Missing the Best Part

I have to say, my favorite part of making a cake is seeing the reaction of the recipient. Last night (late!) I finished making a Snow White cake for my niece. Her party is this weekend, but we will be away. :-(

So, here's my first attempt at a princess doll cake. (I'm sure they'll be more!)

(I'm a little disappointed that the pearl luster dust on the skirt didn't show up very well, but otherwise, I think she turned out well.)

Beautiful! Far better than many I've seen. What did you bake the skirt in?

I bought the Wilton Classic Wonder Mold pan -- the one basically designed for doll cakes, but useful for other themes, too. You can also use the Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl (, which is the same shape, although then you lose out on the hollow rod that runs down the center of the Wonder Mold and helps cook the center more quickly.
