This Barbie Birthday Cake was my first time making this kind of cake. It took 3 days. The first day I used 2 boxes of brownie mix for the bottom 2 layers (9 3/4 inch). For the skirt I used pound cake, 2 boxes and a 6 inch pan. For the rounded top I used a ovenproof glass bowl.

On the second day I iced and stacked everything together. I put dowels in the middle of the bottom 2 layers, put 7 inch cake board on top. Wrapped cardboard center from paper towels with foil, made holes in the center of each layer of the skirt with it and stacked the skirt with cardboard rod in the center.

On the third day I decorated. I made fondant a few days before, colored it light blue. Covered Barbie and her skirt. Used spray-on food color for the bottom of the dress and bottom layer. Used butter cream and royal icing roses (made them a month before) to decorate bottom tier. Used silver food color to put dots on the dress. The idea is that Barbie's dress matched my daughter's dress. She was thrilled. My son's first birthday cake is next.

Homemade Barbie Birthday Cake

I made this Barbie Birthday Cake for my daughter's 5th Birthday. She wanted a Barbie cake that looked more like her, so I used her Mulan doll. I baked 2 8in. round cakes and 1 cake in a pampered chef batter glass bowl. I used white butter cream frosting between the 3 layers and as a crumb coating all over. I made white marshmallow fondant with regular marshmallows and pink MMF with strawberry marshmallows.

I rolled 5 8 inch "logs" and placed each on vertical from waist to the bottom and that made the pleats in the dress once the fondant was placed over it. I used the white butter cream frosting and cut out pink fondant flowers to embellish the fondant dress and trim the bottom of the dress. I made jewels out of the strawberry MMF and trimmed the jewels with butter cream frosting on a little mirror for the Birthday candles.

I got the idea for the sign that Mulan is holding from this site, so thank you to the poster that submitted that photo!
