As Doting mum, it has become a usual norm in our house for me to end up making two cakes for my kids birthday, one for the actual birthday and one for the party ( if they happen to come separately, this time there is a small party for the family next week so there is one more cake to come :-) !!). This is the first of the two cakes I made for my darling daughter who is so into dolls and princesses now.
This is my third take on dolls, I did make a doll based cakes for my daughter’s First birthday. It was a toy Doll dressed as bo-peep for her actual birthday and two Barbie dolls dressed in a traditional Half Saree and a Ghagra Choli for the Party. Images and details available on my previous posts on my blog; First Birthday Party and Memories: The making of my barbie doll cake
Two years back it was because I wanted to make it for my daughter, this time around it was because my daughter wanted it :-)…….and Ahh…. she loved it , I think ??, ‘cos she kept saying my doll!!, my cake!! wouldn’t let her brother touch it :-)
I always wanted to make an ALL edible Doll cake, more challenging me thinks, so here goes my first attempt at figurine for a cake and all. The upper body is entirely hand sculpted using gumpaste and I have seen quite a few really successful beautiful ones. I sincerely hope mine is at least close to being one of those too :-)
I loved how Cinderella was sitting in the last pic and I have tried to replicate that but I don’t think my carving was skillful enough to be even close but hey maybe next time ;-)
Thank you so much for looking and for all your lovely support.
