A Doll for my Little Princess.......

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 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; First Birthday Party   and  Memories: The making of my barbie doll cake

At that time 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 ?????

I always wanted to make an  ALL edible Doll cake, more challenging me thinks, so here goes my first attempt figurine 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 :-). Thank you so much for looking and for all your lovely support.

Memories : The Making of my first Barbie Doll Cakes.......

This is not a tutorial, just photos of the different elements at different stages of the cakes I made that week in 2011 soon after I started out on my cake journey.  Recently unearthed these images and thought I will share them with you :-)

It was Dolls overload and I don't think my daughter even appreciated it considering it was her first birthday, It was more for me than her ha...ha :-) .Three Dolls .... One for her actual birthday and Two for her birthday party.

Ended up making a Ben 10 cake for my son too so that he doesn't feel left out and
A cake for my Dad with him and his grand kids sitting on a sofa ( my first figurines, to tell you the truth they didn't look that great !!) which came two days after my daughter's. So very glad that I made one for my Dad because that became the LAST cake I will ever make for him .  I miss him so much!!!

Full detail of the birthday Party can be found in one of my first posts on my blog : 1st Birthday Party
