My daughter turned 3 this year and was very excited. Before bed she said to me "I'd really like a Barbie cake for when Grandma and Grandpa come tomorrow". This was at 7:30 pm. How was I going to pull this off?! (I had been planning some cupcakes but this I was not ready for!) Well by midnight, I'd done it!
I went on this website for ideas but didn't have any bowls that would work like what the other moms were suggesting, so I used a bundt cake and a 4" spring form pan (you could possibly use a cup cake). I halved the bundt and iced in between (I first piped around the perimeter and then used a raspberry jam/pudding mixture as my middle just for the tastiness).
I used a skipper doll because she is shorter and therefore easier to work with. I used a top from the new Barbie we had gotten for her birthday as the inspiration for the design and as the top of the dress itself so that I didn't have to "pipe"one on.
I put a hole in 4" cake and slipped Skipper in and "molded" the cake around her. From there I did my base icing (I use the buttercream icing recipe from the Wilton website and put extra at the waist of Skipper to bring the skirt up to the proper place on her body)and then decorated with pink icing and skittles (what kid doesn't like skittles?!).
I was very pleased and so was my daughter. The look on her face the next morning was priceless!
I made this Barbie Doll Cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. This was a recipe that came with the Pampered Chef Classic Batter Bowl.
I baked 2 boxed chocolate cakes (separately), both in the bowl, then turned them out to cool. Once cooled and leveled, the bottom 2" was cut off the large end of one of the cakes to serve as the bottom of the dress (and add extra length).
Then the 2nd cake was placed on top of the base from the other cake and secured with icing to form the entire skirt of the dress.
Once the dress was assembled, a hole was cut out of the top. I used a small measuring spoon to hollow out the hole for where the Barbie was placed. To prepare the Barbie, I chose to remove the legs (which snap off at the waist) and the clothing that came on it, then wrapped the bottom in a small baggie so as not to get cake crumbs in the leg sockets.
Once the cake was assembled and the doll was inserted securely in the hole, I finished the cake by smoothing icing on the dress, creating a bodice for the dress using a star decorating tip, and adding flowers and a rope at the base for decoration.
The icing used was the standard Wilton cake decorating icing with golden yellow coloring for the main part of the dress and bodice, and pink and lilac purple icing for the flowers.
I did this lovely Barbie Doll birthday cake for my pastor's daughter. My first Barbie cake. Inside also tasted great.
First I baked the cake then turned it upside down on the board, dug a little hole in the middle. I coated it with butter icing then covered it with pink Sugarpaste. I took off the Barbie's legs, covered it with cling film also covered the hair before pushing it through the hole.
This Homemade Barbie Doll Birthday Cake was made out of yellow cake mix and vanilla icing. I used a dome pan where I put the Barbie doll in and I crumbed iced it first then I used a rose tip to make the dress.
