Let's get started!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease the princess cake pans.
  2. Toss the shredded apples with lemon juice to keep them from browning.
  3. Whisk the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in the microwave and whisk in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.
  5. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry and fold in the shredded apples.
  6. Fill each pan two-thirds full of batter (about 3 ½ cups each pan) and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool for 10 minutes in pan and then remove to a rack to cool to room temperature.
  8. Level off the top of each cake with a cake leveler or a large serrated knife.

Time to decorate!

  1. Stack the cakes in ascending order, leveled side down, with a thin layer of frosting in between the cake layers.
  2. Crumb coat the cake and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set.
  3. On a flat surface sprinkled with powdered sugar, roll out the dark blue fondant to a 16-inch round,1/4 inch thick.
  4. Drape the fondant over the cake and form ruffles on the bottom of the dress.
  5. Using the light blue fondant, roll out another 14-inch disk and place it on top of the first layer. Make a slit in the middle and form ruffles.
  6. Take a strip of the blue fondant and cover half of the doll's torso. 
  7. Cut a thin strip of the light blue fondant and wrap it around the dolls shoulders. Add some ruffle details on it using a sharp fondant tool or a toothpick.
  8. Make small diamond shapes with light blue fondant and outline with some gold food coloring. Use a little bit of water to attach it to the doll's top.
  9. Stick the doll in the middle of the cake and wrap around a thick strip of fondant to cover the seams.
