Once the candy is made it will be fine for even weeks, as long as it doesn't melt. Start early and put the finished product in a covered container

The doll cake can be easy. Also, bake ahead, in case you have any trouble with the cake. Once baked, the cake can be wrapped and frozen until you are ready to decorate.

Check to see that the doll will fit in the cake. I recently used a real Barbie that was too tall the for cake. I fixed it by putting an 8" round under the doll cake so the whole was deep enough to hold the Barbie.

I use a thin knife to remove a small 'core' piece from the cake, then just stuffed the doll gently into the cake. Be careful not to break the cake in half, but icing will cover any small crumbs and breaks.

The dolls are definatly too tall for the wondermold, I've only made one and I made an 8" round for under. Some people use a larger cake underneath but I think it looks like her legs are too short then.
The candy can be made way ahead of time just store it somewhere cool and dry, not the fridge.

They can be placed in the fridge or freezer until they set well enough to unmold but if left in they will get condensation and can get a little funny looking.

The best place is somewhere cool and dry, like a pantry or a cupboard away from the stove and fridge. If they're boxed well you could even stash them in a closet.
