Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made four 9 inch layers and another layer in a metal bowl for the top of her dress. I fortified the layers with straws and cake boards. I'm glad I did, because when the fondant was applied, it was very heavy! Cut a hole in each layer and board to put the doll in. Then the fun part! Decorating! It was the first one of these that I have made and had some trouble with the fondant . It was a hot, humid day so put the air on and it worked beautifully!
