The Zigzag is a popular way to fill in outlined areas, perfect for ribbed sweater and cuff effects. You can also use tight zigzags to cover the entire side of your cake—they look great!

Pipe dots for flower centers, faces, figure piping and border effects. When making large dots, lift the tip as you squeeze to allow icing to fill out completely.

Mrs. Claus Welcomes You Cake is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just made this cake for a display where I teach. Although it wasn't particularly difficult it did take a lot of time. That said, the instructions were easy to follow and other than having to lengthen the straps on her apron and adding another strip to make the apron bow, I didn't have to struggle at all. It probably should have been stated in the instructions to roll the fondant accents to 1/8" thickness or less. The people in the store loved watching this being made and were really impressed by what could be achieved in cake :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Aways an impressive look to have a doll cake. I have made several of them for Princess Birthdays, Bridal Shower, and little girl birthdays. Piping of tiny stars can cause a cramp in your hand though, so you may want to try different size star tips. Haven't really tried the rolled fondant for this cake though, but look forward to giving it a try! She looks so important with her tray of cookies!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This doll cake was so fun to make. My daughter wanted a Mrs. Santa Claus cake so she got it! The cake is time consuming as far as the details (if you're a perfectionist like me). The thing I had trouble with was getting the fondant the correct red color right. Other than that, take it slow and steady. I had one happy little girl on my hands!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am considering making the Mrs. Claus cake - I used the wonder mold for a bridal cake for a neice & enjoyed making the cake - it was also a hit with the group - simple to frost and decorate. Only trouble made with the half doll was the long hair getting caught up in the icing - plan to pull up like the Mrs. Claus cake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I think that I was a wonderful idea. It is always nice to be able to use a cake pan for more than one occasion or event. The Mrs. Claus Welcomes You Cake has techiques that are easy to creat because most of the decorating was done by making dots, and lines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Loved the cake, although I wish mine was as pretty, but I am just starting to work with Fondant, so practice practice. Will make this cake for Table Decoration Christmas Day, to match Santa Clause.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When rolling out the fondant make sure that it is not rolled too thin or it will tear when you try to cover the cake. When it is all done it is so pretty and will be the talk of the evening
