Excellent design! I made this for a friend's granddaughter's 11th birthday. I tend to do the cakes in my own way, just using the template. The changes I made were to do a double layer cake. It was a marble cake with chocolate filling. I used fruit roll ups as cuffs too and purple detaling around the edges. I agree, for some who aren't used to frosting cakes, it may help to freeze it before frosting. My suggestion is to use a crumbcoat of thinned out crusting buttercream frosting. It does take more time but it's worth it.
