When it comes to planning a special celebration for the little ones in your life, there's nothing quite as sweet as a delicious and adorable cake. Whether it's a birthday, holiday, or just a special occasion, a number and Mickey Mouse cake is sure to be a hit with the kids.
One of the best things about these cakes is that they can be customized to suit any theme or occasion. For example, you could create a Mickey Mouse clubhouse cake for a child's birthday party, or a number cake with their age as the central focus.
If you're feeling creative, you can even combine the two themes to create a unique and memorable cake. For example, you could make a Mickey Mouse-shaped cake with the child's age displayed prominently on the front.
To make a Mickey Mouse themed number cake, you will need:
|Cake mix or recipe||1 batch|
|Frosting mix or recipe||1 batch|
|Black fondant or modeling chocolate||1 batch|
|Red fondant or modeling chocolate||1 batch|
|Yellow fondant or modeling chocolate||1 batch|
|Food coloring (optional)||-|
|Sharp knife or cookie cutter||1|
|Edible markers (optional)||-|
|Mickey Mouse cookie cutter (optional)||1|
1. Level the tops of the cooled cake layers by using a serrated knife to slice off any domed tops. This will help the cake layers to stack evenly.
2. Place one of the cake layers on a cake stand or serving plate. Spread a layer of frosting over the top of the cake.
3. Place the second cake layer on top of the first, and frost the top and sides of the cake.
4. Roll out the black fondant or modeling chocolate to about 1/8-inch thick. Use a sharp knife or cookie cutter to cut out the number or shape that you want for your cake. If you have a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter, you can use that to cut out the number or shape as well.
5. Use the red fondant or modeling chocolate to cut out the ears, and the yellow fondant or modeling chocolate to cut out the nose and buttons. If you are using fondant, you can use food coloring to dye it to the desired color.
6. Use edible markers to add any details or decorations to the fondant or modelling chocolate.
7. Assemble the fondant or modelling chocolate pieces on top of the frosted cake to create the Mickey Mouse design.
Serve and enjoy!
Note: If you are using fondant, be sure to keep the cake refrigerated until you are ready to serve it, as fondant can become soft and sticky at room temperature.

One of the most popular types of number cakes for kids is the classic birthday cake. This can be as simple or elaborate as you like, with the child's age displayed prominently on the front or top of the cake. You can use frosting, fondant, or even chocolate to create the number, and add colorful decorations or sprinkles for an extra touch of fun.
Another popular option is the themed number cake. This could be a sports-themed cake for a child who loves a particular team, or a princess-themed cake for a little princess. You can use figurines, toys, or other decorations to bring the theme to life, and incorporate the child's age into the design in a creative and subtle way.

No matter how you choose to decorate your number and Mickey Mouse cake, it's sure to be a hit with the little ones. So why wait? Start planning your next celebration and get baking!
