Perfect cake for little princess’s birthday or bridal shower.
Dolly Varden cake, this cake has been our “To do list” for a while. We have seen a few Dolly Varden cakes around, they seem to use fondant or a buttercream with food colouring. But at the Bloominghills kitchen, we don’t want to make something just ordinary that you can buy from anywhere. We wanted to create a Dolly Varden on another level, something simple but elegant.. A Dolly Varden wearing white chocolate ganache wedding dress??
Too good to be true? Is it possible??
(Please excuse naked dolly! still in the process of fitting white chocolate mud + Dark chocolate mud layered cake skirt)
This particular Dolly Varden cake was a layered dark chocolate mud cake, iced and decorated with a white chocolate ganache. Dolly Varden cakes can also be made with any type of cake or cream you desire. There are many cake and cream flavours to choose from. Give us a theme colour or even a dress you like the design of and we will do our best to match it.
All the dolls used in our dolly varden cakes are brand new. They have a good wash and then they get wrapped with aluminium foil from toes up to the waist line before they get put into the cake.
Each cake will come with the “clothes” that originally came with dolls so they can be used after the party, otherwise we will end up with 1000 sets of doll clothes! (Haha!)
The dolly varden cake is tall dome shaped cake normally serves 15-18 guests. But it is very versatile, to increase the number of servings, add cupcakes around the base or sit her on top of a round – 8″ cake which can cater for a large number of guests.
We did wonder if this would be possible, especially the big bottom and side ruffles, as we have never seen anyone doing it with ganache using a piping nozzle. But here it is our very first Dolly Varden wearing a white chocolate ganache dress. Isn’t she just gorgeous?
This was definitely a fun project, adding an extra skill to the Bloominghills kitchen, cake decorator plus fashion designer! We can not wait to create another one of a kind Dolly Varden cake!
