Barbie Princess Cake

My daughter wanted a princess cake for her third birthday. I admit to getting ideas from this wonderful site and others decorating site and sort of combining them how to my taste and needs.

I used an oven proof Pyrex bowl and one round cake pan. This took one cake mix. I saved out one cup of cake batter and colored it pink and used it on the top of the bowl cake, swirling it with a knife so it would be marbled with pink when we cut the dress open.

After the cakes cooled I used white icing to stack them and covered the entire cake in a thin layer of white icing. Then I undress a new barbie doll, saving her clothes to give to my daughter after he cake was cut. Wiped the doll down with warm soapy water and dried her off thoroughly. I centered her on the cake and pushed her down all the way.

This cake took 3-4 cups of icing, tinted pink and a number 16 star tip. I then just decorated it with stars working in a spiral pattern and then created her dress bodice on the doll. I used Wilton ready to use icing in the squeeze bottle to make the white swags and number three on the dress and pink decorators gel add the highlights on the bodice. I added some store bought icing roses around the waist of the dress, just attaching them with decorator gel.

My daughter LOVED her princess and everyone was so impressed that I made her myself!

My daughter has been pestering me to bake her a Barbie Princess Birthday Cake for her birthday for months. I used 3 boxes of Betty Crocker (Yellow/Chocolate fudge)cake mix. Two boxes are used for the skirt, Wilton mould and 1 box for the base of 8" round pan.

For the frosting, I made vanilla/almond frosting. Since my daughter told me that she wants a Barbie in white, I bought a Barbie on sale for S$19.90 only. I inserted the Barbie in the middle and decorated the skirt with 3 packets of marshmallow.

Sugar flower insert around the waist of the Barbie are to cover the hole. Simple and yet looks very professional done by bakery store!

This Barbie Princess Cake was made for some friend's twins 5th birthday.

I used a pudding bowl for the base, used a Barbie doll with her legs removed, and secured her with lolly sticks. I then covered the cake in buttecream, and started building the frills up of the skirt from the bottom.

I made the bodice of the dress out of fondant icing, and used the end of a paintbrush to dimple it, I then put small edible sparkles into the holes. I finished it off by making a pasmina out of fondant which I wrapped over her arms, and used pink lustre dust to make everything sparkly.

I made this Barbie Princess Birthday Cake for a 4 year old little girl. I used a whole Barbie, double wrapped her bottom half with seran wrap. Baked a cake according to directions for a "Doll Cake". Baked my cake in a 5" stainless steel bowl and a 5" round cake pan. I took a long serrated knife and cut a slit into the top center of the layered cake (5-layers), inserted the doll.

Used MMF fondant, edible shimmer dust, large candy sprinkles and silver edible shimmer paint. Cake serves 10-12 people.
