My daughter asked for a princess cake for her 2nd birthday. I asked what flavor, and she insisted on "princess" flavor. I decided on champagne cake, since I figure that would be a suitable flavor for a princess. I used the Wilton's Wonder Mold with the brunette doll. I did the hair myself with a yellow ribbon and tied the little rose to her hand. The frosting is homemade butter cream dyed with lemon yellow and just a bit of orange and brown to give it that golden color.
When we brought it out to her, she immediately said "Belle!" and then ran her finger through the frosting and licked it off her hand!

Such a cute story to go along with the cake.

I'd say that princess would have to be some sort of strawberries and champagne flavored cake though.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.

Thanks! I just love how happy it makes my kids when they see their cakes. So much better than paying someone else to do it. Only problem is that as my son gets older, he is  starting to request more complicated things. He said for his next birthday he wants a Lord of The Rings theme with Golum in it....Not sure how I'll pull that one off  Grin

hOW about making the ring cakes and doing a gold fonda ...and then sculpting the figurines out of gum paste or print the pics off the net and put wax paper over them and trace them with frosting and freeze it then you could put them on the rings in different places...

I don't know... that sounds like the easy..(RIGHT whatever easy) way to make it...

This is adorable. When my sister was little my parents made her one of these but when my uncle put her (favorite) barbie in the cake he decided to take her legs off. It kinda ruined the effect when you have to explain to a 3 year old that for her birthday her uncle broke Barbie.
