My daughter was going through this Barbie stage as she was about to turn 4 and she had decided that she would expect nothing less than a barbie cake....so as I promised her and got inspired by the pictures for a Homemade Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea online. I started off by baking 2 Betty Crocker chocolate swirl round cakes and topping them on one another( with a filling of jam and chocolate buttercream), 3rd one I made in a jelly mould so that it looked like the upper part of the flowy Barbie dress.
I made small holes in the centre of each cake with a spoon. Next I covered the mountain like structure with Betty Crocker vanilla frosting. Let it set in the fridge. Then I inserted my Barbie (wrapped in a cling film) and covered the whole cake in fresh whipped cream pink and white stars with my icing bag. I also used some jelly sweets that my daughter had in her stock and m&m sweets to make my Barbie cake look beautiful.
I tied a pink ribbon on her hair and it worked out really well for me. My daughter was so proud when I took this cake to her school for the celebration! It was easy and worth the effort!

I baked this Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea for my friend’s daughter's second birthday. I baked 2 round plain cakes and placed them one on top of the other. I made the top most cake smaller by cutting the sides. I arranged the cut pieces on top to get that conical shape.
I applied mixed fruit jam between the pieces instead of icing. My kids love it that way. I then inserted the Barbie doll inside the cake to hold the cake pieces together.
I started off the decoration with a pink vanilla icing. Then I used mixed fruit jam for the red colored decorations. I warmed the jam in microwave for about 15 seconds so that it is easier to spread. I then put jam in icing cone and spread it across the middle pleat of the skirt. I also used jam for the pattern of the dress. I used white sugar balls for the lacing and pattern on the skirt.
I decided to try and make this Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea after my 4 year old saw one in the store and asked for it for her birthday. The cost of the cake in the store was $40, so I thought after the initial investment, I'd be able to save money in the long run.
I purchased the pan at Michael's with my 40% coupon, baked my cake, then started my first experience with fondant! I practiced and practiced the little flowers and made them ahead to harden and "glue" them on with the frosting. I tinted the fondant and all the frosting the same pink color. I rolled fondant to put underneath the dress to make it look wavy. I wrapped fondant around the Barbie to look like her dress, then just added flowers.
I just made a doll cake for my daughter’s 6th birthday. I used a Wilton’s doll mold and the doll included in the set but replaced the head of the doll with a Barbie one. I used buttermilk cream to decorate since I prefer the taste of the buttermilk cream than icing.
I covered the top of the doll and the dress using a zig zag tip. Then I smoothed the lower part of the top and the dress. I used a small round tip to decorate the rest as seen in the photo.
This Homemade Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea didn’t take much time to do since I made it simple, but it was a totally hit at my daughter’s birthday party and she was proud of it very much.
