I can’t believe it’s been three years since this little princes/super hero/silly girl made her entrance in to this world.I don’t think any of us would trade her for the world!
She has lots of loves but Minnie Mouse and princesses are in the top spots (okay, so are all animals). I couldn’t resist grabbing up a Minnie Mouse outfit for the occasion. And, of course the ears. Her brothers had to get in on picture time too. And a Minnie Mouse balloon made it a great day.
Emmie loved opening gifts and enjoyed each one.
Because I’m a glutton for punishment, I decided making a Minnie Mouse cake wouldn’t be too hard. If I hadn’t messed up on the fondant the first time (and threw it all over the kitchen table), it probably wouldn’t have been bad…Regardless I am super happy with how it turned out and seeing the smile that stretched a mile wide on our birthday girl was worth every bit of the headache I brought on myself.
For those who want a challenge: Here is the video I used to make the cake. Take note that in the comments, it also includes a link to a template. Templates make life a little easier. I also make my own marshmallow fondant using this website recipe. Finally, this little image saved me from a lot of headache trying to figure out how to get the peachy/light beige color of Minnie’s face.
Here’s the photo montage of the process to get to Minnie!
Minnie has a face! Phew….at this point, I felt like I might survive.
Bowed up. Because we had an extremely busy week, I had to get her face made about five days before her birthday. I just put her in the fridge until we were ready to use her.
The birthday girl with her birthday cake!
