I want to make a barbie doll cake.
I have the wondermold that comes with a pick.
I want to use a real doll. I think it would be nice for the birthday girl to get the doll as a gift.
I bought the doll, but now I notice the doll is taller than the cake mold.
Did anyone here use a real doll and would like to share ideas ?

I've not made one with a full doll before, but I imagine you could add a round layer under the wonder mold cake to give it extra height.

Good luck!

I used a real doll for my daughter's cinderella cake. I added a 9" round under the wondermold for the height. I also carved a hole through the cakes to place the doll in and also wrapped the legs in saran wrap. Hope that helps.

A lot of people use a round underneath (I forget if it's an 8 or 9-inch). Perfect height! Just don't forget to carve out a hole for her legs or the cake will break apart.

That's how I did the one in my pics.

Good luck!

PLEASE remember to wrap the legs in plastic wrap!!!!

If you don't your cake will taste of doll... Don't ask me how I know that. icon_lol.gif

Do you use something special to make the whole through the cake or you just carve it with a knife ??

I just used a bread knife to carve out the middle of mine.

I watched a video on u-tube where they used a layer and also cut the bowl shape cake in layers. They cut a hole in the middle of each layer with a round cookie cutter, filled the layers and stacked before icing. It made for clean uniform size hole for the doll.

I use a 4", 6" and 8" cake stacked and carved. That wondermold makes the cake all dry and crusty IMO. If there is a little hip left, I just cover that with icing. I also do the bodice in fondant, so I can go a little lower with that. Or if they need more servings I add a 10" round and ice it green and she's standing on grass. I love doll cakes_ they're so cute! I think its because I had one when I was 3 or 4- like a hundred years ago....

Now I have another question.
The wonder mold says 2 layer cake mix.
How much batter is a 2 layer cake mix??
I bake my cakes from scrath.
Do you know how many cups this is ??[/quote]

My instructions that came with the mold, say 5 1/2 to 6 cups of batter. Hope that helps.

I've done it (have a few in pix...) You can use a single layer round cake underneath to give more room for her legs..and either carve it in as part of the dress OR make it just look like a "stand" for the "doll". (See my valentine one...)
