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willie Cake and Cupcake Project – cake decorated with the iconic image taken from the animated movie “Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willie”. Accompanied by cupcakes with Mickey and Friends toppers made of chocolate. Price available upon request.
I have had lots of inquiries about a Mickey Mouse-themed cake but sadly those would-be projects never pushed through. I bought a Mickey and friends chocolate mold so I will be ready in case someone inquires. And then R._ came along.
Her baby was about to turn one and the party’s theme was the vintage “Mickey Mouse in Steamboat Willie.” Finally! Out came the chocolate molds from our cabinet, yipee! R._’s one request: can the cake be banana or carrot so her son can eat it? Hmm, this baby surely knows what he wants!
As with my usual method, I made the cake topper with chocolate. R._ wasn’t too particular whether the topper is standing or not. I thought it would be better if it was a lay-on because the finished image was fragile. I added a white chocolate background frame to make the image pop. It did more than that—it gave it a rather 3D look.
Making the letters using the Disney fonts was challenging. Several letters broke before I got the hang of making them. Come decoration day, more got shattered! I started over again and changed the color from red to yellow which really worked well.
R._ was kind enough to share photos from the happy celebration. She later told me that everyone loved the banana cake and cupcakes. In her exact words: “The cake and cupcakes got so much raves, impressed sila (guests were impressed)! And so yummy pa!”
Thanks, R._ for letting Sublime Sweets be part of your special event. Thanks also to my cousin J._ who was our common connection. As shown in one of the photos below, there is a vintage Mickey Mouse figurine beside the cake. J._painted it!
