I made this Mickey Mouse Poinsettia cake for my nephew’s birthday. His birthday is in early December. Also he really enjoyed visiting Walt Disney World last year so I wanted to include Disney in design of the cake. In addition I love Disney and sugar flowers so this cake features two Poinsettia sugar flowers and a festive Mickey head.

Poinsettia Sugar Flowers
I made these Poinsettia sugar flowers using fondant with tylose powder added to make sugar paste. In addition I used the Nicholas Lodge Flower Pro Poinsettia mould to make the flowers. The mold gives great detail to each of the petals. In addition, Nicholas Lodge has nice videos on-line on how to use the molds to make the flowers.
Winter Foliage and Festive Mickey Head
Furthermore I also decorated the cake with winter greenery and holly and berries using the Nicholas Lodge Flower Pro Winter Foliage Mould and the Nicholas Lodge Flower Pro Holly & Mistletoe Mould. In addition I used the Mickey and Minnie Mouse Cast Aluminum Cakelet Pan to make Mickey. I dusted the pan with powdered sugar. then I put fondant with xylose added into the Mickey to make the shape. I carefully removed it and let it dry overnight. Next I colored him with yellow petal dust. Then I used lemon oil and glitter gold luster dust to give him glitter. Next I sprayed Mickey with PME edible glaze to set the colors. After that I reapplied the glitterluster dust and sprayed with PME edible glaze again.
