Let me just put it this way..... I don't think I am going to be a cake decorator anytime soon, at least not in this lifetime (lol). I am happy to say that the cake is complete and for it being my VERY 1st TIME EVER to decorate a cake..... at least this way, I am happy to say that it turned out pretty good. The only part that I am not satisfied is the black part that comes around the side of his face. It is so hard to see where to start and where to end things and that is where we had the most difficult time. My MIL showed me how to make the stars and how to go about decorating and then I just took off. It took me a couple hours to decorate it, but it was worth it when Cameron saw it and said "Mickey Mouse." So, if he sees that it is Mickey Mouse then I am happy if he is happy. It just looks like a cross between a Mickey Mouse and an Elvis with side burns if you ask me (hahahahaha). I think that next year and the years after that I will be ordering from good old Krogers or Wal-Mart if I want any specialty cake. Here are a few pictures that I took last night. I could only get a few pictures because my batteries were so dead. As you can see..... Cameron helped me mix the cake batter and of course eat it, then we popped the cake out of the pan and I sat there trying my best to find more clear lines, but I wasn't seeing any so as you can see, it was pretty difficult to decorate or at least it was for me.
