Homemade Doll Cupcakes

I used these doll cupcakes as an activity for my daughter's seventh birthday. Each girl got one, and we decorated them together at the party. They took them home later as a party favor. (I made sure to send the doll's original clothes and shoes home with each child.)

The picture you see is what I did before the party. I then provided powdered sugar butter icing (all different colors) and small candies for them to decorate with.

The cupcakes themselves are yellow cake, and the frosting is a fluffy, egg-white based frosting. I let them dry overnight before having the girls attempt to decorate them. The only thing that is a little tricky is getting the dolls in without their feet going through the bottom, or splitting the cupcake. Make a few extra cupcakes just in case!

What I found the easiest was using a table knife and poking a hole in the top of the cupcake before trying to stick the doll in. Then, I frosted the dolls' dresses with the doll's hands UP, and then when I was finished lowered the hands. Oh, and make sure you get dolls with their hair up, or put it up yourself before frosting!

I used Kelly dolls (or at least the generic kind of Kelly dolls). They are just the right size for the cupcakes!

Where to find Kelly Dolls?
by: Shannon

Hello,

I love your idea of making individual doll cakes for each little girl attending the birthday party. I would like to use your idea at my daughter's 6th Birthday party in May. I am having a difficult time finding the Kelly dolls (real ones or generic). Could you please tell me where you found them?

Thanks!
Shannon

Where I found the Kelly dolls
by: Rachel B

I live overseas, so I found them at the market here and I know that's no help to you.

You might try amazon.com, or I know Target used to have them a couple years back. Maybe they don't make them anymore???

Let me know if you find them!

Any party store you can find the dolls. You can also make 1 big cake with a regular Barbie Doll

Do a search on "Kelly Dolls" on Amazon or eBay. I got a lot of 20 new ones on eBay.

Also, what frosting recipe did you use? I figure it has to set somewhat to avoid getting bumped around after you frost them, but not so much that the girls can't decorate them by pressing sprinkles, candies, etc., into the frosting.

Frosting
by: Rachel B.

I used something like 7-minute frosting, or "fluffy white frosting" in a Better Homes cookbook. It has been so long ago I don't remember anymore! It has egg whites in it, and sugar, maybe cream of tartar. BUT, I think it did set (I did them the night before). You can decorate with a simple powdered sugar/water mixture, to use that like glue and stick candy on. (Kind of like you do with gingerbread houses.)

Homemade Doll Birthday Cake

This doll birthday cake is baked in my kitchen aid bowl. I use two boxes of cake mix, cook at 300 degrees for about an hour and fifteen minutes. I took a cup of cake mix prior to baking, colored it to match the dress and swirlled it with the white cake mix. Then when it was cut into, not only do you have the pretty outside, you have frosting, and swirly pretty cake.

I wrapped the doll with saran wrap prior to inserting her into the cake. I only wrapped up to her hips. Then using frosting, I created the gown. Part of the gift is the new dolly which is quite a hit in our house of three little girls!

Coolest Dolly Cake

I made this Dolly Cake cake with my children so didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped but I'm new to this cake making so I don't think it's too bad and this cake was just for fun.

The cake is a sponge cake crumb coated with buttercream and covered in fondant. The arms and legs are fondant shaped. I found it quite hard to get the arms to stay in place but eventually they did and then when I was putting on the head part I ended up squashing her face.

It's a copy of my daughter's favorite toy `Dolly`.

I always make my daughter a Doll Birthday Cake for her birthday. i use buttercream icing but this year was the first year I used fondant. It took me 24 hours. I worked straight through the night. I thought it looked bad, but my darling daughter said it was the best cake I ever made. It was well worth it .

I used white cake with white icing, a Wilton doll cake pan and a Wilton flower cake pan. I used a real Barbie doll.

I made this Homemade Dolly Cake for a teacher leaving school. It is a vanilla cake. The back is covered in fondant icing and the front in butter icing which I coloured.

I then sprinkled the whole thing in masses of glitter. The cake I baked I did in a large perspex bowl to get the shape.
