Recipe for the perfect biscuit
You should start with a biscuit test. Take 5 fresh eggs and one glass of sugar( 200 grams) and beat well with a mixer until a uniform thick white foam is formed. Continuing to beat gradually, enter into the mixture a half cup of flour( 150-200 grams).
For splendor, you can add a baking powder for dough or soda.
Before you send the dough into the oven, you should choose the appropriate baking mold, since the cake should be dome-shaped to have a resemblance to the hem of the dress. Each landlady, of course, their secrets, but a good option for this will be demountable forms of different diameters.
And if there are no such forms, you can try to form a skirt yourself, cutting out circles of different diameters from the cake and stacking them on each other.
Pour the dough onto the selected baking sheet, having previously laid parchment paper on the bottom and smeared with lean oil. Put in the oven and bake cakes for about 15-20 minutes at a temperature of 170-180 degrees.
If possible, you can bake a biscuit in a multivark.
The finished cake should be carefully extracted from the oven and allowed to cool well.
Now you can collect the cake cakes in the magnificent hem of the skirt. To ensure that the cake does not turn out to be dry and kept the shape, be sure to cover all layers and joints with cream.
When you managed to achieve the desired shape of the skirt, you can put it on the doll. Make a hole in the center of the biscuit and insert the doll inside. In advance, make sure that the doll's hair is gathered in a tail or a high hairstyle, so that no unpleasant situations arise. Be sure not to forget the body of the doll, but rather wrap it with food film to the level of contact with the cake.
