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.
