Hi all,

DD wants the classic  ‘swimming pool’ cake from the Women’s Weekly cake book for her birthday. Most of the decorations are fairly straightforward but I’m not sure the best place to go to get the tiny plastic dolls to put in the pool. They need to be about 5cm tall or less. Any ideas where I might find something like that? I have access to Kmart/Target/etc but don’t have time to traipse around a billion shops looking, so any help would be hugely appreciated.

Could you use lego minifigs?

Try some "Hot Dollar" type shops - look for Baby shower "favours"

Baby shower favours are great - I didn’t even think of that! And if I can’t find anything there, we have plenty of lego minifigs - didn’t think of them either.

Knew EB would have some ideas. Thank you!!

Yes I have seen some of these in a cheap shop recently as baby shower favours.

We ended up using lego when we made that cake 😁
