This is the third birthday cake I’ve made for little Juliet, and every year I give thanks for the fact that her mother always puts a stylish and tasteful spin on whatever her daughter’s current craze is. This year, it’s the LOL Surprise Dolls, and true to form she wanted an elegant pink and turquoise cake with touches of gold leaf. The doll toppers were supplied by her mother and were two hard-to-find mermaid dolls.
LOL Surprise dolls come in a plastic capsule and you don’t know which doll you’re going to get until you open it, which is what the kids love so much about them. So in keeping with this theme, I buried an LOL Surprise Doll ball inside the bottom tier of the cake, as a special surprise when she cut into it!
