2Reserving ½ cup, coat each cake stack with butter cream to create 3 domes. Push doll into top of each muffin so only the waist up is visible.
3SPRINKLE SKIRT: Using a rolling pin, flatten each mini mallow. Arrange 3 rows around base of 1 cake, pressing into butter cream. Scatter sprinkles over remaining uncovered skirt to cover. Tint reserved butter cream pink. Using a piping bag fitted with a small star nozzle, pipe loops of butter cream around base of cake to cover top edge of marshmallows. Press an icing flower onto top point of each loop.
4POLKA-DOT SKIRT: Scatter sprinkles over skirt to cover. Press on fresckles and Smarties for polka dots.

Try using other types of candy and piped icing patterns to decorate the dolls’ skirts, matching the colours to their tops.
