Our God daughter Isabella was having her 4th birthday on Thanksgiving and was coming to our house to celebrate. I have 2 teenage boys so I was very excited to try something new. I came to this website for ideas on how to create a nice Barbie cake.
I used 2 German Chocolate cake mixes. I baked one Bundt pan cake and the other half of the batter I split between a 9 inch pan and a 10 inch pan. After the cakes were cool I put the 10 inch on the bottom then the 9 inch and the bundt cake on the top. I wrapped Barbie's bottom half in a ziplock baggie and inserted her into the hole of the bundt cake pressing her down through both bottom layers.
I trimmed the edge of the bundt cake smooth and tried to shape it like a dress. I used 5 batches of butter creme frosting and frosted the whole cake first with the white frosting. Between the layers too. Then I used the coconut frosting that is normally used on German sweet chocolate cake and frosted the overskirt and Barbies arms and torso. Then I piped around the edge of the skirt, the sleeves, neckline and muff.
My husband made this Barbie Cake for our daughter's Sweet 16 Birthday. The cake is made of Rice Crispy treats molded to form Barbie's skirt and fondant is layered over the cake. It is embellished with pink fondant at the waist with a jeweled belt. He then placed the "Fashionista Poseable Barbie" in the center of the mold, which he used a cardboard papertowel insert to make the hole. He then sculpted the skirt to look as if it were flowing. The cake itself is made of two 10" inch round Funfetti cakes layered with buttercream icing and then placed white fondant over the cake and finished with Zebra ribbon and a small jeweled ribbon attached in the back of the cake. He rolled fondant balls in pink, white and black to finish the cake around the bottom.
This cake was a real hit with our daughter's friends and it was absolutely perfect! (Prep time was about three hours total.)
This Barbie 2nd Birthday Cake is the first princess cake that I have ever made. I wanted to make one for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. I searched the internet for ideas and used some from various pictures. I used the Wilton princess cake pan to make the cake, the dress is white fondant on the bottom half and pink marble fondant was used for the drape. I used pink fondant to make the necklace and bracelet.
I used small fondant cutters to make the flowers that I put on the dress. Also, I make my own fondant, it's easy to make and tastes much better than the fondant you purchase. I hope you enjoy.
I made this Homemade Barbie Cake for my daughter on her 8th birthday. first time made a birthday cake. I bought a bowl you can put in a oven and two circle pan cakes, 1 10 inc other 8 inc. Once cooked put buttercream in between layer and on the dome cake. I put a barbie doll in and started to cover with fondant icing and decorate with bits bought from shop. If you want different color just add some food coloring to fondant icing. Rub in well.
