I wanted to make a Candy Barbie Princess Cake like those cute ones I see at the grocery store but didn't want to pay that not so cute price at the stores either. I searched the web for inspiration and found several wonderful cakes here at coolest-birthday-cakes.com that made me feel I could do it too.

I shopped for a bowl that was shaped well enough to give the dress top size. I found a ceramic one that looked great but needed another two layer 9 inch cake below it to keep the height level with the doll I wrapped in cling wrap. I had to improvise when using the ceramic bowl to bake a cake because it was too difficult to bake all the way through. I inserted a heavy glass into the center and that seemed to do the trick.

Since I don't really have a steady hand for piping, I inserted various candy in different ways and patterns to make the details in the dress. It got a little banged up while driving the cake to the party since hubby didn't pack it like I asked but thankfully, it's taste wasn't damaged ... and my lil girl LOVED it as everyone oohed and ahhhhed at it come cake time.

Thanks for the inspiration all!

Coolest Cinderella Doll Cake 52

Homemade Cinderella Doll Cake

I used a Cinderella doll from Walmart to put in this Cinderella doll cake. Because of the height of this doll, I had to bake a doll cake and an additional 9 inch round cake. It almost fitted together perfect when I put them together. I set the doll cake on top of the 9 inch round and only had to angle slice off a bit to get the dress to a consistent shape.

I used a long handled dessert spoon to dig the hole for the doll's legs a bit bigger. I wrapped her in saran wrap so she was not greasy and the little girl could play with her. Then I just frosted her smooth. I always use Wilton's buttercream icing. I just like the way it decorates.

I put a bunch of flowers around her dress just using all of the floral tips I had. The lace look on the front of her dress was cake tip 2. I just made a bunch of diamonds and put a star where they met. Not sure if you noticed, but I missed one star. Still drives me crazy looking at the pics. Very simple to make.

Homemade Cinderella Doll Birthday Cake

My daughter, Haleigh, wanted a Cinderella Doll Birthday Cake for her 5th Birthday. I searched and searched online for a cake that I thought I could make myself. After researching several sites, I found the instructions for the perfect cake on www.howdini.com. They showed a video of how to assemble the cake with step-by-step directions, as well as, ideas on how to decorate it. They showed a "princess" cake, so all I had to do was to adapt it to Cinderella. I highly recommend watching the video online so you can see their very helpful and useful tips.

I used three boxes of white cake mix and three cans of white frosting (that I tinted with blue food coloring). I bought some white edible pearls, blue accent icing, white accent icing and blue sugar sprinkles. I'm sure it would have cost about $40-$50 at a bakery but I was able to make it for around $15. I already had the Cinderella doll, so that was a savings!

It was a lot of fun to make and turned out really cute, if I do say so myself!
