Homemade Barbie Birthday Cake

I made this Homemade Barbie Birthday Cake for my daughter's third birthday. I used a Duncan Hines eight inch round yellow cake for the bottom layer, which I baked according to the directions on the box. I baked a white Pillsbury cake for the top layer in a medium sized glass Pyrex bowl, which I sprayed generously with cooking spray. I baked this layer at 350 for 35-40 minutes. I used a little over half of a mix, filling the bowl two-thirds full.

After the cakes cooled, I inverted them onto waxed paper. I frosted the top of the eight inch round cake with white buttercream frosting and placed the "dome shaped" cake on top. I took the legs and clothes off the Barbie and carefully placed her in the center of the cake.

For the frosting on the dress, I combined a vanilla pudding mix with one cup of milk. I mixed until combined. Then I added a half teaspoon of vanilla and folded in one container of Cool whip. When combined, I put in the refrigerator for fifteen minutes to let the frosting set. Then I swirled on the frosting to make a "poofy" look for the dress.

For the top of the dress I tinted a small can of vanilla pre-made frosting pink and piped it on using a number eighteen star tip. It was a very light, delicious cake that everyone raved about!

Homemade Barbie Birthday Cake

My daughter was determined to have a Homemade Barbie Birthday Cake like the ones in the store, but they were way too expensive so my task began. As she really wanted to have a Barbie Island Princess cake, I used the doll she had, pictured on the left, as a guideline. This is the homemade Barbie cake I created for my daughter's fourth birthday party.

I used a glass measuring cup to bake the cake, which was, in fact, the bottom part of the dress from the doll's waist down. I then wrapped another Barbie, unclothed, in cellophane and, making a very slight cut in the middle of the cake, gently pushed her down into it. I didn't want to cut a hole since she may not have stayed standing.

I put a zip lock bag over her body as I decorated the cake, so her hair and the rest of her upper body didn't get covered with icing. You need a steady hand but it turned out amazingly well, I think. I put icing on her upper body as well and used silver candy balls to decorate. I also used a toothpick to draw on the scrolls on her dress. I even put a necklace around her neck with icing and gold candy balls. My daughter LOVED it!

This is my first Barbie birthday cake. It was much easier than I expected!! I started by baking 2 6" round cakes and 2 8" round cakes. The skirt is chocolate and the base is marble. I stuck them in the freezer (this helps with icing and sculpting) over night.

I took the 2 6" cakes cut the tops off both spread butter cream over the top of one and placed the other on top. I then shaved off layer by layer until I was happy with the shape of the skirt and covered it with a light layer of butter cream (this is a necessary step for fondant to mold and stick properly). Colored and rolled my fondant and started decorating!

For the 2 8" cakes I did the same steps as I did for the 6" cakes.

For my daughter's 7th birthday, I wanted to try something that we hadn't done before. She loves Barbie so we gave it a shot! It was my first time baking/making a Barbie Birthday cake, let alone something more than a sheet cake! lol.

It was an all day project for me, as I have 4 kids plus 2 I babysit for, but the smile on my baby's face was TOTALLY worth every second I spent preparing this cake for her!
