DD, who's turning 6 wants a doll cake for her bday. Do I just fill it like a regular cake, ie cut in half, dam, and fill? How many servings should I expect?

You don't fill the doll cake, it would cause it to be unstable.

It makes about 12-15 servings.

I've only made one doll cake and I have no idea what everyone else does. But I can tell you what I did. I don't have the doll pan for one so I baked....wait see if I can remember right.....I used a pyrex bowl oh yes, then I baked 2 8" rounds. I placed them all together and carved to the right shape, then, I took the pyrex cake and torted it and filled with buttercream and placed this on a cardboard. Then, the bottom 2 8" rounds were filled with buttercream and placed on my board and doweled and placed the top pyrex cake on top and crumcoated and then final coated with buttercream. Do you follow? So, it's a 2 tier cake! Easier to cut in my opinion! You can check it out in my photos.

I've torted and filled both my doll cakes and they were fineicon_smile.gif I just didn't fill them too much and with the hole in the middle of the cake it's a bit trickier so I would just use a very thick ganache filling rather than a pie filling or something too liquidyicon_smile.gif

I made 3 doll cakes back when I first started. None were filled. There's plenty of frosting on the outside of the cake. Not really any different proportionally than with a single layer sheet cake.

Ok, thanks guys. I guess I'll fill it, if I want to, but with something gooey. She's asked for chocolate, so thick ganache would be no problem. It looks like I'll add a base cake for more servings anyway, so I'll see.
Thanks again!
