I am making a Disney princess cake (similiar to this one: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-photo_1382120.html) and need to know how to keep the fondant from slipping. Since the doll will go through the cake and fondant there will be a hole at the top of the fondant and I'm afraid that it will cause the fondant to start sliding down the cake.

Any suggestions on how to prevent this? Am I worrying about nothing?

Thanks for your help!

Generally speaking, the doll isn't a whole doll, only the torso, head and arms on a pick. Wilton sells them for just this purpose.

I'm making a Princess Peach cake for my DD's b'day next weekend, and I'll be using the Wonder Mold for the dress, and a blonde Doll pick for the top. I think that if you spread piping gel in the general area you want to attach the fondant to (and I'm assuming you mean to the torso), attach fondant and then wipe off the excess gel, that might work. I wouldn't worry about whether or not the face matches exactly with whichever Disney princess you're making ... it's the dress that defines who they are.

Good luck!
