That's island talk for what's going on? If you're going to be islanders, we must start building your vocabulary, right? Right. Say it with me, WHAT-A-GWON?
Why, thanks for asking, Islanders! I've been working on the baby shower and the birthday party in my spare (non-organizing, cooking and cleaning) time. Let's talk birthday party, shall we?
In the birthday party breakdown, I mentioned creating a mini tablescape for the dolls in attendance. We'll have mini plates, napkins, cups, party hats, centerpiece and even mini cakes. I haven't decided whether each guest will decorate a cake for her doll but I am just SO happy the mini cake idea came together.

Here's how we did it:
Easy Doll Cakes
- Oreos (2 required for each cake)
- Regular Icing (it's the easiest to work with for projects like this; whipped and fluffed only get messy)
- Butter knife
- Optional: Sprinkles
1. Place a small dollop of icing on the top of a cookie
2. Sandwich another cookie on top
3. Spread the icing along the sides and top of your double decker Oreos to make them look like a cake. I prefer a messier look but you can choose to smooth your cake(s) perfectly
4. Sprinkle to your heart's desire! Munch had a blast decorating her mini cake:
I placed 1 heart-shaped sprinkle on top of my cake and I think it turned out so cute!
I could totally see an elf on the shelf idea with a mini birthday cake, mini cards and tiny balloons. What about celebrating a doll's birthday by making a mini cake? Chocolate oreos with strawberry icing? YUM! Loads of possibilities found in 1 pack of Oreos!
Munchface had a blast in the practice run and I'm sure she is going to LOVE the real-deal party set-up!
Cheers to tiny celebrations that have a big impact!
