Step 1: Materials Needed
Fondant (homemade or bought)
Butter cream frosting (homemade or bought)
Vodka (yes vodka)
Food coloring (I use Wilton gels)
Wired pink ribbon
Cake board (10" round)
Decorating bag and tips
Step 2: Make the cake
For the bottom of this cake, I used white butter cream. I'd give you my recipe but it's a guarded secret. ;-)
For the second lay bake a 6" round cake, freeze it, then frost is a lovely pink.
To make your butter cream frosting pink - add a dash of red and smidgen of black. The black will deepen the color but you barely wat to use any.
Step 3: Fondant Flair
Step 4: Paint the fondant
To make your dye flow and get the rick color on you need to mix up your "paint"
Teaspoon of vodka and enough food coloring (in this case black) to make the liquid look black.
Do not freak out!! The vodka will evaporate, the alcohol will not be left you will not be given small children a buzz.
Take your paint brush and brush on the liquid black, let this dry completely before serving (see above for why)
Step 5: Minnie your Mouse
Use your ribbon with wire to go around the bottom of the cake and tie a bow.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
I wound up making a second 6" cake for this birthday party in a different flavor, I decorated it very similarly.
Any questions ask away!
