Now that I’ve introduced you to Blythe dolls I can show you the birthday cake I made for my daughter last year. You may have noticed her picture on my blog banner. I used “Miss Sally Rice” for a Blythe Dolly Varden cake.
I wrapped the doll in plenty of glad wrap around her body up to just above her waist to keep her clean and then wrapped her head, hair and pullcord (for her eyes to change colour) in foil so that I could easily take it off once the cake was finished. She was a chocolate mud cake and ganached in the same way as my previous cakes.
My daughters party colours were pink and teal/aqua so I went about decorating the “dress” in those colours.
For the front I actually used one of my cardmaking embossers to press into the rolled icing to make the decorative swirly pattern. A few teal cashous and a frill at the bottom of her dress and all was done for Titi’s Blythe Doll Tea Party.
Even though she was wrapped up she still had a faint yummy smell of chocolate for a month or so! I think this is my favourite cake to date, so pretty.
Here a few pictures of some of the other items I made for my daughters Blythe Doll Tea Party for her 5th birthday. I made screen printed pink tshirts for each of the guests to take home and also screen printed handbags as lolly bag party favours. There was a colouring in table with booklets my husband I and made filled with Blythe doll pictures for them to colour and keep. The party table was set up in a T shape for the tea party and my hairdresser made each girl feel extra special by doing their hair, putting pretty clips in and adding a bit of sparkly lip gloss.
It was a really fun day and my daughter loved it.
