Hola.La muñeca está preciosa. Yo adoro hacer muñecas también, son una obra de arte. Felicitaciones.Un besitoWynyhttp://corazonyazucar.blogspot.com/
Lovely! Any little girls dream cake!
So very pretty, and what lovely smooth buttercream! Are the flowers buttercream too, or are they your "famous" RI roses? IKWYM, I have a Belle Doll Cake order coming up that I'm excited about.
My mom used to make me a barbie cake for most of my birthdays. I've got fond memories with those.
What a beautiful shade of purple! And your icing is SO soft and smooth!
Loren, this is just beautiful! I love the colors and the dress details are stunning!! Fabulous! Doll/dress cakes must be on people's minds lately - I just did one for a bridal shower today (of course, I had to chop off the doll's head and arms, which made my two boys laugh)!Your cake is amazing!!
Ahhh!! Loren!! I LOVE THIS!! I almost cried when I saw this post!! My grandma that passed away a few years ago used to make these for the girls in our family, not for any special occasion, just because. And I was able to get the last one she ever made...it was a pink dress and she used the top of a yogurt container, frosted/decorated it and then attached it to the barbies head so she had a matching hat! I WISH so bad I had a picture, but your picture brought back great memories!! ~Ka'ala
Stunning as always!
So pretty! I love the ruffles and roses!
I always wanted one of these! Am I too old? Gorgeous!
did you say amateur baker?... what you're doing is very nice.
Wow! So impressive! Is the base real cake including the doll's skirt? Would you consider making a tutorial on how to make this. I'm sure a lot of people would benefit and be happy to learn, including me. Thank you.
Thanks Ela! The pink base is a 10" round cake, iced smooth in buttercream. The dress is first iced with lavender buttercream and then I used the "Viva Paper Towel" Method to get it smooth and flawless. Then I used a Wilton tip #104 to make the layers of ruffles, starting from the bottom and moving up. You'll find a tutorial on how to make my royal icing ribbon roses here on my blog. The leaves are a tip #352. It's really not that difficult...anyone could do it! Good luck! :o)
Thanks, Loren! Follow-up questions, what pan did you use to bake the skirt and what kind of cake did you use? Is that the buttercream recipe of Wilton? Thank you.
Hi Ela! I used a Wilton Wondermold pan for the skirt and Sharon Zambito's buttercream recipe. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions! :o)
