For my sons 5th birthday party he wanted a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse birthday party. He insisted on having a Clubhouse cake something I wasn’t sure I would be able to pull off but I was willing to give it a try. I learned a few lessons like a head made out of cake is heavier than you would think and it needs a lot of support. You can actually see from the pictures how the head began to sink. If I ever made another one I would build in a platform for the head to sit on. To make the cake I used a ball cake set made by Wilton for the head and I used a metal bowl for the body. The ears and the foot wrote made from fruity pebbles rice crispy treats that were molded by hand and covered in fondant. Even with my mistakes the cake was great. Everyone was impressed with the effort and my son LOVED it! It looked enough like Mickeys Clubhouse to impress him and that’s all that matters.
