I made this Doll cake with a purchased torso doll from a local craft store. The skirt of the cake is a lemon cake baked in a Pampered Chef 2 qt Batter Bowl. I baked it at 325 instead of 350 and left it in for 35 minutes. It came out perfectly baked. I also made a 9" round cake to place it on. The doll cake was supported by a 9" round of foam core board that I placed on top of dowels I pushed down into the cake after it was covered with fondant. I then covered the skirt with fondant as well as the doll bodice.
The flowers were made with fondant and cut with a fondant flower cutter. The little yellow centers were cut with a piping tip. I put the doll's hair in a ponytail and wound a fondant rope around it so I could secure flowers to it with a little water. I then dusted it with silver edible dust.
The words were just sticker letters I put on a piece of fondant made into a ribbon.
I took some help from your website and made this Cinderella Doll Cake for my daughter's fourth birthday and believe me, it was a hit!.
I started the cake by baking two 8" baking pan and one 1.5ltr Pyrex bowl (for her gown)cakes . And I used two Wilton's white frosting box which I had tinted with royal blue color. I used a barbie doll and wrapped it with a clear wrap (but had to take off her legs to fit into the cake). I took some help from the website howdini.com to crumb coat the cake and for other tips.
I sprinkled some blue sugar crystal over her gown. This actually hides the cracks and also makes the cake look pretty.
This cake really made my daughter's birthday a memorable one. Thanks a ton to all the people for posting their cakes and tips. It really helped me (novice) to put the cake together and made my daughter's day so special.
I made this Doll Cake for my friend's birthday. She had recently got engaged and for a laugh we bought her a loo roll dolly for her bathroom. So I decided to make her a cake based on it.
I made one sponge in a Pyrex bowl, then 4 small sponges and filled and stacked them with buttercream then covered in a thick coat of fondant.
I used petal dust to make rings of colour then used crimpers to make the fondant look like it was knitted. I did the same on a small piece of fondant to make the top of the dress on a doll pick. Finished off with a piece of ribbon round her waist.
I made this cake to just give it a shot. Its my first time so used my own ideas. I made a cake in a glass mixing bowl which had a shape of a dress when inverted. I made a hole in the middle of the cake and wrapped the doll with s cling film so it doesnt get the icing. i placed the doll inside and iced on her with a star nozle and the cake too. I just used two colours as it was just a trial, didnt want to waste more colours.
I made this Doll Cake for my daughter's first birthday. I just got metal mixing bowl shaped as a Dolly Vardan cake tin and cooked it in that as the shop was sold out of them at the time i needed it. Then, after I cooked the cake I got a Barbie and took it's legs off then stuck the top half of the Barbie in the middle of the cake then I just decorated the cake as a dress with flowers etc.
