A Disney Birthday
My cousin's birthday was this past weekend. And, as promised, I made him a birthday cake. After much thought, a Disney cake seemed appropriate (he's a Disney freak like me). His favorite character being Goofy left me no choice: a Goofy had to be made.
I recruited my husband for this project, and we spent many hours debating how we would tackle it. We ended up using a bit of floral wire to secure Goofy's frame (totally the husband's idea). As for the cakes, I made 4 9" round Devil's Food Cakes. I filled them with a Chocolate Ganache and frosted them with vanilla buttercream. After they were shaped as Mickey's head and ears, each cake was covered in black fondant. Finally a painted Goofy was afixed on top. All in all, a success.

I don't want to bore all of you with pictures of Goofy being made. If you are interested in seeing the progression, follow this link.
