In this tutorial I show you how to make the Sofia the First doll to stick in the cake using a cake dowel and modelling paste / fondant, as well as the cake itself. If you are not confident in creating the doll itself, you can just place a Disney princess barbie doll of Sofia in the cake instead :) A Sofia the First doll cake makes the perfect birthday cake for your little girls birthday party!

Basic Victoria Sponge Cake Recipe:


225g butter
225g caster sugar
4 eggs
225g self-raising flour
1 tsp vanilla essence

Method: Cream together the butter and sugar, then beat in the eggs and vanilla essence. Once smooth and creamy, fold in the flour. Pour in to a greased cake tin and bake in the oven at 180degrees for approximately 40 minutes, until golden brown and a knife comes out clean.

Buttercream Recipe:
600g icing sugar, sifted
300g unsalted or salted butter, softened
optional flavouring
Beat the ingredients together.

Chocolate Ganache Recipe:
To make chocolate ganache you can simply melt chocolate with double cream in a glass bowl above a pan of boiling water ( I use the hob to heat the water, but be sure to turn this right down once the chocolate begins to melt so it doesn't burn). I use the ratio of 3 to 1 chocolate to double cream.
