  • Bake at 190°C for about 25 minutes.
  • When cold, place part one layer onto plate.
  • Spread with icing.
  • Cut other two layers into 4 triangles and then "cement" together on cake to make the dolls dress with the doll in the middle.
  • Cover the rest of the dress so you cannot see the lines.

  • Cream butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add essence.
  • Gradually beat in icing sugar, beating until smooth.
