Rated 5 out of 5 by hbjohns 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 bcustock 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 Lizziemac*52353 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 Rubylime 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 angelkr 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 PatShea from I made this Cake for my 4 year old Granddaughter's Birthday she loves the Princess and the Frog movie. I made two cakes and turned one upside down to made it bigger and to look like a dress, I used a Tiana Doll ( like a Barbie doll ) and used a Violet color instead of Blue she screamed when she saw it and her face lit up , This cake made her Birthday wonderful !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Desserts By Dee 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!
