Happy Birthday Tg Nur Mia Iman

Made this cake for my beloved Mia
How fast time flies she's now 5 years already.
It seem like yesterday that I'm holding her in my arm and now she has growing up to a beutiful child......no matter how she will always be my baby
Ok back to the cake, had promised her that I will make cake for her and last week my project begins....
The cake was red velvet recipe and I modified a little bit just to accommodate the rainbow theme colour and because this the first time I tried making a skirt with this recipe ,the cake was not high enough to essemble it and Alhamdullilah my good baking friend,Zarina has some leftover buttercake and she was kind enough to give to me so that I can stack it on top of my rainbow cake.
I make 2 size cake layer.Bake 4 layers of 7 inch cake and 3 layers of 6 inchs cake and the filling is blueberry and buttercream.Then to secure the cake I had inserted the dowel rod.
This is how I carved the cake to make the doll skirt.After that just decorate it with buttercream.....
My way of decorate the dool skirt is:
1- fill up the buttercream into the piping bag then snip end of the bag.
2-begin from the bottom of the cake board press the icing bag by circling around the cake until it covered the entire cake.
3-then using a small spatula by running edge of spatula from bottom to the top to form folds.
4-insert the doll pick in the cake(the doll may be decorate by using fondant or buttercream) ...for this cake I used fondant to make the bodice.
5-then just use your imiginations to complete the decorations.
