Additional Information

Step 1

Prepare Icing
We suggest that you tint all icings at one time while cake cools. Refrigerate tinted icings in covered containers until ready to use.

Make 1 1/4 cup buttercream icing:
Tint 1 cup blue
Reserve 1/4 cup white

Step 2

Decorate in Order

Use blue icing to ice cake and build up pleats and mark lines with spatula.

Step 3

Ice doll pick and push into cake. Use blue icing and tip 16 to cover dress with stars, overpiping icing on sleeves to create puffs.

Step 4

Use tip 3 and white icing to pipe dots in the shape of a crown and add Rainbow Nonpareil Sprinkle Decorations.

Step 5

Baking Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 For temperature per recipe directions. Your cake will unmold easily, without sticking, when you prepare the pan properly. Grease the inside of pan using a pastry brush and solid vegetable shortening (do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable oil). Spread the shortening so that all indentations are covered. Sprinkle about 2 Tablespoons flour inside pan and shake so that flour covers all greased surfaces.

Turn pan upside down and tap lightly to remove excess flour. If any shiny spots remain touch up with more shortening and flour to prevent cake from sticking. (You can use vegetable oil pan spray or vegetable oil pan spray with flour, in place of solid shortening and flour, or use New Wilton Cake Release, for perfect, crumb-free cakes!).

Make one 2-layer cake mix according to package or recipe directions. Pour 2/3 cup cake batter into each well in pan, about 2/3 full. Be careful not to touch sides or bottom of pan.

Bake cake on middle rack of 350 F oven for 25-30 minutes or until cake tests done according to recipe directions.

Remove cake from oven and cool on cake rack for 10 minutes. While the cake is still in the pan, carefully slice off the raised center portion of the cake. This allows the cake to sit more level and helps prevent cracking.

To remove cake from pan, place cooling rack against cake and turn both cake rack and pan over. Lift pan off carefully. Cool cake at least one hour. Brush loose crumbs off cake.

To transfer cake to serving board, hold a cake board against cake and turn both cake and rack over. Lift off rack. Hold another board against bottom of cake and turn cake over. Be sure to hold cake, rack and board close together while turning to prevent cake from cracking.

We recommend hand washing pan in hot, soapy water.

Little Princess Doll Cake is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Girl Scouts loved creating their mini cake dolls/Little Princess Cakes. It was a fun learning experience. The decorating is easy when you use the Wilton decorator starter kit. It contains the tools and recipes you need. It also gives you decorating techniques and instructions. The girls used the recipe to make buttercream icing and practiced the suggested decorating techniques while their cake molds were cooling. This gave them the opportunity to "perfect" their decorating creativity techniques on their "Little Princess Cakes." They had a great time, loved their "dolls" and want to repeat this activity. Plus they were able to take home their own individual decorating tool kit for future use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had four girls ranging from 3 1/2 to 13 to entertain on New Year's Eve and decided on the mini wonder pan and baked four individual cakes. I made enough icing in an array of colors and let the girls decorate their "dolls", putting the mini doll picks in when they were ready to. Each girl enjoyed her art project and loved it even more the next day when they took their dolls home to show off and to enjoy eating. It was fun project that anyone at any age can enjoy. I would do this project again for a princess birthday party is the guest list was 8 or less.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS PAN! I have used it to make a Bride and her bridesmaids for a wedding shower; I have used just one of the cakes and used it for the center piece of a 1/4 sheet cake. My most recent use of the pan was to make 'name cards' for the girls attending my nieces birthday party - Each little princess was decorated to resemble the little girl in question and her name was piped in the skirt. I boxed each up, as if they were actually dolls, and each girl then got to take the cakes home with them when the party was finished. My niece loves to help me bake this particular set of cakes and we have used them for towers in a castle as well as turning them on their sides and making them into lions, tigers and bears. Endless possibilities!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can also make a larger cake by using a glass pyrex bowl instead of the mini wonder molds. Then you would use a standard size doll pick instead of the mini ones. However, if you are making this for a birthday, it is also fun to use a real barbie doll, then wrap the bottom half of the doll in plastic wrap before inserting it into the cake. This way, the birthday girl will be able to keep the barbie as a gift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made two for my 1 year old granddaughter's birthday for her to eat by herself. The first one didn't turn out like I wanted since I'm fairly new to cake decorating. The second one was really cute as I made royal icing apple blossom flowers and put them on top of the buttercream icing for the dress. I will make them for her again as they were just the right size for her to share and eat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've done this cake twice for two little princesses! I varied the colors of the sections of the dress to add a little different look. Their eyes just grew as they saw their cake! Very easy to follow directions - everyone should try this at least once!
