Mickey Mouse Birthday

My baby turned 2!  So, we had a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday.  I found my cake design and invitations on 

Here are the pictures of my process in making the cake.  4 vanilla and 1 chocolate can of icing.  The website gives instructions on how much to dye each color.  Once I baked my white 9 x 13 cake I sat it in the freezer over night.  This especially helps if you have some crumbling pieces to try and ice over.

Top half is light blue

The bottom half is green

Then place in the freezer for about 2 hours or until the frosting is frozen
Meanwhile print off the Clubhouse template

I then traced it onto wax paper.  It seemed a little more sanitary to me.  Then cut it out along the edges

Once the icing is frozen pull out of the freezer and place your outline on top.
Outline the play house with the appropriate colors.

Once that is done gently remove your stencil or some of your outline may come off. 
Then fill in the rest of the clubhouse with the appropriate colors.

I didn't have any piping bags so mine is a little messy

I found these cute little Mickey Mouse ears at Wal-Mart. 
We did have some girls coming so we needed a few Minnie Mouse ears

I bought pink ribbon with white poka dots

I then tied them into a bow and place a dot of craft glue on the back

And then placed the bow on top of the headband.

I think they turned out super cute!

I bought the table cloth, Happy Birthday sign, cups, plates, and napkins from Wal-Mart

And to add to the theme I made different color dots and taped them to the wall

I then found a Mickey Mouse Sand Pail at the Dollar tree and placed the forks in it. 
 And our big Mickey we had already.

This is our front porch greeting our guests
And here is the Birthday boy ready to party.

For more ideas check out Playhouse Disney's website!


  1. Good job with the cake! Looks like it took a while!

  2. Thanks Kayla- It would have gone even faster if I didn't have two little boys trying to get into the frosting!

  3. Hey thanks for the info! I'm going to go grab it!!
