I am wanting to make a doll cake and I wanted to know what type of cake pans does anybody recommend to make the bottom part of the doll with. I have heard that you can use the soccer ball cake pan to make the bottom of the dress but would you have to use another cake pan as well to make the doll the desired height? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. icon_biggrin.gif

I have used stainless steel mixing bowls, the wondermold pan and the betty crocker bake n fill pan. They all work quite well. If you are planning on putting a real barbie in the cake you will likely need to add another round under the dress pan. The last one I made I used a 10" round and decorated it to look like a stage. It is in my pictures if you want to see it.

So I can use any type of stainless steel mixing bowl, etc. Does the baking times vary or are the pretty much the same?

I used my glass pampered chef bowl as well and then an 8" round to add height. Baking time was a little more than an hour and I place my angel food pan core down into my batter as a heating core, which also hollows it out perfectly for the barbie when done cooking icon_smile.gif

It depends on the size of the bowl and how much cake batter you use as to how long the baking takes. but yes pretty much any stainless steel bowl will work. although you should try to find one that has the height and width you would like for the gown.

I've always used the wonder mold pan myself, but I came across this tutorial the other day. She uses 4 six inch cakes and carves - it actually looks pretty easy!

I used a pyrex bowl and was glad that I didn't spend the $ on the wonder mold.

I used the wondermold for my doll cake. I like that it has the baking core that attaches in the middle. That seemed to really help with the baking time compared to when I have just used my pampered chef bowl. It definitely was too short though to put a real doll into. I was using a doll pick, so it didn't matter for me!

I recently made my first doll cake. I used the Wilton mold for it. I do however have a pyrex bowl from Pampered Chef that is shaped exactly like the doll cake mold. I didn't use it bc I was afraid that it would be raw in the middle. I have seen where some people place the baby doll cake on an 8" round as well. My only advice would be to make sure you use cake release or some other method to keep the cake from sticking. Good luck.

Oh yeah, I used the doll torso on a stick that came with the bowl but I wish I had used a real doll (and wrap the bottom half with saran wrap).
