Disney and a Special Birthday Surprise!

So for those of you that follow me on Facebook know I went on a family vacation to Disney back in October. This year the whole family was going including all of my nieces and nephews who had never been to Disney. It was especially special because it was my niece's Paige sixth birthday while we were there.
 So naturally I came up with a plan to make her a birthday cake, and have my wonderful husband drive it 900+ miles down to Florida.
 If anyone has ever delivered a cake, you know it is very stressful, so this was especially nerve wracking since the cake had to go so far. Luckily for my husband, I was not in the car with him for the drive, otherwise I'm sure I would have been driving him nuts checking on the cake. My husband did a great job though because the cake made it in one piece with no damage.
When I got down there I had to finish decorating the cake, adding Minnie's ears and her bow to the top tier. Sometimes when you are on the road you don't have all the tools you need so you have to improvise. I didn't have a steamer with me so I used the tea pot to remove the excess powdered sugar from the ears and bow.
For the design I decided to go with a similar design to my Mickey Mouse cake since it was so popular. I went with pink for Minnie instead of red because what little girl doesn't love pink.

I think she really liked her surprise!

Of course, I had to include some pictures from Disney!

We decided to go to the Mickey Mouse Halloween Party which, I would highly recommend. I think all of the kids had a blast seeing the special parade and trick-or-treating in the park.

So I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our family vacation! If you live near Disney you have to go and see the parks decorated for the season!
