Serve this fairy-tale cake at a birthday celebration, and your child and her guests are sure to have a ball. You can find cake dolls at most party or cake decorating stores for about $3.
Stack and lightly frost the two round cakes and then the dome cake (flat side down) on a serving plate to form a skirt.
After the frosting on the cake firms up (you may have to chill the cake for a while), tint the remaining frosting with food coloring and spread it on the upper two thirds of the skirt.
Pipe on decorative gel icing trim. Then press the waist of the cake doll into the center of the cake.
Dress her in a frosting bodice, and she's ready to make her debut at the party. Serves 16 to 18.
