Equipment

  • 30 cm Ruler
  • Sharp knife or scalpel
  • Small paintbrush
  • Grease-proof paper
  • Rolling pin (small)
  • Small circle cutter or piping nozzle

Materials

  • 30 ml water
  • 50 g icing sugar
  • 1 pack light pink fondant
  • 1 pack white fondant
  • 1 piece yellow fondant

Instructions

  • Roll out the light pink fondant to about 0.5 cm thick on a surface dusted with icing sugar.
  • Cut out 6 rectangles (12 cm x 2.5 cm) using a ruler and a sharp knife.
  • Cut out 6 more rectangles (5 cm x 1 cm) using a ruler and a sharp knife.
  • Brush the middle of one of the smaller rectangles with water and layer a larger rectangle perpendicularly over the top. It should look like a cross.
  • Brush the middle of the larger rectangle with water and fold the ends into the centre.
  • Fold the ends of the smaller rectangle over the larger one so that the ends overlap in the centre of the larger rectangle.
  • Turn the bow over and pinch the back (where the ends have joined) until you're happy with the shape of the bow.
  • Set aside to dry and repeat with the other rectangles.
  • Roll out the white fondant, on a surface dusted with icing sugar, to about 2.5 mm thick.
  • Cut out multiple (about 35) small circles using a small circle cutter or the end of a piping nozzle.
  • Gently attach the circles to the pink bows using water and a paintbrush.
  • To make Mickey's buttons, roll out the yellow fondant on a surface dusted with icing sugar, to 2.5 mm thick.
  • Cut out small circles with a small circle cutter or the end of a piping nozzle.
  • Using a rolling pin, gently roll the circles into even oval shapes.
  • Set all fondant decorations to the side to dry for 24 hours. Make sure they are in a cool, dry place and aren't in direct sunlight.
