Scattered but Resourceful

Frozen Doll Cake at

I may not think ahead far enough to check the instructions before I go to the store to get the ingredients to make a skirt-shaped cake for my daughter’s birthday . . . but I’m creative.

Creative enough to solve the oh-I-need-to-make-two-so-I-can-add-enough-length-to-the-skirt problem I faced last weekend:

Making the Skirt Cake Long Enough at

What’s easier? Have Hubby run out for 2 cake donuts in the morning, or run to the store at 10 p.m. and then bake another cake?

The donuts are easier. I promise.

Note to self: Photos taken from slightly above make anyone (even a donut-skirted princess from Frozen) look less hip-py.

Instructions for this cake.




  1. This is hilarious! I’ve never made any special cakes, but I always thought skirt cakes were interesting. Thanks for sharing your dilemma :)

  2. You are an awesome Mom!

  3. You win the award for most creative! I would have never thought of that. Kudos!

  4. Haha! This happened to me and I ended up popping the legs off the Barbie! Not a stellar idea, but what are ya gonna do, right?

  5. Very nice job…and smart thinking on the donuts! I’ve made a couple of those – always with two mixes, and have had to throw away a bunch of cake. What a waste, so if I ever have to do another, I’ll keep this…and cutting the legs off a cheap fashion doll in mind. Happy belated Birthday to your daughter! :D

    For future reference, you can make frosting without shortening. Blech
