Rated 4 out of 5 by Monique Beuree from I've made two different princesses from this mold for my daughter. The first one was a Belle cake, and the second one was a Cinderella cake. It was alot of fun to make. I used fondant to decorate the dress and bodice, and it was my first time using fondant. For Cinderella, I used a barbie Cinderella doll, and inserted her into the cake wrapped in clear wrap, but unfortunately she was too tall for the mold, so I had to make another round cake, and stack it underneath the mold. For the Belle cake, I just used the doll supplied from the pan. Both were fun to make. So many ways to decorate this cake, it's just fun to play around with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pegthecakelady from I've made this cake a few time's and it's alway's been a fun cake to do and it's not that hard.The last one I just made was for a little girl's 4th Birthday.She wanted Cinarella.I got a Cindarella doll and used for the doll part and the gown was buttercream icing and I used rolled fondant for her sleeves and for the part around her waist.Everyone just loved it!!The only hard part was that the doll was taller than the cake,so trying to figure out how to make the waist look right took awhile.I leared that rice kricpie treat's and fountant really helps out!!Then after they ate the cake since I used a whole doll in the cake she got to have that as a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jenrice from I made this cake for my grandmonthers 80th birthday. She always made me these doll cakes when i was a kid and I thought what better way to show her a happy birthday them to make her one of her own. I got so carried away I also made MINI doll cakes with the wilton mini mold cake pan. So she got to have the larger one on the table with the smaller doll cakes around. She was so proud to tell everyone about how she made them for me and now I'm making them for her. Make sure you place the doll far enough into the cake so it doesn't look like it was just plopped into the cake. Have your buttercream come up the the bottom of the doll so it looks all one piece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grandma Neen from Have used this a number of times for little girl birthday parties. It is easy to decorate in lots of different ways. Have made traditional Barbie cakes, mountains, faeries, and just a weird shaped cake. Once I didn't use the insert and that was a disaster--it didn't cook through--still looked great, though! I have the old model and don't know if the newer one is the same, but I wish it was tall enough to come up to the waist of a real barbie doll. I have had to add a layer cake to the bottom sometimes. I don't like the idea of the doll picks.It looks like a doll cut in half after the cake is eaten. I have seen some disappointed kids when they take the doll pick out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lilitigger from I use the Classic Wonder Mold Doll Cake for my niece's sweet 16. It was easy to use. I use fondant tinted in purple and aqua for her dress. I baked 2 sheets of cake 9 x 13 put on top of each other and then cut part of the cake into stairs, covered it with white fondant and then put the doll on top like if she was on a platform. I used a real doll but the legs and hips were too big for the hole on top of the cake that it cracked the cake but the fondant covered it. So I would stick with Wilton's classic doll instead. Everyone in the party loved the cake and I still get compliments for it. That is one of the best molds I have. My next cake with the mold will be a volcano for my son.

Rated 5 out of 5 by funz cakes from I like this mold because it is versatile. I have used it not only for doll cakes but also to create giant mushrooms and jungle scenes. I made a cake with Tinkerbel sitting on a giant mushroom. I stuck the Tinkerbel doll into the cake and made fondant legs to make it appear the she's sitting on a giant mushroom. This will also be a great pan to use for a Mario cake. Likewise to make a giant from the Jack & the beanstalk. You can use the mold for the body and make a fondant head, arms and legs. This sure is a fun mold. Imagine, explore and create. I love this pan. I actually have 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeaMcL from I have wanted this cake ever since it first came out. So when I was finally able to use it for my Granddaughter's Princess party I was thrilled. It was so easy. It was the first time I used fondant and was leary but when I started up I couldn't believe how easy it was. I made up the recipe and rolled it out and placed on the cake and presto... The princess was the center with the Wilton Princess Castle as a background on the party table and it was all my little princess could ask for! I've been decorating cakes for 30 years and it was the quickest "complicated" cake I've ever made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cake baker 1 from follow the instructions on the pan. Makes a beautiful cake that every little girl or bride to be is proud and happy to call theirs. Can be decorated with butter cream or fondant and can be as simple or as plain as you like and will still be very beautiful. The hardest part for me is always blending in the top and the skirt. Some choose to dress the top, I usually do the top in icing or fondant so it will match the skirt. I also like to put a few Icing flowers in her hair for a decorative touch. This pan has many possibilities just let your imagination go, and have fun.
