What You’ll Need
2 8" round cakes, baked from your favorite recipe

3 cups red frosting, store bought or from your favorite recipe
3 oz. semi-sweet chocolate, melted

How To Make It
  • 1

    Melt 3 oz of semi-sweet chocolate, in a double boiler or microwave.

  • 2

    Remove baked and cooled chocolate cake from custard cup and place on a small plate.

  • 3

    Use a serrated knife to trim the cake into a dome or hat shape. Push two round chocolate wafer cookies into the dome -- these are your Mickey ears.

  • 4

    Pour melted chocolate over the dome. Be careful to avoid dripping on the cookie ears.

  • 5

    Place the plate in the refrigerator while the chocolate sets, about an hour.

  • 6

    While your chocolate hat is setting, stack baked 8" cakes to make a 2-layer cake, spread frosting between the layers. Frost the cake with red icing.

  • 7

    Once the chocolate has set, it's time to crown the cake with Mickey's hat. Remove the plate from the refrigerator and loosen the chocolate dome from the plate using a sharp knife. Be careful not to crack the chocolate shell! If you are having trouble, let the chocolate soften up a bit before removing, this should only take a few minutes.

  • 8

    Place the chocolate hat on top of the red layer cake.

  • 9

    Dab dots of white icing buttons on top of the cake.

  • 10

    Use your white gel icing to write the birthday kid's name on the dome of the hat.
