Barbie cakes are fun to make! I used the Wilton Wonder Mold for this cake. I used two cake mixes and filled the mold about 2/3 full. Cool the cake completely before frosting!
Then frost the cake with buttercream. Then cover the butter cream with fondant, letting it drape nicely and even giving her gown a train in the back. Once you have the fondant the way you like it, you can trim the bottom of excess. So be sure to use a very large piece. I used the excess that I trimmed off to create Barbie's bodice. It stuck right to the doll nicely. I felt like quite the fashion designer!
Wrap Barbie's legs tightly with Saran Wrap and gently stick her into the fondant-covered cake. You can always use frosting to build up her waist as necessary.
To make Barbie's dress appear shiny, I took a new paint brush and lightly dipped it in water, and painted her gown. This will make Barbie cakes look like Barbie is wearing a satin gown.
My daughter wanted a Barbie cake so I used a metal bowl for the chocolate cake mix. I baked it in there. I also made 3 small round cakes (yellow cake) for the stand. I used a dome lid from Dairy Queen to put on top of the bowl cake, or the dress part because Barbie is very tall and I didn't want to have to take her legs off like many people said they would need to do.
I wanted to make my daughter a Barbie cake that she would remember for years to come, so I searched sites for ideas and just couldn't find what I was looking for, so I designed the Homemade Barbie Birthday Dress Cake myself.
I used buttercream and I also used fondant because I wanted the dress to have a drape effect and it turned out just as I hoped.
