For this Barbie Princess cake I started with two heart shaped pans and made the base (small heart on top of large heart). I then used a small dress pan that bakes four dresses at a time. I also purchased the small doll torso from Michaels. I tried matching hair color for each princess I created.
I decorated each doll according to the color dress they wear. I bought decorator's icing from Walmart. One large tub is more than enough. I suggest using different tips for each princess to give the cake versatility.
Once you decorate the dolls let them sit for an hour or two. Once the icing sticks you can decorate your base. Then, using a spatula move your dolls into position. Since there were 8 dresses and 6 princesses we used the last two as decorations. They were freely decorated and we placed crowns and flags on top of them.
Another idea is to make a banner that says Happy Birthday - use two toothpicks to hold it up. This is real time consuming so make sure you give yourself plenty of decorating time.
My daughter loved this cake, as did all her guests. To be fair we played a game in which the girls picked apples that either said doll or thanks for playing. That really helped in deciding who got one of the princesses off the cake.
I got so many ideas from all the submissions on this site, so I wanted to add mine too.
I used a small pampered chef batter bowl and 2 round cakes that i cut down to scale. I had lots of trouble getting the bowl part of the cake to cook properly, took way more time than stated.
I got a Cinderella doll because the hair was already up and it came with a crown. The dress is made from homemade MMF, which is sooo super easy and delicious... I ate way too much of it while assembling the cake. I found it easier to work with right after I made it rather than the batch that I had made a few days earlier, it was more pliable. I wanted the star flower designs anyways and they were good for covering up the little imperfections. M y daughter just sat and stared at it when she got up in the morning, that was priceless. I used the clear elastics that came on her shoes to wrap around the number candle and her wrists.
My daughter LOVED her homemade Barbie princess cake.
This Barbie Princess Birthday Cake was done for a friend of mine who had seen a previous Barbie cake that I had done for my own daughter.
I love doing these. The fondant I make from scratch as with the cakes and buttercream. So lots of butter and good stuff in these. I try to cut down on the sugar in the cake itself as everything else is so sweet. The roses are made from the fondant - each rose is started with the callyx, then each petal added on top. Lots of finicky work but worth it in the end.
Hope you enjoy!

I made this Belly Dance Barbie Birthday Cake for a 50th birthday party for a friend who is a professional belly dancer. The cake was chocolate and there was chocolate frosting under the plastic icing. I covered the skirt with edible glitter.
The beaded bra and belt were both hand stitched. My friend's favourite flowers are frangipanis so I used these to embellish the 50 candles. This is my second attempt at a Barbie cake, the first was a mermaid cake.
