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.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
