Here are a few details. The cake was vanilla butter cake with Butterfinger buttercream filling and crumb coated in chocolate ganache. I ended up using a pound of ganache on the 9″ round cake because I made my cardboard base too big and had to ganache to the edge! Silly me…I won’t do that next time…will make it only 1/8″ or so larger than the cake…not 1/4″! The torso part was hand molded from modeling chocolate.
Here are the cakes crumb coated with ganache before I covered them in fondant.
I used some “hardware” this time too since I wanted the dress to appear on a stand, floating above the cake. So, here’s what the inside structure looked like.
And, the best pic of all…me and my little princess!! Oh I love her so much and praise the Lord everyday that I get to be her mom! I love you Raquelle!
