How to Make a Mouse Out of Icing

Updated April 17, 2017

Decorating your own cakes can be a fun and inexpensive way to make desserts for birthdays, weddings and other special occasions. Fondant is a simple-to-use type of icing that can be shaped and moulded into almost any shape imaginable. Making fondant mice involves simple techniques and can be an easy way for cake-decorating beginners to get started. Make a mouse out of icing as a memorable decorative touch for children's parties, themed events or any time you want to make a whimsical memory.

Roll grey fondant icing into an oval shape and pinch so that the top quarter, which will be the mouse's head, is defined from the bottom three-quarters. Shape the two ends of the mouse so they are slightly pointed.

Create two small triangles of grey fondant with rounded tops and place them on the top of the smaller section of the oval for the mouse's ears.

Make two slightly smaller pink triangles and place them inside the grey triangles.

Roll out two small balls using white fondant and place on the top middle of the smaller part of the oval for the eyes. Flatten the balls as you put them in place.

Make three smaller black balls and place two of them on top of the white balls for the pupils. Put one on the tip of the smaller part of the oval for the nose.

Roll out four thin lines of black fondant and place at the tip of the smaller oval so that one end touches the black ball and the other end goes toward the back. These are the whiskers.

Roll out a long, thick piece of black or pink fondant and make small hash marks along the length of it. This is the tail.

Attach the tail to the back of the larger part of the oval.
