I have been wanting to do a doll cake so this was a perfect opportunity to do so! 

This cake was made using a Wilton's cake pan especially for doll cakes.  I made a vanilla cake with homemade strawberry frosting.  The cupcakes were also vanilla, but had homemade vanilla buttercream frosting.

I made the flowers and leaves a few days ahead of time.  I got to use my new fondant drying trays that allow you to dry the flowers in a curvy shape.

After adding the white fondant to the cake, I made a small hole and poked the doll into the top of the cake. 

For the body of the dress, I just cut out a piece of fondant and wrapped it around the doll's bodice and sealed it in the back with a touch of water.  The wings just pressed right onto the fondant.                                                                                                                            
Then, I started laying the leaves onto the cake starting on the bottom and working my way up.  I then added some frosting "grass" around the bottom and the flowers as the finishing touch. 

I also did the grass on the cupcakes along with some fondant flowers so that everything matched.  I'm really happy with how she turned out as it was exactly what I was aiming for. 

P.S.  This cake/cupcakes took about 10 hours total.
