Hello and welcome to my post for the second doll cake I made this weekend for my niece’s baptism. I made her a Sleeping Beauty doll cake with lemon cake and lemon-basil frosting. It took me almost 4 hours to make the entire cake because of the details I was incorporating in it. At first, I wasn’t sure on how to decorate her and felt discouraged because I didn’t like what I was seeing. But after adding details to her, I started to finally love her design. I decided to create a baroque style skirt.
Like the Elsa doll cake, I followed the instructions I used for the Sailor Moon doll cake for the base and added an extra round 8″ layer. I dug a hole using a serrated knife and spoon so that I can put the doll in.
For the baroque details, I used Wilton’s Baroque Fondant mold. Make sure to use cornstarch so that the fondant will not stick on the mold.
During the reception, I got a ton of compliments on how pretty the cake was. The kitchen staff even thought that the cake was a part of the decoration. And now people are asking me if I bake for a living, if I could make their daughter’s birthday cakes and even got a couple asking me to make their wedding cake. It was an awesome experience because I never thought that people would really love my creations.
