Cake Fairy Tales

Life's better with cake and a sprinkle of fairy dust

Princess Doll Birthday Cake


Sorry about the fuzzy picture! Our kitchen (which came with the place) has the most horrible down-lighting imaginable, casting hideous shadows everywhere, especially on tall cakes. Taking pictures of cakes in the evenings can be a real pain, with shadows everywhere. I’ve read articles that teach you how to take good pictures of cakes at home, but most of them involve rolling out huge sheets of vanguard sheet/ canvas/ foam boards to reflect the light back onto the subject, and I really can’t bring my lazy self to faff with around with those.

The doll is made from two 5-inch chocolate cakes stacked together and carved, sitting atop a 7-inch carrot cake. I used a Wilton princess doll pick for the body of the doll. Does anyone else, besides me, feel that these dolls have REALLY BAD HAIR?
