Step 1

3 days in advance: Make bows and letters. For Minnie?s bow, tint 6 oz. gum paste rose. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Using patterns, cut one bottom and two top sections. Score lines with veining tool following pattern. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. Attach top sections to bottom with damp brush. Roll out white gum paste 1/16 in. thick; cut circles using wide end of tip 2A. Attach to bow with damp brush. Roll a 1/2 x 2 in. long log of rose gum paste; taper one end and attach for knot. Let dry. Also: Cover base board with fondant.

Step 2

For cake border bows: Tint 4 oz. portions of gum paste blue, violet and yellow. Roll out 1/8 in. thick; cut 2 1/2 x 10 in. strips, four in each color. Fold ends toward center and attach with damp brush. Pinch center. Cut a 1 x 3 in. strip for knot; wrap around center and attach in back with damp brush. Insert cotton balls in loops to hold shape and let dry on cornstarch-dusted board.

Step 3

Make letters: Roll out gum paste 1/8 in. thick. Cut letters using cutters from set. Let dry on cornstarch-dusted board. Prepare base board. Tint 100 oz. fondant dark rose and cover 22 in. board with 72 oz. Reserve remaining fondant.

Step 4

Bake and cool Minnie Mouse cake and 2-layer 18 in. cakes (bake four half-rounds to create 18 x 4 in. cake). Prepare cakes for Stacked Construction.

Pipe tip 3 dot eye highlights and outline eyelashes.

Cut 18 strips, 1 1/2 x 8 in. long; attach 1 in. apart at base and angled toward center of cake top with damp brush. Use Baroque mold and dark rose fondant to make pearl bead trim (56 in. needed); attach to bottom border with damp brush.
