Today I am showing you how to make a Shopkins Shoppies Cake, featuring Donutina, Jessicakes, Bubbleisha! I’ve done two other Shopkins cake tutorials, so make sure to check out Wishes, a Birthday Cake Shopkins, and Rainbow Bite Shopkins cake!
A Monster High doll cake has been something that has been high on the request list for a while now, so when the opportunity came to work with Monster High AND Chef Dominique Ansel, we jumped at the chance! Why wouldn’t we?
Monster High dolls embracing differences and celebrating what makes everyone unique. Each “ghoul” as the dolls are called, has a different monster lineage and live by the slogan “be yourself, be unique, be a monster.” For example, Draculaura, is the daughter of Dracula, and Frankie Stein, Frankenstein. I know the kids in my Kindergarten class LOVE these dolls.
Chef Dominique is the genius behind the Cronut (a croissant, donut combination) and the Milk and Cookie Shot! We have done our own takes of both of those recipes on our YouTube channel already, and loved making them! His newest creation is the Shocklette Monster for the Monster High brand. The Shocklette Monster treat is chocolate mousse, dipped in chocolate, encased in marshmallow! It sounds freaky fab!
You can follow Chef Dominque Ansel as he documents his progress on his Shocklette Monster treat over on his Instagram.
Since we were asked to join in and get in on the Monster High celebration as well, I decided to turn Draculaura, well her dress, into a cake! What’s great about this cake is that you don’t need anything special, besides a Monster High doll. A cake doll pan helps, but as you can see in my Barbie Cake video, you can also just use a tapered bowl to shape the dress.
Who doesn’t love Barbie?!?! For a couple of minutes we can put aside all of the controversy and the thoughts of whether an anatomically correct Barbie would be as loved by today’s society as she currently is, and just enjoy the icon that is Barbie. Whatever your opinion on Barbie, she has managed to withstand the test of time and continues to run rampent in elementary schools . . . in Cranbrook at least! We’ve always been about 10 years behind current trends, so maybe Barbie is passe. Oh well, I’ll add an edited note to this post in 10 years if that is the case.
Now, lets move to putting Barbie in a cake . . . and make a Barbie cake! If you want to replace the barbie with another type of doll, change away! Any doll will work with this design. If you do not have a doll pick, and want to put an actual Barbie in the cake (who has money to do that?!?), after baking the cake, you will need to carve out the center of the cake, wrap Barbie in syran wrap (make sure she’s clean) and follow the same decorating steps as I show you in the video.
