Doll cakes are a little girl’s dream come true. Imagine a glamorous fashion doll wearing a giant, frothy princess dress. Oh yeah, and the doll’s dress is made of sweet cake and frosting to eat with all your friends! Yes, please – sign me up. Full disclosure: I actually had a doll cake at my bridal shower. One of my sweet and creative friends went to the effort to have a Barbie bride doll as the centerpiece of that party. I wish I had pictures of it to share but this was before these new-fangled, fancy cell phone cameras all the kids have.
Even if a doll cake isn’t quite your style, it’s still fun to admire the amount of craft and detail that goes into making one of these delicious creations. Below I’ve included a round-up of links to some of my favorite doll style cake tutorials. Scroll on down…
Both of my daughters have Fall birthdays a couple weeks apart, so at this time of year I find myself a bit obsessed with cakes – endless searches on Pinterest, tearing pages from magazines. Not to mention getting “artistic direction” from the birthday girls themselves. That’s how I decided to dedicate a whole week to cakes on the blog. Each day we’ll focus on a different cake trend as well as chatting about easy embellishments, creative shortcuts and fun style tips. Let’s get started!
