Hi all in CC land!
I just got an order for a dress cake, but it's for a grown-up, so I'm thinking to use a cookie as the torso instead of a doll. I believe I've seen some cupcakes like that. What would be a great sugar cookie recipe to stand firm?
I have done a few of these and I make the top look like a dress dummy.
I use a barbie doll to make a torso mold using silicon putty. Then I fill the mold with gumpaste, remove it when it is formed, insert a lolly stick and allow the torso to dry. When it is done I insert it into the dress and make a bodice to attach the dress form to the skirt.
