You all know I love sprinkles and I LOVE Mickey Mouse! So this smash cake was super fun for me to do!
Getting the sprinkles stronger on the bottom and getting less going up is easy, it was a little trickier going the other direction. I started by covering the top, easy.
Then working on the corner, getting it covered and still nice and sharp. Then slowly working my way down (I have a spinning cake stand that tilts that made this MUCH easier.
For the Mickey Mouse I bought this “cookie cutter” a few months back, it arrived WAY smaller than I expected, and not at ALL sharp on one side, I’ve been letting my kids play with it, but it was PERFECT for this topper!
AND I gave in, instead of using my from scratch white cakes (that end up very dense and hard to “smash” I used a BOX mix for this. Oh the HORROR! But it smashed really well my sister said! and since it doesn’t really get eaten I guess I’ll have to go with it.
If you want to learn how I frost all these buttercream cakes I’m now teaching two online classes with more on the way! Anything you really want to learn?
