A Piece of Cake, Anyone?

Well, after much planning, I decided to create a doll cake. I was surprised I even thought of doing it. O.o

I have always been afraid of wasting clay, so I try to save every little scrap and make sure nothing gets mixed and ruined. A cake seemed like too much clay, and if I messed up on it, well, let’s just say a cake doesn’t exactly use a little clay.

I looked up a few tutorials, (They were for mini, mini cakes, much smaller that AG doll cakes would be) and it looked pretty easy. Easy as pie. Or cake. XD

Ok, ok! πŸ™‚ Here is the whole cake.

It only took me about an hour and a half to create it, bake it and glaze it. If I hadn’t had the white frosting pre-made, it would have taken a little longer.

I have more pictures for the Etsy listing. Grace and Pippa were chosen to pose with it, and I secretly think they sneaked a few licks of frosting. πŸ™‚
