I have the wilton wonder mold for a doll skirt, but have yet to use it. The doll torso/head that was given to me is pretty rough looking. Should I buy another one of those or can you actually stick a whole doll down in the cake?

I use Barbie dolls in mine. I just snap their legs off and use the torso and head part of the doll. Personally, I think an actual Barbie doll is much nicer than those pic dolls. I find Barbie dolls on clearance and buy them to have on hand.

To answer your question actual Barbie doll, with her legs is too tall for the wonder mold cake. You either need to bake another cake to go "underneath" the wonder mold cake (ex: 8" cake), or do away with the Barbie's legs. That is why I snap the Barbie's legs off and just use the upper part of her body.

I use Barbie dolls as well. The ones I use have the twistable waist. I break it off there and insert a dowel for support into the bottom of the doll. These dolls are cheaper and more attractive than the Wilton picks.

In my opinion, the birthday girl is much happier pulling an entire Barbie out of the cake than just the torso, and real Barbies are nicer than the picks. But, as the previous posters mentioned, the wonder mold pan is too short for an actual Barbie. I now bake a two-layer 8" or 9" round cake to go under the wonder mold, cut a hole through the middle of the entire cake, and the Barbie ends up going almost to the bottom. You'll want to wrap the Barbie's legs so that they don't touch the cake (Press N' Seal works well). And, since it ends up basically being a two-tier cake, you might want to consider support. Good luck!

I do what mfoxx does...I use the whole doll and just put a 2 layer cake under the wonder mold cake. Then the birthday girl gets to keep the doll!

Use the barbie doll, it would be much better for the birthday girl to also get a toy! icon_smile.gif
