Minnie Mouse Cake, Cookies, Cupcakes and other sweets!

This weekend was our niece's first birthday party!  This is the baby of the family and she has all of us crazy! When we decided to go with the Minnie theme, I got together with my sister-in-law and she showed me a cake and cupcakes online that she liked, so I re-created them and changed a couple of things to make it mine.  To compliment the cake, I made other sweets as well.  Oh, did I mention that I had a ton of fun working on this project for cute little Giselle?
Leelee's Vanilla Specialty Cake, Vanilla bean buttercream topped with MMF. Minnie hat is half a ball and the ears are made of MMF mixed with gumpaste.

These are the cutest Minnie cupcakes ever.  To give them the rounded look on top, I first frosted them with vanilla bean buttercream, then covered with a disk of MMF.  

This is how I wanted to display them on the dessert table

Yummy vanilla-strawberry cookies that were just perfectly golden brown on the back, making them nice and juicy and covered with royal icing and MMF bow! These were pretty big 5" cookies.  They were placed in cellophane bags and tied with a pink and white polka dot ribbon.  Absolutely adorable!

These are marshmallows covered in strawberry candy melts and sprinkled with pink sugar crystals.  I made the holder with styrofoam, ribbon and tissue paper and cut out Minnie silhouettes that I painted with acrylic paint.
These are assorted blow pops that I covered in light pink tissue paper and inserted them in a styrofoam covered in tissue paper, ribbon and Minnie silhouette.
This was me testing how I would place the items on the dessert table before packing everything to take the next day.
I also added some strawberry twizzlers, strawberry wafer cookies and chocolate covered pretzel sticks in nice and tall apothecary jars! 
This is how Gigi's dessert table looked!
