For my daughter’s 6th birthday she wanted me to do a Doll Fairy Cake and I tried baking the cake in a glass dish which did not work out. Then I doubled up on my cake mixture and baked two round cakes in the silicone holder (which is bigger in dimensions) the night before. I made the cake a marble vanilla and strawberry inside.
I made my icing mixture and iced the one then put the 2nd on top then shaped the dome dress with a bread knife keeping the curve from the top centre down. The doll’s legs could snap off and therefore did not need a long cake. I wrapped the doll in cellophane and cut a hole in the top cake for the doll to fit into the cake. My daughter wanted a fairy so I had an old butterfly which I used my glue gun to stick to her back.
I made icing with white wooden spoon marg + icing sugar + vanilla full cream milk + egg. When someone told me to add an egg to the mixture I was amazed at the result it makes the icing creamy and easier to apply to the cut cake. I took about quarter of the vanilla icing aside to make that pink and the rest of the vanilla icing I made purple and decorated with all goodies from a cake decorating shop.
I made the flowers around the cake with taking 1 x marshmellow & cutting it 3 times and sticking them down with icing & putting a smartie in the middle. Make sure you leave the sticky part of the marshmellow facing up cause then you sprinkle hundreds & thousands on.
I made this fairy doll cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday party. It was really simple to make and everyone really enjoyed.
I used a normal spongecake recipe, baking it in a round bottom glass ovenproof dish, hollowing out a circle about 2cm deep in the center of the top of the cake in order to place the fairy doll in the center.
I then proceeded to ice the cake using pink royal icing and then placed edible flowers all over the cake and to end off, sprinkles edible silver glitter all over the cake.
We are a family run business, and we were asked to create a Homemade Girls Barbie Doll Cake for a 5 year old birthday party.
This was our first attempt, and I think it came out pretty well. We used a 7 inch round cake tin and a small pudding bowl; this was so that the Barbie dress didn’t look too fat. The cake was decorated using white and pink sugar paste.
