    Cake
    Bake batter in a Wonder Mold ($20; wilton.com) and an 8-inch round cake pan and let cool. Sandwich frosting between the two cakes and stack them to make a skirt shape. Wrap the doll's legs in plastic wrap and insert doll into top of cake. Decorate skirt with frosting and ribbon.

    Favor
    Create DIY crowns! Cut lace to desired length. Lay lace on wax paper. Spread a thin layer of fabric stiffener over lace. Let dry until sticky. Repeat until stiff. Spray-paint crowns. Hot-glue the ends of the lace together.
