I got to make my very first doll cake!!
When I was little, I remember my mom making doll cakes for my birthday, so I’ve always wanted to make one (difficult as a mother of boys!)
Lucky for me, my friend’s daughter requested an Elsa doll cake for her 4th birthday!
After spontaneously breaking out in “Let It Go” over the course of a week, it was time to get to work.
Here are a few Elsa process shots, as she gets a fondant mini dress and then a lovely Rich Chocolate Cake skirt.
The trickiest part of the cake was her translucent cape.
The solution came from Cakes ROCK!, who modified Imaginarium Cake’s gelatin technique to make a sheer cape. I placed a fondant pale teal cape, imprinted with snowflakes (I used a clean rubber stamp) to give the detailing of Elsa’s cape.
Then the gelatin cape gave it a sheer, sparkly look. I made my cape on a silicone baking mat, so I ended up with a bit of texture and beading which I loved! Doesn’t it look like icicles on the edges?
With an Elsa this pretty, I feel it’s perfectly all right to belt out a few verses of “Let It Go!”
