Totally cute I love it. I love the texture on the orange layer - I saw that rolling pin and I want to get it now! It that layer cake or fake - I have to do one of these soon so any pointers on construction would be appreciated!! Great work!

Where did you get your Dora? Did you make her, or is she a figurine?

SLK Says... 9 years ago

Gosh guys! Your making me blush. I saw that rolling pin this week and I "had to get it!" The orange layer is fake - the rest is cake. I found that with the textured rolling pin you have to push pretty hard - and I'm not so coordinated with it yet so I decided to use it on the fake layer. I got a ton of ideas from "Cakes to Dream On" by Colette Peters - got it for mothers day. I have a butterfly cookie cutter and I used my shaping foam and ball tool to shape it.

This is an incredible cake. Every detail is perfectly executed. Congratulations. I am sure you're going to get more referrals from this cake.

SLK Says... 9 years ago

Thanks again. As for your construction question cakecre8tor - I tried Colette Peters system and cut foamcore boards down - instead of using cardboard circles. It was a bit more expensive - but the boards worked great. Very sturdy, did not get "soggy" for lack of a better word. If you are looking for more specific details - I'd be happy to share - just pm me. Overall- this cake was a lot easier to do than I thought it would be. I made a diagram and really mapped it out - colors and sizes - that...

SLK Says... 9 years ago

Yes I did, I did a crumb coat first.

KHalstead Says... 9 years ago

okay, first of all this cake is TOTALLY awesome.....second of all....I was wondering the same thing about Dora did you mold her, is it a toy and I'm kinda freakin out cuz I see her pants have that spiral pattern like the middle tier......did you mold her??????????

SLK Says... 9 years ago

Dora's a toy - got it at walmart for $5. I made her a cute little mmf skirt and used my new textured rolling pin on it - I love that rolling pin, got it from Michaels for $9.99 - it's made by wilton. I gave her a skirt because I taped two dowl rods to her legs to stick into the cake. I bought another doll that I am planning on making a gumpaste mold out of so I can try making her completely from mmf next time. Thought I stated that before, but now see that it didn't fit in my message - (sorry kima...

MJsmom Says... 9 years ago

OH, WOW, SLK! This is AWESOME!!! You've really outdone yourself, girl! Thanks for the inspiration :)

JulieB Says... 9 years ago

Girl, you make phenomenal cakes. I'm in awe.

jessireb Says... 9 years ago

Great Looking cake! Did you use buttercream under the mmf?

pilesoflaundry Says... 8 years ago

It doesn't need improvement, it's awesome! My 4 year old loves this cake, I'm not that good yet to even try an attempt though lol!

doofusmongerbeep Says... 9 years ago

Awesome cake and great colors. I especially love the butterflies!

SLK Says... 9 years ago

Thanks so much. When I was planning it and picked out the colors my husband said "do you really think those colors are going to work together?" So, needless to say I was a little nervous. But when it all came together, I was very happy. I have a feeling this will become a popular one for me - now I just need to figure out what to chareg for this when I do another one.
