August: Piece of Cake!

Post  KiraKira on Fri Jul 29, 2016 11:10 am

As the saying goes..."A party without cake is just a meeting!"



The August challenge of Dal's 10th Anniversary Celebration focuses on cake.  It shouldn't be too hard if your Dals are as fond of sweet treats as mine are.  This is a very relaxed, mellow challenge.  All you have to do is post in this thread something to do with cakes & baking.  Here are some things that you can do, but do not be limited to this list!  As long as your post references cakes in some way, that counts!

*Photograph your Dal(s) with a cake (real or fake)
*Share a favorite cake recipe
*Make a cake prop for your Dal and share your picture here
*Bake a Dal-themed cake
*Dress your Dal in a cake-themed outfit



Every cake post counts as an entry for a drawing at the end of August.  Each post will get you a ticket in the drawing pool, so feel free to enter as often as you like!  I supplied several Rilakkuma Rement Cake blind boxes as prizes (I think there are 6), and at the end of the month, the cakes will be given out based on a random name drawing. (And hopefully, we'll have at least six different people posting--I've excluded myself from the challenge).



I hope that there will be lots of participation! Looking forward to seeing some fun cake photos!

This sounds like fun! Perhaps I will bake a Dal-themed zucchini cake - gotta use that stuff up somehow.

Oh my, now I want to see a Dal-cake! Surprised Like you know how they make the barbie cakes? But instead there is a Dal standing in the middle. (She would obviously need support and protection, but still!) Too bad I am not even really into baking, let alone that I could make a cake like that! Sad

Your pics are so cute! Smile My favourite is the first one! What is the cake made from? It looks so realistic, especially on the bottom! Like, umm... spongy?

Sounds like a fun and creative contest! Your photos are adorable, too, KiraKira.

And Siniirr has gotten things off to a great start. Cinnamon's cake looks yummy!

This is a great excuse to bake, purchase, and last but certainly not least, consume copious amounts of delicious confectioneries!

I guess I should look through my various cake recipes... oddly, it seems I make pies more often.  Question

I'm sure you could get credit for a Dal-themed pie as well.

This one's an oldie, but V-det was happy to get a new outfit out of it, even though we didn't go with the PieBird idea in the long run. (The clue is in the text in the book on her righthand side. Or just watching Good Eats.)

Ha, very funny.

I'm having my doll club over for a picnic potluck Tuesday. I bought a cream cake and hope to arrange a Dal inside it for that event and for this event!

Very cute and creative photos so far!

The pie definitely counts...we don't discriminate when it comes to baked goods. Smile

I've never heard that saying about a party without cake, but it certainly sounds reasonable! Laughing
I only have a re-run for this one, so far... and I thought I'd taken it with a cake, but it's a pie.

I love that photo, Alliecat! Cakes and pies are equally delicious in my book.

Nice challenge, I have been watching greatest British baking show . Cakes are all I think about. Since Şehvar already got a nice cake as a gift from gift exchange we should be good to go.

"It wasn't me!" laughing evil I take no responsibility on this! ;D
Hangry looks so cute in there tough! I would definitely eat it! It must be dalicious!

I also love everyone else's pictures too! It is so nice this rolled right on full speed, I enjoyed all the pics! Very Happy
I actually even like pies better than the normal cake(s) here, so I am definitely agreeing about the pies! <3 When I was kid I never ate birthday cakes on the parties and when I had a birthday I always had ice cream cake! Mom made awesome cakes, my favourite from them all was a train. I still remember it! Smile

Sunny may not have been happy about being in a cake, but I bet the Doll Club was delighted! So cute!

Very Happy

It's not as exciting as you might think. The club is almost 50 years old (!), and most of the members are in their 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. No one else is really into modern fashion dolls and BJDs like I am. Still, it's nice to be around people who get it.

Edit: Oh, and they did like the cake. I also set up a long picnic table for the Barbies. I'll post a photo of that somewhere too.

Dals & sweet treats are a great combination.

Very Happy

Looks like your girls had a fun time with their doll-sized cake, and of course, no one can resist the real thing! I love that last photo.
