I made this cake using 2 boxes of ready mix,you know, all you add is eggs, oil and milk etc.
The instructions are all simple but remember to follow them. I used one round baking tin for one cake mixture as appossed to 2 for one box and 1 dome shape stainless steel dome shaped bowl and it ended up taking so long to bake through - LUCKILY NO BURNING!!
Anyway, one removed - it cooled down and then the sculpting.
I placed the round sponge on the bottom of the plate and then placed the dome shaped on top to sought of estimate how to go about this.
First I carfully trimmed the round the top dome to slant this down some more for the dress goen effect come from the waist of the doll. Always do this carfully and gently - you might need these off cutts.
The I place the doll inside the top to see what this look like - remember to step back and look at it with every step!!!
After this I removed the top and spread jam in the middle and then placed the top with the doll back on top. Carfully I cut a bout 1 cm around the bottom round layer and used this to fill the gap between the domne shaped and round shaped sponge to get the dress complete.
Then I iced it by placing a thin layer overall and waited anf then a nice stiff thick layer to complete.
I then used the marshmallows for decortation for the bottom of the ballgown and the flowers at the waist and suted it with some fairy dust.
On the day of the party I placed some flowers around the cake.
I made this Barbie Doll cake for my daughter's first birthday. She loves anything girly, so I looked online to see what kind of cake I could make her. I saw all the beautiful cakes on here and said I should give it a try.
I used 2 boxes of white cake mix. I used a Pyrex bowl and round pan. I stacked the cakes and made a whole for Barbie. For the first time I tried the fondant. I had a hard time trying to get the fondant big enough to cover the cake, I guess I needed more of it. I ran out of icing for the bottom of the dress to cover the wrinkles at the bottom.
Other than that it was pretty easy. I used white peppermint beads from Walmart for her top of the dress and also put them in the flowers on her skirt. I wish I would have sculpted the cake better for her dress but,next time I will know more about it.
My daughter kept saying Daddy my doll my doll. She is so proud of her cake. Have fun!
I used a box a Betty Crocker cake mix for this Barbie Doll Cake and made my homemade icing using 1 cup shortening, 1 stick of butter, 1/4 cup milk, ts van flavoring, and 2 lb bag powdered sugar. I baked the cake in the 2 qt. pampered chef glass bowl.
I let it cool for about an hour and cut a small hole out for the doll body i took the legs off, I read on here that they could cause the cake to break. The Barbie I purchased for it was to big since the cake didn't rise up as big as I expected so I went to the store and got a smaller doll.
I made it for a small child at church and she loved it.
I made this Barbie Doll Cake for my friend's daughter. She wanted a pretty princess cake. I didn't have a dome tin so I made two round cakes and put one on top of the other and shaped it. I draped fondant over the top and then stuck the barbie in it.
The trickiest part was making the bodice look neat. I used flowered ribbon to wrap around the waist and neckline and added fondant flowers to decorate, as well as a ribbon at the back.
