First, I wrapped Barbie in plastic before I made the Barbie Birthday Cake . I baked 2 QT Pyrex bowls, grease well! I used 2 boxes white cake mix. One 8 " round I used chocolate (you'll have leftover batter for cupcakes).
Bake the cakes at least the night before as the Pyrex takes FOREVER to cool. I cut the Pyrex and added a layer of buttercream and used buttercream for the 8 " layer, to make the doll stable and for crumb coat.
A star tip made the doll's bodice and the piping on the bottom. Kids helped with the rest by frosting her and adding hearts and sugar sprinkles.
The hat is scrapbook paper with ribbons. We had the small wand but it took a while to figure out how to get her to hold it.
This website gave me the confidence to make this cake but I was surprised with how forgiving this cake is to make.
I just finished my first Barbie Birthday Cake attempt, a good cake design for an amateur like me. A very fun cake to make!
I used one box of cake mix, in a 2 qt bowl- but to do it again would use at least one and a half boxes of mix. I am not very good at smooth frosting (I prefer starring) so I used the serrated edge of my cake knife (which I frost with as well) to make grooves in the white part of the dress. I liked this textured look.
It was a pretty easy cake for me who is not very talented. It is fun to design your own dress. We did have to amputate Barbie's legs due to the shortness of the dress. I don't think there will be any permanent damage though, should pop back together fine.
This is a Theresa Barbie Birthday cake.I made 2 chocolate sponges and bought a small sandwich cake. I used jam to stick them together. I also trimmed the cakes to make them 'dress-shaped' and then smothered them in butter icing.
I made a hole at the top of the cake to put Theresa in. Found out that her legs were too long so had to take them off. (They went back on easily so no harm done!)
I also bought some white fondant icing that was already rolled out and laid it over the cake. The icing was a bit short at the front so I infilled with pink butter icing. I stuck Theresa in on top and then decorated the dress with cake decorations (stuck them on with butter icing).
Also decorated Theresa with pink butter icing too.
This Barbie Birthday Cake I made for my daughter's 3rd Birthday! I made it using 3,9 inch cake pans along with one cake made in a Pyrex glass bowl.
I also bought a brand new Barbie and wrapped the bottom part of her body in plastic wrap and inserted her into the middle of the cake where I earlier cut holes in the cake for her body. Lastly I decorated her dress using a piping bag with a star tip.
Everyone loved the cake especially the birthday girl! This was my first attempt at making anything like this, thankfully it turned out exactly how I pictured it. For anyone considering making this just go for it,use your imagination and most of all have fun!
My 23 year old daughter wanted a Barbie birthday cake, so I decided to make one for her myself. I used the Wilton Barbie Cake pan and the Wilton Barbie instructions. I used an extra 8" layer below the cake to add enough height for the Barbie to fit.
The cake is covered with fondant tinted pink. Tapered logs of fondant were put under the skirt to make the ruffles. The dress is decorated with sugar flowers made from royal icing. There are 23 miniature cupcakes around the cake with the candles. She loved the cake!
