I made this Birthday Barbie Cake following the Betty Crocker Recipe. This was my first attempt to make one of these cakes. My daughter was turning 7 and said :Mom I would love to have a Barbie birthday party. So I saw this website and saw how everyone tried this.
I didn't use the Fondant. Although Fondant looks beautiful and realistic, to me and others I know don't like the way it tastes. This cake does take a lot of time to make and decorate but I had lots of fun doing it. I really love the tip of using paper to smooth the frosting out. I found a ballet Barbie, added to her the 7 and hot glued it in her hand. I also found the star wands in her at the party store.
I made her hat out of pink foam crafting stuff, I had the white ribbon and used it at the last minute. Everything else on this cake is eatable. My daughter couldn't believe it was a cake, I got lots of compliments on this cake and really enjoyed it.
My stepdaughter was turning 3 and it was our first birthday with her as a "family" so I wanted to do something special for her. A friend gave me a Cabbage Patch kid cake pan some time ago, I've been wanting to use it, and this was my chance. I noticed that the cake pan kind of looked like her favorite dolly. So I decided to make this Cabbage Patch Doll Cake for her and make it look like her dolly.
She wanted a Vanilla cake so I used your basic cake mix and I also added a pudding mix, this always makes the cake extra moist (very yummy) after the cake was baked and time to cool down. I took some vanilla icing, divided it into 3 bowls to make my color icing. I needed to make red for the hair, blue for the dress, and some grey for the shoes and extras. It took awhile icing the cake but it was worth it. I think it turned out pretty good and my stepdaughter loved it!
This Homemade Birthday Doll Cake is a red velvet cake with butter icing I made for my sister Sarah's birthday. It's a three tier cake, the bottom two tiers were baked in round pans and the top most tier was baked in a small pyrex glass bowl.
I stacked the cakes one on top of the other, made a tiny little hole on the top, and then frosted the entire cake with butter icing. After which I got creative with different colours and patterns for the dress. And then I finally placed the doll in the little insert hole I'd left at the top.
This is my first ever Barbie doll cake, which I made for a friend's Hen Tea Party. I am very pleased with her, and it has inspired me to make more!
Using this site for information, I used a 9" cake tin and a smaller Pyrex bowl for the Madeira cake base. Then I cheated and made the skirt from ready-rolled royal icing, and decorated it using white piped icing and decorations.
