I made a Mickey Mouse cake for Brian’s birthday, and yes I’m a dork for taking pictures of the steps and writing about it! Thanks to my hubby for making the journaling interesting! Thanks for looking! :)

Here’s the journaling:

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease the Mickey Mouse pan very thoroughly and cover it with “fairy dust”. Mix the following ingredients: 8 cups mommy’s love, 1 cup laughter and 6 cups anticipation. Combine everything in a bowl and mix until smooth; pour into pan. Bake for 35 minutes.

Step 2
Go take a shower. Come out, expecting a nice, warm cake aroma, and instead smell smoke. Proceed to become (almost) hysterical. Call the fireman, or dad. Calm down, knowing the cake is in good hands. Make sure there are fans and open windows and doors available for easy access. Check the cake every 5 minutes for the next half hour, then after an hour has gone by, open the oven door to discover that the cake is finally done, although the batter has overflowed over the pan and onto the bottom of the oven. Groan.

Step 3
Have the fireman (dad) carefully remove the cake from the oven and flip upside down onto a prepared foil-covered piece of cardboard. Remove cake pan. This step requires adult supervision.

Step 4
Go to Grandma Taylor’s house for assistance in icing the birthday cake. In a large bowl, combine the following ingredients for icing: 7 cups grandma’s love, 1/2 pound mommy’s love, and lots of sugar! Proceed to outline and fill the eyes, nose, and mouth. Fill in the white spaces.

Step 5
Spend the next 1 ½ hours making tiny stars all over the face and ears. Make sure both hands get very tired and stained pink from the icing. Take a step back and look at your creation that will be devoured in less than 24 hours. Give a big sigh of relief that the cake is finally done. Bring the birthday boy over to see the cake and watch his face light up with a big grin.
