I thought about my birthdays growing up. I was a tomboy, playing sports and not interested in getting too "girly". My room was decorated in colors of red, white and blue and man trying to find wall paper in the mid 70's that wasn't patriotic, was tough.
My mom always made these cool shaped cakes for our birthdays, from this book (she did the Teddy Bear on the cover)...
I am pretty sure I never wanted a cake that looked like the skirt of a doll, that was just weird.
Because I am getting weirder by the day, I decided to make myself a doll cake. The pink frosting is felted wool and the chocolate cake is brown corduroy.
