Minnie Mouse Bow Cake

In honor of #RocktheDots and Minnie Mouse getting her star on the walk of fame (and National Polka Dot Day), I did something fun and made a Minnie Mouse bow cake, and wanted to share the recipe with you! Now, I am no professional baker by any means, and yes, I did use a box mix, but I made the frosting from scratch. It may not look perfect, but it was fun and delicious!

Now, I did actually find a bow cake pan, and this was the perfect way to use it! It worked great with one box of cake mix, and then I shaved it to make the bottom flat. If you have a rectangular shaped pan, you could cut two triangles and a small circle to achieve a similar shape. I went with party chip cake mix, because it’s a polka dot cake!

The frosting was adapted from a Betty Crocker recipe I found online, which called for 3 cups of powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla, 1/3 cup of butter, and 1-2 tablespoons of milk. I added red food coloring, but set some of the white frosting aside for the dots. I wasn’t a fan of the consistency, so I added more milk to thin it a bit. You can totally use store bought frosting, I just suggest beating it with a mixer to make it a little fluffier and easier to spread. I had never successfully made frosting, so that’s why I tried to make it for this!

Once the cake was frosted in red, I put the white frosting in a bag and cut off the tip so I could pipe on the circles. I took a spoon to try to round them as they were slightly more oval. After that, the cake was done and ready to eat (and turned out quite delicious, I will say)!
