M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E!

Ivana wanted a Mickey Mouse Cake for her son's 2nd birthday... and by Mickey Mouse Cake, I mean, a Mickey Mouse head :) She was coming into town to celebrate the occasion with her family and needed a fairly large cake to do it in style. This cake was actually much bigger than I anticipated because the round face was a 9-inch cake and the ears were 4-5 inches round and the whole thing was 4-inches tall. It was all Chunky Monkey Cake, which is chocolate cake layered with chocolate ganache and banana cream filling and sliced bananas.
Although it looks very simple to do, this cake was pretty challenging to get right. Mickey is such a recognizable character that any slight error would be obvious so I had to make it as perfect as possible. The flash in the picture makes Mickey's face look more pale than it was but here's a front shot. Oh, I guess I should mention that "Sreten Rodendan Kristian" means Happy Birthday, Kristian in Croatian :)
