This is what I came up with.....
My Cheese and Mouse Cake
CHEESE AND MOUSE CAKE
2 1/2 cups (625ml) Self Raising Flour
2 cups (500ml) Sugar
4 large Eggs
1 cup (250ml) Milk
1/4 cup (65ml) Vegetable Oil
1 tsp (5ml) Vanilla Essence
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius.
Mix the eggs and sugar together till thick.
Add the flour, milk, oil and vanilla
Beat till smooth and creamy
Bake for 30-40 mins. It is done when a test pin comes out clean.
LET THE CAKE COOL COMPLETELY
300ml light yellow butter icing
Fondant - I made my own fondant, but you can also use the bought ones
2 balls (size of my fists) light yellow
1/2 ball dark yellow.
1 ball grey
small piece pink
small piece black
small piece white
I will post a recipe for easy fondant and butter icing soon!
When the cake is completely cool, cut a slice out of the cake then ice the cake with the butter icing.
Roll out the light yellow fondant to 1/2 cm thick and cover the whole cake with the fondant.
Cut circles out of the dark yellow fondant and place all over the cake - to create holes. You can use an edible glue to stick the circles to the cake, but a little water works just as well.
Make some mice out of the grey fondant, add pink to the ears and some black for the nose, eyes, tails and whiskers. Use the white for teeth and eyes.
