I've used a ball pan with a 6" or 8" round for the dress but I've also used a Pyrex dish and that's worked fine (no carving!). You may want to turn a few of your oven-safe bowls upside down and see what shape they give you! HTH icon_smile.gif

Betty Crocker website has a how-to video.

I don't know if the link works but hope it helps.

Get the Wilton Wondermold doll comes with the doll and instructions. There's one in my pics to see if you want...

I got lucky and found a wonder mold pan at the D.I for a buck..but it isn't that hard to carve 3 8 inch layers either..takes some frosting build up near the waist. Then just frost and drape a mmf skirt over the whole thing...easy peasy!

skinnymnkx. the covering is fondant. If you watch the tutorial on here for making a wedding dress cake it will help you alot. the bodice is fondant..i used the lace mold press and silver luster dust. The lace is all just fondant in a silicone mold...(gave me an excuse to buy the mold)
