Mickey and Minnie Twin Birthday cake

My niece and nephew will be turning one at the end of this month and that my friends is amazing. They have come such a long way in the last year! They were born at 31 weeks weighing in at 3lbs 5oz (Grace) 3lbs 12oz (John).  Seeing them when they were a few weeks old astonished me, two perfectly tiny itty bitty babies in the incubators melted my heart and when I say tiny I mean TINY!

 I was honored to make their first birthday cake and what better way to celebrate than with friends, family and Mickey & Minnie :D

My sister-in-law sent me few pictures of what she liked for a Mickey cake and what she liked for a Minnie cake so I combined the two to get the perfect combination!

Top tier is a 6" marble cake filled with homemade fudge and vanilla buttercream. All the decorations are fondant and 100% edible.

The bottom tier was chocolate cake filled with homemade fudge, homemade caramel and vanilla buttercream. Mickey's feet are made from Rice Krispy treats and covered in fondant.

What is a first birthday with a cake smash...or two :) John and Grace both got their own cake to smash. John was more than happy to squash the cake but dainty little Grace wanted nothing to do with it and cried her sweet little heart out.
I will follow up with some pictures once I get them :)

 I have to give a HUGE shout out to my sister and brother-in-law. You two have made having twins look easy. Allison you are an AMAZING women and mother and I am so honored to call you my sister.
Love you!!
