Hi everyone, well it has been forever since i have been on here, and i miss it so much.. My granddaughters 3rd birthday is in may and i would so like to make her a doll cake, but the catch is i bought a doll that is 36 inches tall. Any ideas or suggestions? has anyone made a doll cake that large?? I know with all you wonderful bakers out there someone wil have some suggestions for me..
Although it wasn't as big a doll as that, the way I did mine was to bake rounds the size I required and stacked them, then the very top tier was baked in a bowl to get the right shape so you could try that option or if you have not got a bowl large enough for the top you could carve the top one once stacked to get the right shape.
Then I just piped to shape the skirt into the body of the doll.
Here's mine below
I'd get a different doll for the cake - that's just too big!
Put the doll in a sitting position and put the cake on her lap. She can hold the cake and be the cake stand!
I agree. I would get a different doll. That would be a tremendously large cake! You can buy a Barbie doll for $5 and then give her the larger doll as a gift.
i agree, i think a smaller doll, like a barbie would be more suitable. and keep the big one as a gift
Hi Ladies, well i didn't take anyones advice i just knew i could do this
The doll i had was 32 inces tall, there was 16 inces of cake from her hips to bottom, it took me 10 cake mixes with the extender to make her, she was yellow cake with fillings of strawberry, banana, and pineapple, her dress was all cake except for 3 inces to her waist that was rice crispy treats to mold her waist. We dowled her every 2 layers with carboard in between, and carved her, we made 7, 14 inch rounds and 3 12 inch cakes to make her.
we frosted her the did 13 2 inches layers of fondant to make it lok like ruffles all the way down her dress...
She was FABULOUS!!!
