We suggest you learn how to make a Minnie cake with sugar paste. A perfect decoration for a birthday cake!


  • 1 cake of 18 cm high
  • 1 jar of icing (or homemade icing)
  • 650 g of red sugar dough
  • 75 g of red gum paste
  • 70 g black sugar paste
  • 60 g of flesh sugar dough
  • 50 g white sugar paste
  • 30 g cornflour and icing sugar
  • 1 black food pen
  • 1 food glue


Cake icing

  • Use a cake already ready and cooled (the recipe of choice, here it is a red velvet made with a cake mix). Lay the cake face down. Cut the cake into 2 or 3 layers.
  • Spread icing before re-stacking. Cover the cake completely with a thin layer of icing and allow at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

Make the knot of Minnie

  • Meanwhile, prepare Minnie's knot. Spread finely the gum red paste and cut a strip about 4 cm wide. In this band, cut 2 rectangles 10 cm long. Crease the ends of rectangles and fold them around themselves by wrapping them around a support (a small roll for example).
  • Also prepare the center of the knot by doing the same but folding the edges inwards. Let all these elements dry in the open air.

Minnie's face

  • Also prepare Minnie's face by cutting the various elements of her face into black, fleshy, white and pink sugar paste (a mixture of red and pink for the tongue).
  • Overlay the different elements with a little food glue to get the final face.
  • Leave a little dry before drawing the details with a black food pen.

Cover the cake with sugar paste

  • Roll out the red sugar paste on a surface sprinkled with a mixture of icing sugar and cornflour to prevent sticking.
  • Place the cakes on your serving dish and cover with white sugar paste smoothing the edges.
  • Cut out the excess sugar paste.

Cake decoration

  • Paste Minnie's face in the center of the cake.
  • Then assemble the pieces of the knot and glue them with some food glue.
  • Finish by placing peas of white sugar paste on the knot.
  • Finally form a roll of red sugar and a white sugar paste and roll them together to get a two-colored pudding to deposit around the cake for a nice finish.
