This Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea I made for my daughter's 4th birthday. I took a few weeks looking at different cakes (MANY on this site) and came up with my own. I didn't really know how I was going to make the dress part, but, standing in the store I got the idea to use a 4qt. mixing bowl that's oven safe. It worked well. But it took about 2 hours to fully cook 3 boxes of cake mix. I spayed the bowl really good with cooking spray to make sure that the cake would come out easily. Flipped the bowl upside down and let it cook for about 3 hours.
I placed the Barbie inside the cake. She's a little to tall so I put her legs in on an angle (I didn't want to have to cut the feet off) then frosted it. Frosting was very easy!!! I microwaved the frosting just enough that it would "run" down the cake. Poured strawberry icing on the cake in a few layers to give the riffle look. Then one time around with vanilla frosting on top. Last I put some sparkle sprinkles on top and around the very bottom to give some sparkle and I was done.

I made this Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea using a Dolly Vardon tin. I found that the Barbie's legs were too long for the cake and she stuck out the top so I added more icing to the top and then joined it together with a row of icing love hearts (no body knew). I also buggered up the back icing so I put another layer on the back to make it look like a train on the dress.
I cut out various shapes and stuck them on her skirt, covering any marks. Finally I made a shawl from left over icing to put over her shoulders to tie the whole thing in together. I found that sticking to a colour theme helps make it look better too.
This cake looks way better than it started out!! Excellent for a beginner like myself!! Cup cakes were basic vanilla and I used the extra icing cut outs and put them on top. I used wires to stand up the number '4's on the cup cakes for a 3D effect. Hope you like.
I made this Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea for my daughter's 6th birthday. I began by baking circle layers and using a cookie cutter to cut out the middle of the cake for the doll to go through.
Once I had enough layers, I began sculpting and shaving the cakes to the shape of a dress. Once the shape was finished, I began frosting with just regular vanilla frosting. Next I used blue frosting for the top of her dress and straps for her dress. I continued using the blue frosting adding flowers. Next I used blue gel for more designs on her dress. The flowers, around the bottom, were created using fondant. I used grape stems and attached the fondant to the grape stems to give it a more natural look.
This cake was a big hit and everyone thought I bought it and was asking me where they could get one.
This Barbie Doll Birthday Cake Idea incorporated a real Mintel Barbie doll (not a pick doll) which was inserted through the middle of the cake.
The gown was created using fondant icing in 3 different stages.
1. Base of cake was covered using White fondant 2. Using Pink fondant, I then created the bodist a mid skirt of the dress which was ruffled around the edges at the front to create flowing fabric. Each ruffle was sparingly dusted using pink lustre dust to add texture and dimension. 3. Using white fondant, i created a top skirt to free fall like a bridal train and again gently ruffled to give fullness.
To decorate I used a daisy plunger cutter and tiny pink candied balls to finish. Each piece was stick on using royal icing.
