This design was made to match the birthday theme chosen for my granddaughter's first birthday.

1950 Little Girl Poodle Skirt Cake

1950s little girl poodle skirt cakeThis little girl's poodle cake is a fun cake that I made for my daughter's best friend. It was a "girls only" birthday party which they celebrated at a 1950's dinner theater. All supplies that are mentioned which include fondant, gum paste, baby shoe template, royal icing, pearl dust,blue sparkle dust, flower cutter to create belt buckle, gel colors, pan, drum boards, square cutter for floor can all be found at almost any cake supply store or on-line

The cake itself was actually fairly easy to make. I baked 2 chocolate cakes both in a cake pan measuring 12x18x2. Any size pan will work depending on how large you would like your dress to be. I froze my cakes prior because I found that they are easier to carve into any shape if still slightly frozen. Once frozen, I carved one of my cakes into a blouse shape and the other cake into a poodle skirt shape. I had two separate cakes at this point in which I torted and filled with chocolate frosting. The outside of the blouse cake was iced with white buttercream tinted a skin tone color and the skirt cake was iced in a white buttercream. I then covered my cakes in rolled fondant in which I colored to match the birthday girls request. Before applying fondant to the blouse, I cut out a v-shape in the white fondant so that you could see the skin tone buttercream underneath the neck. Later, the fondant scarf will cover the outside of the v-shape to give it a more polished look. Both cakes were then put together on a large round cake drum to create a full dress. The cake drum was covered in black and white rolled fondant square pieces that I had cut with a square cutter a few days beforehand. The square pieces were attached to the cake drum with a dab of royal icing and placed to create a checked floor effect. I then hot glued a piece of ribbon around the cake drum for an extra special touch.
