Send-a-cake: mini doll cake

I just love send-a-cake requests! Today I sent off this cute mini doll cake as a surprise for the birthday girl from someone special who couldn’t be with her on her special day..I love making people happy and making relationships stronger ๐Ÿ˜‰

I purposely make the writing in a slightly darker shade to make it subtle rather than contrasting colors as I want eyes to focus on the doll cake, yet make it a personalised cake especially for the birthday girl..it is special but not too loud..I think..LOL

hannah montana guitar cake

mr amirย requestedย a hannah montana themed cake for her daughter, and I offered him a hannah montana guitar cake instead! i just love cake carving..have toย seizeย this opportunity of a cake project! ๐Ÿ˜‰

went to the baking supplies shop to find the largest cake board, and all they have was a 13×18 board..ah well, that’ll just have to do ๐Ÿ˜€

baked a chocolate cake in a 9×13 pan n cut it out into a guitar silhouette

Barbie doll cake

I’ve always wanted to make a Barbie doll cake..but I don’t know who to make it for..huhu..thanks to my regular customer rafidah, I get a chance to make this beautiful cake. To me, the idea of a doll cake is not just the cake shaped like a doll, but giving the doll as a gift to the celebrated birthday girl as well ~ double joy! ๐Ÿ˜€

Rafidah requested the cake to be decorated pink and purple..I choose a Barbie doll with her dress readily “printed” on her body, so that I won’t have to put buttercream on her body..that would be messy and kind a ruin the beautiful doll..hehe..I had fun mixing the colors as I tried to match the colors on the doll itself..the colors turned out to be very unique and pretty ๐Ÿ˜‰ talk about customized colors!

Here’s the Barbie doll cake fully decorated. Since Barbie has very long legs, I had to put not 4, but 5 layers of cake to hold her! I didn’t use the special Barbie “skirt” pan, just your regular round cake pan in different sizes and a small bundt pan for the top of the skirt and a bit of cake carving ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you so much rafidah. Your order really made my day ๐Ÿ˜€
