Girls there are some gorgeous cakes here...very impressive
Here's my TESTER cake before the real one PMSL. Its for my DD's 5th Birthday. I had never used a Dolly Varden tin before so wanted to try it out first rather than being in a panic a couple of days before or on the party
On the cake I'm doing for the party I am attaching some wings to make her into a Fairy too
Turned out better than expected.
Mmm...going to cut it on Sunday....so I'll know if the cake is still fresh being made the Thursday before (3 days prior)....otherwise I'll bake the next one next Friday (2 days before the party) so I have time to decorate

I am terrible at decorating cakes - always ends in tears. DH has taken over the job. I bake the cake and he decorates. This is DS's cake for his 5th birthday.

rebecca75 & deesamrach.... Re the Dolly Varden Cake.... firstly I won't be using the Plastic Icing (ie. icing used on wedding cakes) as I have used in my Dolly Varden cake shown above. I did a Butter Cake and was told to use butter icing to help it ahere the plastic icing to the cake. Problem is when cutting the cake the plastic icing started to slide a bit when trying to cut the cake....so I'm thinking could be pretty messing when trying to cut several pieces at a child's party. So I'm scrapping using the plastic icing and am going to use a 'Fluffy White Frosting' which apparently tastes like marshmallow has a nice shine & holds it shape well.....think it will be far easier to cut too
The other option is to do a icecream cake......apparent VERY easy with this shaped tin.....however, useless to me for DD's party as I'm holding it at Hungry Jacks a good 20min drive away.
I'll post a pic after Sunday......fingers crossed all goes well

Here's my DD's cake for tomorrow and I've used the 'fluffy white frosting' (tastes like marshmallows ) as mentioned earlier. DD said she likes this frosting much more than the other one ......phew!

Your doll cake looks great **julie**. I bet your dd loved it!!

Wow, some gorgeous cakes here!
I've tackled three of the WW kids party cakes so far and they have turned out quite well I think.
Here is the 'Cat' cake I made for DS4's birthday last year.
This is the 'Alien' cake I made for DS4's birthday party last week. I couldn't find any fruit rings for the mouth so I used 'teeth' lol.
And this is a variation of the 'Snake' cake. I didn't have a savarin tin and my ring tin just didn't curve the right way to make him loop around on himself. Still he turned out really well.
He was huge too!! lol
You can see how big he is compared to the kids.

Jahbee, your cake looks fantastic too!!
Donna your cakes look great. The snake cake looks great. I couldn't get hold of a savarin tin either and I just used a ring tin too!! Even the speciality cake shop didn't have them. LOL How long did it take you to roll out the marshmallows? It took me nearly all day to do them and then they would bounce back into the similar shape they before they were rolled.

LOL How long did it take you to roll out the marshmallows?
About two hours lol. I poured each packet out then flattened five at a time with me big rolling pin They did regain a little bit of shape but not much. It's a very fiddly cake!!
Posted 16 January 2009 - 07:18 PM
Donna, I tried doing several at one time but they stuck to the rolling pin so in the end it was one at at time and boy it was consuming. I really don't think I will have to make it again, but if we do then we will try melting chocolate and put it over the snake. I agree it was fiddly cake, but so worth it wasn't it!!
