I agree with other reviewers that this recipe needs to be "tweaked". Use a decorator tip to make the skirt as fancy as you like and decorate the top of the doll for the top of the dress also.

Decorate the skirt with icing tinted any color or use more than one color. Invert on cake plate with widest part of cake on the bottom. Bake 50-60 minutes or until cake tester inserted into center comes out clean. Pyrex glass mixing bowl with shortening and dust with flour.The icing can be piped on to make it look like a fancy dress. Dealing with 6 different colored cake batters….

I never knew how much work she put into it!

It’s hard to find but we use it all the time in banana/strawberry parfaits!

I hope you’ll be back again this week with some more of you great ideas. Hopefully she wants a doll dress birthday cake for at least a few more years!

I am absolutely thrilled with the way the cake turned out!

Apparently, it is not a birthday if there is not cake.

You can see it's till a little oozy right in the center.
