Girls Barbie Doll Cake

by Gemma Estall
(Glasgow)



We are a family run Catering & Cake business, and we were asked to create a girl's Barbie doll cake for a 5 year olds birthday. This was our first attempt, and I think it came out pretty well.

We used a 7 inch round cake tin and a small pudding bowl; this was so that the Barbie dress didn’t look too fat. The cake was decorated using white and pink sugar paste.

I made this teddy bear cake. I baked 2 round pans for the head and body. I used cream cheses for the whole cake. Then I used coconut for the fur. I used color dye to change the coconut to brown. I used fondant for the ears, bow, nose and paws.

You are going to need a cake baked in a bowl shape. I used a stainless steel bowl you buy at local stores. For the bottom i used a 12x 15 pan but I have used a smaller base before. I used whipped icing and just added icing sugar to it to make it more firm, then colored it with food coloring. Insert the doll wrapped in saran wrap into cake before icing then fill in around it. To get the sides smooth I used a piece of computer paper and started at the bottom and pulled it to the top to make the icing nice and smooth. Filled in around the doll with icing and iced the bottom the same color.I used the shell tip to create the edging. Make sure to put dowel under the tier stands to prevent it from sinking. Hope this helps someone. Have fun :)

Genoese sponge cake with butter icing and rasperry jam as filling,decorated with fondant icing and crimpers used for the edging. The decorations are all in fondant icing as is the covering on the board. This was for a young girl of 22 who loves the bingo,hence the 2 little ducks.

Natalie's Amazing Castle Cake

by Mindie Fish
(West Liberty, OH)



I bought the Wilton "romantic castle set" because my then 2 year old daughter saw it in the store and fell in love. I had to admit it looked cool so I bought it... I had never made a decorated cake before (and definitely NOT of this magnitude but I thought lets give it a go!!) The only issue I faced was that it wasn't going to be big enough... so I came up with the idea of only using part of the castle set and setting it up as a story book idea. I used a large 2 layered sheet cake and then used my tiered rounds (there were two layers to each tier) I knew from my research that the flowers were the hardest part... I had never piped before so I set out watching videos on youtube of how to even start.. I went to the store bought a beginner set and started working... then something AMAZING happened... they were easy to make and they set up in only one day and were like a dried candy (I used butter cream to pipe them, and the tubed color icing you buy in the store... same results from both) The day before the party I started baking.. I admit I used boxed cake mixes... it made my life more simple on a daunting and what I was sure would be scary adventure of this castle cake. From all my research about making cakes I learned terms like "cake leveler" and I put it to use... the entire time I was baking cakes ( I used 9 cake mixes!!!) I was also making all my icing... to say my kitchen was a hot mess is an understatement. after I let each cake cool I began the stacking, doweling, cake boarding event... I had a heck of the time with the wooden dowels... I couldn't get them to cut so I ended up out of pure desperation using plastic disposable straws that I just cut. Surprisingly enough, they worked fabulously. Now after I got the sheet cake done, I attempted to move it... BIG mistake.. that thing was sooo heavy and I hadn't even put the castle on it yet... I actually had to use a 2 inch thick piece of plywood to carry it. I leveled, iced, doweled, and stacked the castle cake and put it on a cake board and then also on a piece of plywood to transport it to the church where we were having her party. Once we got it to the church I began decorating, I wanted to make it look like a moat on the back side of the castle with a flowered yard up the front and a cobble stoned walk way. The moat, and yard I used icing (all buttercream) and my pre-made flowers... but for the cobble stoned walk I used ground up Oreos and chocolate chips. I used icing to level out the different towers and to smooth the chocolate I just wet my spatula and it smoothed right out (the color changes to a lighter color but dries the same, I promise) I definitely recommend trying this cake out... I had so much fun doing it and actually found a hobby that I am in love with, with even a few of my own trade secrets that I shared with you. I hope it helps and happy baking!!!

Portal of Power

by Jem Fry

Portal of Power Cake

Portal of Power Cake

The cake was a white-iced sponge cake bought from a shop. The birthday boy is a big fan of the Skylanders video game, so the cake is designed on the "Portal of Power" from the game.

The grey icing was blended white and black rolled thin and wrapped around the cake. Another layer if grey icing was added about an inch from the cake's base and slightly folded over on top to form the central circle.

Eight strips of grey were placed vertically at equal distances around the base of the cake, rising up the walls and slightly extending into the central white circle.

The stone effect was created by crinkling up some greaseproof paper and pressing it into the icing. The brick effect was made by cutting into the icing with a sharp knife.

The heiroglyphics were carved out with a sharp knife and then filled with white icing and pressed into shape.

Some paint-on shimmer icing was brushed onto the top to make the swirls and imitate the game's lighting effects.

To finish off a thin strip of bright green ribbon was wrapped around the base and one of the Skylanders figures placed on the Portal of Power.

Princess Doll Cake

Princess Doll Cake

This Princess Cake was for a 2 year old. I use the Moist Chocolate Cake for 11" Round from this site and poured it into a 7" bowl and 8" Round. Once baked I torted, filled and trimed to desired shape. Covered and decorated with homemade rolled fondant. I personally thought the cake didn't need the stars but the mother had requesed stars and since it was a 2 year old I figured - why not?

Half Pipe Cake

by Flora Santiago
(Studioi City, CA)



Half pipe cake I made this weekend. Chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting. I baked the cake in two 11" x 13" cookie sheets. Used 1 layer for the bottom and stacked 3 additonal layers on either end. Shaped the stacks to blend into the bottom layer, cover the cake in MMF (marshmallow fondant). Sculpted the figurine out of MMF as well as the skate board. Cake serves 20-30 people. For more uniques cakes like this, please visit www.sweetavenuela.com.
