I have always liked to play around in the kitchen with cakes. For Mother's day my two oldest children, Joshua and Melissa-Ann decided that they would get me a decorating kit. I don't think they realized what they started.
I made some decorative cupcakes and brought them up to my daughter's job and all the women there couldn't get over them. A few weeks later a friend of hers called and placed an order for those cupcakes and asked if I could make a bridal doll cake.
Not knowing where to begin, I decided to look on line and get some ideas. I didn't have a cake recipe for yellow cake so I made up a cake using Duncan Hines and a pound cake combined so that the cake would be easier to mold.
I stacked a 9",8",6" and a jumbo cupcake, then I placed a a doll pick on top and started to carve the shape of the dress with a serrated knife. I put a crumb coat of white buttercream frosting and let it set in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
I added a second coat of buttercream and then placed trelles around it to give it a lace affect. I purchased some small flowers at the local craft store and made the flowers for the bride doll. That was it my idea of a bridal doll cake.
I was told that at the bridal shower the bride was taking pictures with the cake telling everyone that it was her and that the dress that I made was identical to her dress.
I love this website - such a great FREE resource! My friend and I made this Bratz Doll Birthday Cake for her daughter's 6th birthday party.
I hired a Wonder Mold bowl to bake the cake in. I thought I could just use a deep bowl, but the woman at the cake shop advised me to hire the tin as it has a tube through the middle so that the cake cooks evenly right to the centre. I had bought a Bratz doll for the birthday girl, so I removed it from the packet and wrapped the legs in Gladwrap.
We pushed the doll into the cake, with her legs at a slight angle so she was not too tall. My friend iced the cake with butter icing, and piped on the pink flowers. I think she did a brilliant job! The blue icing flowers and pink edible beads were from the local supermarket. We didn't know where to stick the candles, so we covered a square of cardboard with tinfoil and sat the cake and candles on it.
The birthday girl loved her cake, though she did seem a bit confused when she opened her present to find a Bratz doll box with clothes and accessories but no doll! This photo was taken in the laundry, as that is the only safe place we could hide the cake during the party.
I made this doll cake for my niece, Ody, for her birthday. Since Audrey likes doll so much, I thought one cute doll cake would be a delightful surprise for her.
I made the cake from a simple sponge cake recipe that I learned from a local recipe book. It was a simple vanilla cake. The skirt is made of fondex / fondant, and the other accessories is made of butter cream.
With a little creativity you can make a beautiful cake
