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....
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.
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.
