Cool Homemade Cinderella Cake Using Wilton’s Wonder Mold

For my daughter’s 4th birthday, she requested a Cinderella cake. I looked all over the place, but couldn’t find one that I just loved. I bought a Wilton “Classic Wonder Mold” cake pan (where the dress of the doll is the cake). I thought it would be too difficult to decorate the doll torso that comes with the cake, not to mention fix the hair, so I decided to purchase a Cinderella barbie doll at Wal-Mart for $10.

Another good thing was that she would get a doll out of it too. I used two Pillsbury white cake mixes (in my opinion, they make the best cake if you don’t want to do it from scratch). I then went to work on the doll. I took a seam ripper to the dress where the torso meets the skirt, and removed the skirt of the dress (later sewed it back together). I used the Wilton decorator’s icing recipe, which you can find on the website, and tried to match the blue icing as close as possible to the color of the dress.

Down at the bottom where the dress is white, I started there first. Then I piped a blue line and filled the rest of cake in with a metal decorator spatula. I just kept smoothing and smoothing (dipping the metal spatula in either milk or warm warm water) until I got the results I wanted for the dress.

Then taking the Cinderella doll, I stuck it down into the cake, and fixed the ruffles on her dress. I then sprinkled edible shimmer flakes on the dress. My daughter put her Cinderella dress up clothes on and thought it was the best birthday ever!
