the doll cake

It isn't easy to get the facial expression right 
on a cake. 


One would wish her to look sweetly amused 
rather than naive and slightly defiant

[Pink Daughter turns 7]

but Pink Daughter was uncritical, 
and named her cake after herself.

  4. Hello Mise:
    Gosh, Mise, you are a miracle worker in fondant and Smarties. Who could believe that eggs, flour,margarine and sugar could be transformed into this brilliant confection?

    Happy Birthday PD!!!

    And, for your next trick?.....

  5. A Smartie dress! Very very avant garde of you and Pink daughter is smart to claim it as her own self. I'll bet it was delicious. The photos are gorgeous Mise. It is lovely to see the smiley happy faces and those pink roses are quite beautiful too.

  7. Wonderful stuff. Mums are grand they can always come up with the goods when the occasion requires it. Lovely to see your daughters smiley faces. I miss my two being excited by birthdays.

  10. Happy Birthday to Pink Daughter. I think you will get urgent orders for that dress now. (Her expression may reflect some slight trepidation about which bit of her was going to be eaten first.)

  11. It's sooo cute.

    Reminds me of the lambie cakes my grandmother would make for us with coconut fleece and gumdrop eyes. Said cake never wore clever candy jewelry.

  12. Hurrah for being a hero! I do like her shoe laces. Were there off cuts to feast on also?

    1. Very few offcuts, Amee, a major design flaw.

  15. Only the eternal patience of the Irish and the ability to crochet would allow one to make such a doll cake.

    Happy Birthday to a living doll.

  17. Oh to have a Pink Daughter to make cakes for - boys' cakes just aren't as exciting and pretty!

  19. Sweet amusement in the face of pending decapitation seems a little much to ask don't you think!

    Brilliant Mise!

  20. Aww - makes a nice change from those dolls which creep up on... no. Not the time or the place. Lovely doll cake.

  21. I'm concerned about the bulging triceps on your your cake Mise. Have you and the cake been working-out?
    And the very best wishes in pink to your daughter! xx

  23. Perfection Mise! No greater love hath a mother than to bake a birthday cake from scratch. Hope it was a day swathed in pink and happiness. Meredy xo

  24. Bursting with personality--the cake (if such a thing is possible) and the girls! Such fun and love. Those roses are gorgeous.

  25. Hi Mise, and many, many happy returns of the day to pink daughter. I hope that she had the BEST day. I'm sure that she did with a cake like that. It's brilliant and far, far better than the one of a naked lady that I made for my husband once !! I think that you win, hands down, in the cake making stakes. XXXX

  29. That girl will go far.....very far. Happy Birthday to Miss Gorgeous PD. Son #3 aged 32 was only reminiscing the other day about the swimming pool cake I slaved over for his 8th birthday. They never forget (or in his case forgive, a Mother's birthday cake failures). You passed with flying colours.

  35. I think DollCake (what a good puppy name!) looks exceedingly smart and sure of herself...with a touch of the Irish humour coursing through her sugary crumb...she's delightful...as are Pink and Blue!!
    Many Happy Belated Birthday Wishes To The Very Sweet Birthday Girl! ♥

  36. A belated Happy Birthday to your Pink Daughter. I must say that's one impressive cake (naive expression aside) - the floral details on her socks are most becoming.

  37. That cake is so adorable - well done! I'm sure it was not an easy thing to do. I hope she had a fun day.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I, for one, support the the naive and slightly defiant. Gosh the photos look lovely. My 7 yearold wants a brown cake with a brown and white yin yang symbol (charming, of course, in its own right but its awfully refreshing to see the pretty colors)
