Bake a 9" round cake then freeze it, once your cake is frozen you can spread your butter cream frosting very easily and evenly.  Much easier than frosting the cake at room temp.

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

Roll out your fondant evenly.  To make my circles I got creative.  The larger ears were made pressing a coffee cup down into the fondant.  The medium circles were made with a shot glass and the tinny circles were created using one of my decorating tips.   You can pick up the fondant and smooth the edges, I was in a hurry and skipped this step, but it can easily be done.
Such a cute Minnie cake! Love it!
