You asked for it, and I deliver. Which means I'm going to show you the Minnie Mouse Cake I made for my sister's birthday party. You probably didn't know I am a whiz at creating five tier cakes did you? Me either.
Faux Minnie Mouse Cake!
I would be shouting from the rooftops if it was a cake, so it looks like they'll be no shouting today because it is five round white boxes I turned upside down, stacked and decorated.
Cutting out all the designs from cardstock using my cricut and wrapping the bottom with polka dot ribbon.
It really was the safest way to make a cake this large for the party.
Partly because only the top layer would have been eaten and then I would have had to eat four layers of cake.
Don't worry, the birthday girl didn't go with out a cake, I made her and everyone else tiered cookie cakes to display next to the Minnie Mouse Cake!
Here's a three tier cake I wouldn't have any trouble eating.
Quite simple to make with fondant layers in between each cookie and topped with a fondant flower to match the ones on the faux cake.

Little tiered cookie cakes all around the faux cakes.
Start by measuring out three sizes of round cookie cutters.
Bake six cookies (two each of the three sizes) for each cake.
Roll and cut red fondant with the three size round cutters and stack.
(Not Shown: Before adding the frosting to hold them together, I cut out three sizes of white round pieces of fondant to place on the cookies.)
I then rolled and cut red and white flowers.
Shaped them with a ball tool and placed a black circle in the center.
Let them dry in flower formers until the morning of the party.
I added a glob of frosting and stuck the flower to the cookie cakes and placed them in their little glass display.
Oh, and did I mention I made another little cake? Well I did and it caused me a little trouble. I'll save that for another time.
Now you know how to make a five tier cake and won't have to worry about a thing. I actually made the faux cake months before the party...you can't say that about every cake, right?
Could this possibly be the new trend in cakes? I doubt it.
