Hi Everybody

I am doing a doll cake using the Wilton Wonder Mould Kit…am wondering which of Rose’s cakes would be best suited for this…I may need to double a recipe as these are the product features:

Pan measures 8-inch diameter and 5-inch deep,takes 5-6 cups of firm-textured batter and has a heat-conducting rod that assures even baking..

Also, can you split the doll cake for layers inorder to fill them up? Will the cake crack if you do so? Have not yet baked in a doll cake mould as yet, so kindly advice. Thank you.

I would go with the pound cake; it’s firmer than the regular butter cakes so it could work.  But I haven’t baked in the doll form so I don’t know what happens if you torte it.  I’ve seen some people put the doll part on another round cake (to make it taller, for example) or have that round cake be wider so it’s kind of like a platform…

Thanks Jeanne…guess will just have to try baking in one of those…yes, the doll cake mould is placed on top of another 9’’ or 10’’ cake for the height and is filled so I don’t necessarily have to torte and frost my doll cake…

I can use any of Roses’ cakes for the bottom rounds and Roses’s pound cake is a hot favorite in here…maybe, it shd work for the doll mould as well…will revert once I do so.

Sharon, Let us know how it goes when you bake in the wonder mould pan.  I have on too and am thinking of using the white velvet butter cake recipe.  Thanks.

I am planning to bake Roses’ favorite yelow cake in the Wonder mould pan….guess will have to double the recipe for the pan…

One doubt regarding the Cake pops…it is ok to add whipped cream instead of buttercream to bind the shredded cake crumbs and make them into small balls, correct?

Sharon, I see a few problems with using whipped cream in a cake pop: I don’t think it would have the same adhesive properties as buttercream; you wouldn’t be able to leave the cream/cake pops at room temp for longer than 2 hours; the foam would collapse when forming the cake balls so I’m not sure why it would be whipped first.

I think it’s important that whatever is used as the “glue” for the cake crumbs is as stable as possible at room temp and even warmer temperatures as they are usually shaped by hand and dipped in a warm candy/chocolate coating.

Thanks so much Sophia…din’t think of the foam in the whipped cream collapsing…and yes, right now, it is super humid where I live…am sure the cake pops would never have made it if I were to have used whipped cream, shaping and dipping and all…

Your comment has saved a lot of mess….will try it with regular buttercream or Ganache…am hoping Ganache will not pose any unseen problems?

Will post once I make the pops.

Sharon, I think the ganache will work though it might be a little messy - melted chocolate on the hands - when you’re shaping them, but once they’re chilled they should be okay, and, you will have elevated the cake pop to chocolate truffle status smile !

I’d love to see them when they’re done!
