I’m still learning and experimenting with Cake Decorating. I wanted to share my latest creation.
I decorated Minnie Mouse for my little 2 year old. She loves Minnie. I’m not a great artist like my mom, but I can trace with the best of them.
I found a coloring picture of Minnie Mouse on Pinterest and went to work. I cut the picture apart and placed each piece one at a time on the cake and traced around it with a tooth pick. Then I outlined everything in black decorator frosting. Then it was pretty easy – I filled in the blanks.
There was a time not to long ago when I would have said, “I can’t do that.” Well now I say, “Hey, I’m getting better.” I think I have too much fun creating these birthday cakes.
I wish I had taken for more pictures, but as always I forgot.
I don’t like a lot of frosting on my cake. I know, than why do you bother decorating then. Because they turn out so cute and I’ve found some frosting recipes that I like.
And most important – when your the one decorating you get to control how much frosting is going on the cake. It’s the best job for the birthday party.
2 pound bag powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla (I need to invest in clear vanilla)
1 cup shortening
dash of salt
1 teaspoon butter flavor
Mix well. You will need to experiment with how much milk. You might need more for softer frosting, or less for stiffer.
For my Minnie cake I added milk.
Tip: Add milk in small amounts.
