Doll Cakes - The Tutorial.

Whata Gwon? 

 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.

Tutorial for the pictured doll hat here!

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!

Happy Friday, Islanders. I wanted to share a thrifty find from a while back.  Ugh, I love my local Goodwill Outlet.  Oh, and yes, you saw ...
