When Raajas turned Three! | Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday Party

Every year I keep waiting for the month of December because that’s the only time when I get to plan, like really plan, a birthday party and bake like there is no tomorrow. 20th December 2014 was no different. Raajas turned three and this time he was actually able to tell what was his favorite cartoon character – Mickey Mouse of course! With the theme sorted, I was poring over various ideas on Pinterest pinning about 100 ideas and things to do. Like always, I also ended up facing some epic fails with pinterest inspirations but whatever we did manage to do turned out good. 🙂 This birthday was special; more because we had many more friends of Raajas’ age thanks to the nursery school and park times and the birthday boy (unlike the previous years) was actually half (!)- excited about the birthday party. Of course he did start howling when we got all teenage-y and wished him happy birthday at midnight.. but well..

I have to share with you all the stuff I got to make, especially the birthday party menu and the buffet. Go ahead, take a look.

The mickey mouse cake

I used the recipe for the Chocolate Orange Cake to make this mickey mouse cake with orange whipped cream frosting.

Inspired by Pinterest wall hangings, but not having that amount of patience I ended up just hanging mickey cutouts from the ceilings. But the kids and Raajas were thrilled to see ‘soo many Mickey Mouse’. 🙂

These chocolate spoons were a big hit as the kids were given these spoons to eat the chocolate mousse. I have to thank my friend Preeti of IsingCakes for this fab idea and the spoon moulds.

This was a simple chocolate cake covered with a vanilla bean whipped cream frosting. This number 3 cake went to his school for the birthday celebration.

Beautiful ideas on Pinterest for the party door signs, but with my limited drawing ability, I could only manage this!

And finally I proudly present the handpainted Mickey no. 3 tee shirt, my first time painting on fabric, and oh yes, the birthday boy! 😉
