My Neice decided for her 6th birthday that i was going to make her a doll cake Smiley
now i have seen many of these done before and my mother even made one for me. but I love making dresses so i kind of had to over do it Smiley

Step one bake your cake i made one 10 inch round for the base
one 8 inch round and one bowl for the skirt
i used butter-cream icing and home made marshmallow fondant.
found recipe here http://candy.about.com/od/fondantcandyrecipes/r/mm_fondant.htm very very easy ! and you can add flavor to it Smiley even plain tastes WAY better the normal fondant.


bottom round covered with butter cream icing then blue fondant.


Dirty Ice the skirt and let cool if working in the summer Smiley


place your 'underskirt fondant color over the round and smooth gently with hands to cover bumps.


Use fondant to make a bodice upon the doll and place into hole make sure your bodice color matches your top skirt color. Smiley
~Cut a large Cheshire cat smile shape out of your over mid skirt fondant color and drape over skirt around dolls hips
(i used a stamp to get an embossed look into the fondant before draping it on the doll.


repeat last step with top skirt color using a smaller 'smile' cut. dust your embosses with powdered sugar Smiley
add any embellishments you want at this point the doll is done.
