HOW TO MAKE A FONDANT BODICE FOR A PRINCESS DOLL CAKE

In this tutorial I will show you how to make a fondant bodice for a princess doll cake

ITEMS YOU WILL NEED:



STEP 1
From your heart shaped cutters find the size that covers the front of your doll best




STEP 2
Copy the heart shape onto a strip of non-stick paper



STEP 3
Draw a straight line across the bottom of the heart with a slight gap for the waist and then draw 2 straight lines at a a slight angle (this will ensure the fondant goes under the arms and slightly tapers down to the back)



STEP 4
Cut out your pattern and check that it is the right size and fits generously around the dolls body (you may need to tie the dolls hair back so that it is out of the way)




STEP 5
Roll out your fondant to about 3-6 mm and place the bodice template on the fondant and cut around with a small sharp knife



STEP 6
Wet the back of the fondant lightly with water and then wrap the fondant around the body, pressing the fondant gently to the shape of the doll, then pinch the two sides together at the back.



STEP 7
Cut the excess fondant from the back of the doll with the knife and smooth as well as you can. It is very difficult to remove joins from fondant so do the best you can. The dolls hair will cover some of the join and if you prefer cover with decorations



STEP 8
Use your fingers to gently smooth any sharp edges around the bodice  



STEP 9
Place the doll in the top of a styrofoam cup to dry. If possible, dry for a couple of days and you can then decorate with your preferred decorations
