#Recipe – A Mickey Mouse birthday cake

It was grandad’s birthday this week and the little ones wanted to make him a birthday cake, so I thought it was the perfect excuse to get creative with the Disney moulds I have. We used the Mickey Mouse silicon mould and went to town. I felt bad that we all ate him, but it was a lot of fun to make with the children.

For the Biscuits
  1. 65 g Lightly Salted Butter , Softened
  2. 50 g Caster Sugar
  3. 1 Portion Egg Yolk , 1 Medium sized
  4. 5 ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract
  5. 125 g Plain Flour , plus extra for dusting
  6. 5 g Mixed Spice
  7. 40 g Currants
To Decorate
  1. 200 g Dr. Oetker Ready to Roll Marzipan
  2. 5 g Icing Sugar , For dusting
  3. 30 g Apricot Jam
  4. Dr. Oetker Chocolate Easy Swirl Cupcake Icing
For the Biscuits
  1. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment.
  2. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk together well until smooth and creamy.
  3. Whisk in the egg yolk and Vanilla Extract.
  4. Sift the flour and spice on top and add the currants.
  5. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined, and then bring the mixture together with your hands to make a fairly soft dough.
  6. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth.
  7. Roll out thinly to a thickness no greater than ½ cm (1/4 inch). Using a 6cm (2 ½ inch) crinkle edged round cutter, stamp out 12 rounds, re-rolling as necessary and place on the baking trays, spaced a little apart. Prick with a fork.
  8. Chill for 30 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 200˚C (180˚C fan assisted oven, 400˚F, gas mark 6).
  10. Bake the biscuits for about 12 minutes until lightly golden round the edges.
  11. Leave on the tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
To decorate
  1. Using the crinkle cutter from above, cut out 12 circles in the ready rolled Marzipan.
  2. Brush the tops of the biscuits with jam or honey and stick a Marzipan disc on top when the biscuits have cooled.
  3. Prepare the can of Easy Swirl Icing as directed and fit the star nozzle on top.
  4. Pipe a small swirl in the centre of each biscuit to resemble a nest.
  5. Fill the nest with chocolate eggs, or rolled up marzipan.
