This Princess Ariel Doll birthday cake was for my daughter's 2nd birthday.
The doll is a full Ariel doll bought from Target. I removed her dress and shoes, and wrapped her body in cling wrap, and held her head and hair up while icing inside a small Ziploc bag.
I used 4 round chocolate cakes for her dress, which I stacked and layered with vanilla icing I had tinted pink. I carved the top layer into the cone shape, using a long bread knife. I iced the outside of the cake, and swept the icing up and down to make the skirt look a little more like fabric.
Next I sprinkled the top with dark pink sprinkles and put some pink and white sugar butterflies (store bought) around the skirt for detail (they also helped to cover any holes or crumby bits showing through the icing). I used a small amount of white fondant, rolled out and wrapped around the dolls torso, to make the bodice. If I had had more time, I would have tried maybe doing some puff sleeves or something to give more detail.
I found I didn't need to hollow out the middle of the cake for the doll, I put a long knife into the middle cutting an X shape, but not removing any of the cake. I then just pushed Ariel straight down into place. All I had to do then was neaten her hair and place the candle.
VERY easy cake to decorate. The longest part was baking the 4 cakes as I had to do them all individually, I only had the one tin! My daughter absolutely loved her 'Happy Cake'.
I made this Pretty in Pink Barbie cake for my little girl's 4th birthday. It was a huge success and given results was very easy. I made the candy decorations a few nights before making the cake itself. Made decorations with "orchard" white icing adding color and cookie cutting shapes out( bake in 50C oven for 1.5 hrs). Used a dolly tin for skirt and round cake as base. Both were chocolate as is my daughter's favorite.
I cut dolly skirt into 3 layers (so 4 layers in total with round cake). Cookie cut a hole in top layer to fit dolly in (I had removed legs but you can cookie cut each layer to fit in a whole doll). Made butter icing which went between layers and on exterior of cake. Smoothed icing layer by dragging a piece of card upwards over it then placed cake in fridge for 30mins to set.
I then iced cake again in desired colors and decorated with candy flowers. I made a bodice for doll from "orchards" white icing, cutting into shape on the doll and placed little silver candy balls down back as buttons.
Once doll was dressed I placed her in the hole at top of skirt. I covered gaps with more butter icing and made a sash with icing to finish off. To quote my daughter "BEST CAKE EVER" .
This princess Barbie doll cake is a four layered eggless cake with strawberry and cream filling covered with fresh cream also.
I covered the base with peach and used swirls for the dress. Also used a start tip to fill the dress with stars. Simple decoration but appealed the crowd. I used Wilton's Barbie doll set for baking the cake.
