My niece has really gotten into those Lalaloopsy dolls and wanted them on her birthday cake this year. Her mom asked for the toys to be on top and to have buttons all over the side. The buttons and platform the toys were sitting on is fondant with some piping for the stitches.
Iím not completely thrilled with how it came out, to be honest, but at least I didnít have a meltdown like last year. The quality of my cake decorating is diminishing, but Iím finally able to actually enjoy doing it now that I allow myself to make mistakes. If I had learned that lesson when I first started, I would surely have made tons more cakes by now. I wish I had thought to get more (better) pictures of it, but who has time for pictures when your niece is that excited?
