I made this princess cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. She is so into the Disney princesses and couldn't decide on just one.
I made a 14" round base cake and then 4 mini wonder mold cakes for the princess dress bottoms. I used 4 of my daughter's tiny princess dolls instead of doll picks to keep the them looking like the "real" princesses. Cut to fit a dowel that will hold the doll on top and go through the dress cake and bottom layer cake. I stretch wrapped the dowel in between the dolls legs to create on solid doll "pick."
After frosting the bottom layer & the doll dress bottoms, I placed the dress bottoms onto the cake. Decorate the princess tops separately. When ready place the princess "pick" decorated into the dress bottoms already on the cake...voila complete princess. Then finish up the dresses, pipe wording and decorate bottom cake as you wish.
I just finished a Wilton Course I class and I was pretty proud of myself for getting this together.
