1. Mix batches of light pink and black icing using Pink Liquid Airbrush Color and Black Liqua-Gel Color.

2. Ice the cake.

3. Trim the white ends from the Fashion Variety Designer Prints™ sheets (Item #45250) using a ribbon insertion tool (Item #43-07PME); apply prints to the middle of the cake’s sides.

4. With pink icing in a #8 plain round tip, pipe an elevated, triangular skirt form in the center of the cake.

5. With Black icing in a #8 tip, pipe the dress top and sleeves; also pipe a beaded border along the bottom edge of the Designer Print™ sheets. With a #4 plain round tip, pipe the dress form’s neck and base.

6. Create the additional skirt layers using Rose Pink Shimmer Ribbons™ (Item #45558). Remove one strip from the backing and gently fold as you would a paper fan; apply to the    bottom of your skirt mound. Repeat.
   - Leaving them on the backing, cut the remaining Shimmer Ribbons™ into three inch (approximate) strips. Remove one and gently fold lengthwise, diagonally; trim overlap. Repeat until  you have at least 10-12 folded strips.
   - Apply strips one by one, starting at the outer edges of the skirt mound, and work your way in.

7. Using the fluted side of a pastry wheel (Item #1323), narrowly trim both sides of a few Black Shimmer Ribbons™ (Item #45815); use these to make a border around the dress form.

8. With a #4 tip and pink icing, pipe a bead border around the interior of the Shimmer Ribbons™ frame, as well as along the top of the Designer Print™ design.

9. With a #8 tip and white icing, pipe a bottom border.

10. Finish with Fashionable Daisies Assortment  Dec-Ons® decorations (Item #45822) and a pink bow from the Deluxe Baby Assortment  Dec-Ons® decorations (Item #32804), as shown.
