This lovely fondant cake is just what the doctor ordered! Treat your little docs to a yummy treat for the eyes and the tummy with a too-cute cake from our Doc McStuffins Party Ideas Guide and Girl's Birthday Cake Ideas Gallery.
- 2 two-layer round cakes, 6" and 10" in diameter
- Buttercream icing
- 2 boxes pre-rolled white fondant
- Violet icing color
- Rose icing color
- Pink icing color
- Sky blue icing color
- Ivory icing color
- Doc McStuffins birthday candles
- Fondant roller
- Fondant smoother
- Pizza cutter or paring knife
- 16" cake board
- To prepare your cake rounds to be covered with fondant, ice them with a layer of buttercream icing.
- Knead a ball of white fondant until soft then roll out. Place over the smaller cake round and smooth using a fondant smoother. Trim off the excess with a pizza cutter or paring knife. Set aside the cake and fondant scraps.
- To create the pink-hued fondant for the bottom layer, knead a ball of white fondant until soft. Using a toothpick, dot pink icing color onto the fondant, and knead until color is evenly distributed.
- Roll out the pink fondant. Place over the larger cake round and smooth using a fondant smoother. Trim off the excess and set aside for later. Stack the smaller cake round on top of the large cake.
- Let's decorate the top cake round! Grab a ball of excess white fondant and dot with violet icing color using a toothpick. Once the desired hue is reached, cut four strips and wrap them around the top cake.
- For the flowers, knead a ball of the pink fondant you had left over from the bottom cake layer. Roll out the fondant and cut out flower shapes, 8-10 will do. Cut out circle centers for the flowers from the extra white fondant and attach to the pink flowers by dabbing the backs with water to "glue" them. Use the same method for the flowers around the cake. (If you like, save a couple fondant flowers to decorate the cake board!)
- On to the bottom layer – let's make some boo-boo bandages! Knead the rest of the excess white fondant into a ball and divide into 3 sections. Tint 2 of the sections rose pink and ivory, respectively.
- Roll out the third section of white fondant and cut out 4 band-aid shapes. Roll out the ivory-tinted fondant and cut out band-aid shapes slightly smaller than the white ones you made. Cut out tiny holes from the ivory shapes for a band-aid texture and "glue" onto the white shapes with water.
- Roll out the pink section and cut out 4 heart shapes. Attach one heart to the center of each band-aid, then attach them to the cake – cute!
- To make a blue strip border for the small and large cake, roll a ball of excess white fondant and dot with sky blue icing color using a toothpick. Cut two long strips approximately 1" wide, and wrap them around the bottom of the large cake round, end to end. Cut off excess fondant. Do the same for the small cake round.
- Last but not least, add some Doc McStuffins candles to the top of your cake. If you saved a couple fondant flowers, use them to decorate the cake board. Your little girl will love this Dottie-inspired cake!
