It's National Doll Day, you say? WELL, THEN. Let's find some Sweet doll cakes and celebrate!
I bet most of you remember the classic Barbie version our moms and grandmoms used to make:
(By Butik Pasta)
Though, for the record, I don't remember them being NEARLY this pretty. Ruffly pearl goodness!
Or how about this Belle?
(By Say It With Cake)
And all this hand-piped "embroidery" could make a grown woman squeal:
Ahh, but there's more to life than just Barbie dolls, my friends!
There are also BLYTHE dolls.
(By Cake Central user Dolca Llepolia)
You're not going to believe this, but the doll is made of modeling chocolate. YES, REALLY. This baker is mind-blowingly talented, and she seems to specialize in sculpting edible Blythes.
Here's another one:
Ah! How could you not keep her on a shelf forever? (Again, all edible!)
Now let's get really old-school for minute, because I have fond memories of my old Raggedy Ann & Andy dolls:

From my casual browsing, it appears there are about eleventy billion different Monster High dolls to collect. Which is awesome, but also kind of overwhelming. See, in MY day, young whippersnappers, we just had Barbie, Skipper, Ken, and their stable full of My Little Ponies.
That said... this girl is way cooler than Barbie:

Ok, time for another history lesson, because after wading through an entire internet of surprisingly creepy Cabbage Patch Kid cakes (Do. Not. Google.), I found one that is utterly adorable:
(By Go Wild Cakes)
Look at those hair ringlets! And she's even in an edible version of the box, with the birth certificate!
And finally, a confession: today's post was very nearly nothing but 10 or 12 Lalaloopsy doll cakes.
(By Viva La Cake)
And... and... [pointing frantically]...!!
AAAAA! SO CUTE!
Well, happy Doll Day, everyone! Now if you'll excuse me, I think I'm going to do a little celebratory shopping. ("John, sweetie, just how creepy DO you find tiny button eyes?")
