Doll Cake

I have fallen in love with Wilton products..........they make cake decorating so easy and thus, lots of fun. My daughters had been asking me to make a doll cake for them ever since they saw it in a cake decorating book. However, I couldn't muster up the courage to bake three separate cakes and then carve them to make the doll's gown, as described in the book. I thought of using a deep Pyrex mixing bowl but was afraid that the cake wouldn't bake evenly.Then one day while browsing through the Wilton website I came across the Wilton Wonder Mold. It was just what I was looking for. This is what I came up with it.


Princess Doll Cake using Wilton Wonder Mold Cake pan

I had rented the pan at my local Bulk Barn but now feel that it's worth buying. It has a heat conducting rod which ensures even baking.The rental pan didn't come with the doll pick. I had to buy it separately. The instructions on the box mentioned that it requires batter for making two 9 inch cakes but my cake didn't come anywhere near the top of the pan, thus leaving me with a very short dress. I later read in reviews that others too had faced this. On the website it's mentioned that it takes 5-6 cups of firm textured batter, so maybe next time I will increase the batter and measure it. My cake took 70 minutes to bake at 350 degrees F. It's a vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream frosting . You can find the recipe in my last post.

I just wish that Wilton makes the doll's face prettier. The ones shown on their website are quite pretty but the ones I found at my local Bulk Barn were quite different. Did you notice the black spot on her teeth......looks like she has a bad cavity..lol.  My daughters loved it anyway, but as usual they just licked the frosting.
