Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Theme Party
MM Clubhouse Cake
The party hats were painstakingly made by Y

It was Justin's 5th birthday party yesterday & he had a MM clubhouse theme party. His mum asked me if I could bake him a clubhouse cake & the moment I looked at the picture, I was like thinking how am I going to tackle this ?
Since it was only end of September, I thought there's still plenty of time. After the Raya holiday, his mum Y said he wanted sponge cake, so sugar paste is out. Considering the lightness of the sponge cake, every thing on the cake must not be heavy. So Y & I were running round town on seperate trips looking for stuff to make the MM head & the hand. No luck after looking through all the big craft shops in town, so we have to turn to toys that our kids have.
The cake was a chocolate cake filled with chocolate fudge & frosted with buttercream. Besides the MM head & the hand (created by my 'designer'), everything on the top of the cake was edible & the colour was of course food colouring, including the black colour. The dome & the leg part were chocolate sponge cakes & I didn't fill it as I was worried it might be too heavy for the bottom cake to take it. A dowel was inserted into the leg part to support it.
It was a fun party, the kids had fun, the mums had fun too !
