My friend’s daughter always wanted to have a Princess Cake on her birthday. I made this Princess Doll Cake for a 4th Birthday to surprise her.
I used the chocolate cake mix for the cake, bake as directed using the angel cake tube pan and shape it before frosting. For frosting I used 1½L of fresh cream with stabilizer and did not put any sugar to so that it won’t be too sweet. Since I used the tube pan, it is easy to put the doll in the middle.
I removed the skirt of the doll and wrapped it with plastic wrap and also I removed the shoes of the doll to have a better height proportion and just inserted the doll in the hole. The doll’s hair was tied up so that it wouldn't go into the cake frosting.
To decorate the cake, tint ½ of the whipped cream into pink. Cover the cake with white frosting smoothly and draw the pattern on the skirt and start to decorate with pink using floret tip following the pattern of the skirt and then finish the skirt with white cream using floret tip too.
She was speechless when she saw the cake and didn't want to cut it for her guests.
This Rag Doll cake was made for my granddaughter Rachel's 5th birthday which she loved and did not want to cut into it. I made this cake by firstly making 1 large basin cake for the body and 2 small pudding cakes for the head.
I placed the large pudding cake on cake board cut in half, filled with butter cream then covered it in butter cream. I then joined the 2 smaller pudding cakes together with butter cream and again covered them in butter cream.
I then placed fondant over the large basin cake, covering it and letting it drape onto board, then placed a dowel through the body and covered 2 small basin cakes in flesh colored fondant, not worrying about how tidy the back of the head was as I knew the hair would cover this.
I then made 2 arms out of fondant and facial features and feet. Lastly adding brown fondant for the hair and adding bow to both dress and hair.
I'm a fairly new cake decorator and this purple flower Barbie cake is my first time trying something as "complex" as this cake. The mold is a Wilton doll form mold and the flowers are royal icing which were prepped the night before I started to icing the actual cake.
Everything on the cake is edible except for the obvious doll and candles (not pictured). I used the Wilton ready made icing that I had purchased at A.C.Moore at around 16$ and I made the royal icing myself and also colored it myself.

These Princesses Birthday Cake was a cake that a friend asked me to make for her daughter and her daughter's girlfriend. They were sharing a birthday party at a playground and thought it would be nice to have both little girls on the cake. I decided that THEY should be the cake.
It was a edible except for the ribbons and flowers and the little girls were so happy.
