My mom gets all the credit for getting this cake frosted. We used a chocolate spray can of frosting for his ears and around his head. She made up a batch of white icing and than we mixed up the skin tone color from the Dora icing kit. Only to realize that Dora is Mexican and we were going to have a dark skin Mickey. She mixed more white icing in and it came out perfect. Just added the tongue, eyes, and a nose and 11:00 that night we had a Mickey Mouse cake with 24 cupcakes.
Lesson here: It would have been easier to buy a cake at a store!!! I will not be quiting my day job to pursue cake making.
The Final Result-Thanks Grandma Sue!!
