  • 4 Cups White Icing
  • 1/2 Cup Dark Blue Icing
  • 3 Cups Blue Icing
  • 2 Cups Light Blue Icing

  • Royal Blue Color
  • Violet Color
  • Piping Tip #2

  • Plastic Couplers without Notch
  • 18” Decorating Bags
  • Cake Decorator’s Icing Scraper
  • Step 1

    Mix 2 cups of dark blue, 6 cups of blue and 3 cups of light blue icing. To get a dark blue icing, mix white icing with 80% royal blue color and 20% violet color. For the blue, mix white icing with royal blue color until it matches the bodice of the doll.  To make light blue icing, mix 90% royal blue color and 10% violet color until it matches the sleeves of the doll.

  • Step 2

    Cinderella Doll Cake stack cakes

    Stack three 8” round cake layers on a 10” Round Cake board. Fill with white icing between each layer.

     

    Tip: Make icing the layers easy. Place white icing in a large pastry bag and use a 2 ¼” Wide Cake Icer Tip #790 to apply to each layer.

  • Step 3

    Cinderella Doll Cake height

    Using the doll from the Disney Princess Cinderella Signature Doll DecoSet® Cake Topper, measure the doll at the side of the cake. The top layer of the cake should end at Cinderella’s hips. If the cake is too low, add another layer. 

  • Step 4

    Cinderella Doll Cake insert doll

    Insert the Cinderella doll in the center of the top of the cake, feet first until she reaches her hips. Do not remove the plastic covering over her legs and skirt as this protects the doll. 

  • Step 5

    Cinderella Doll Cake shape dress

    Using a serrated knife carve the stacked cakes to create the shape of the skirt. Cut starting at the top layer and about a 45 degree angle.

  • Step 6

    Press the cake down with your hands to make sure the cake crumbs are adhered to the cake to make base icing easier and more crumb free.

  • Step 7

    Cinderella Doll Cake base ice the dress

    Using the blue icing that matches the bodice, base ice the cake with 2 ¼” Wide Cake Icer Tip #790. Smooth with a Cake Decorator’s Icing Scraper.

  • Step 8

    Cinderella Doll Cake create pleats

    Using a straight spatula, start at the base of the dress and smooth upward toward the doll to create pleats in the icing for the dress.

  • Step 9

    Cinderella Doll Cake hem of dress

    Pipe a wide light blue band around the base of the cake using Basket Weave Tip #897. 

  • Step 10

    Cinderella Doll Cake dress ruffles

    Add light blue ruffles using Large Rose Tip #127 to the base of the cake on the sides and back. Leave the front of the cake open. Use a wavy, up and down pattern. Create two rows of ruffles aligning the ups ad downs in each row. 

  • Step 11

    Using a spatula, start at the front center of the Ariel doll and trace a line that goes down and each side of the cake and back up the waist of the doll creating the pattern to follow when piping the peplum. 

  • Step 12

    Cinderella Doll Cake peplum piping

    Continuing with light blue icing use XL Piping Tip #805 and pipe the peplum by starting with the lowest layer. Follow the line you just traced and pipe a bead ribbon. Then, continue adding loops inside the previous one until you reach the doll’s waist. Don’t worry about perfection at the waist, that will be finished in an upcoming step.

  • Step 13

    Cinderella Doll Cake waist

    Using Rose Tip #103, add a light blue band around the waist of the doll to give the peplum a finished look and make the doll a seamless part of the cake.

  • Step 14

    Cinderella Doll Cake Dress Details

    With dark blue icing, use Rose Tip #104 to add a dark blue top ruffle to the dress. Starting at the front of the cake at the doll’s waist, pipe a flat ribbon to the top of the first layer of ruffles. Add a dark blue ruffle to the top of the layers of light blue ruffles on around the base of the cake and then back up the other side to the waist. 

  • Step 15

    Cinderella Doll Cake small details

    Pipe the swirly details to the base of the skirt with light blue icing and Piping Tip #2.
