American Girl Josefina Doll Cake

What a fun cake for a 5 year old birthday surprise!!!  My girls LOVE American Girl books and the dolls so this was a special treat for me to make!  Josefina is even one of the favorites here in our house.  I really wish I had gotten better pictures of this cake, but oh well.  Someday I will get a fabulous camera to capture all the details I put into these cakes.

 Close up shot of the little lady herself.  Surrounded by edible tissue paper!
 No, I do not have a Cricuit machine, so these letters were all done by hand!  LOTS of work!  But so worth it in the end.
The gift box and more tissue.  So fun for me to do something different, and I have to say, I was TERRIFIED to do this doll.  I haven't had the best of luck with people, but this one I took my time and she turned out much better than I'd hoped.  Happy Birthday, Tatum!


  1. WOW I love you cake !!

  2. Thank you so much! It was a fun one!

  3. I love her hair! The mouth is so delicate and detailed, I would have just done a semi circle and left it at that ;-)

    1. Haha! Thank you! Sometimes I curse myself for how much detail I require of myself! :)
