Homemade Barbie Cake

I am new at making decorated character cakes but I got the inspiration and idea from this site to make this Barbie cake. I really thank all the members who have contributed so many wonderful cakes. I made this cake for my daughter's 8th birthday which falls on 31st Dec.

I baked a strawberry cake mix in a Pyrex glass bowl. But only after I baked I found out that 1 cake mix is not enough. Again I baked 2 packs of chocolate cake which was too much for the 2 litre bowl. I finally cut the chocolate cake and fitted it under the sliced strawberry cake to form the skirt. I cooled it completely and then made a small opening at the top to keep the barbie.

I used buttercream icing with Wilton blue and green gel colours and piped with Wilton nozzle 2010. I dint make the base separately since the height of the skirt was perfect for the barbie. I inserted the Barbie's torso only by removing the legs. I dint frost the cake. I directly piped the flowers using the icing.

I piped the bow for the Barbie using chocolate icing using the Wilton nozzle 104.

While cutting the strawberry and chocolate cake, layers looked and tasted amazing with the icing.

Homemade Barbie and Purse Cake

Homemade Barbie and Purse Cake

I made this Barbie cake for my 11 year old. I liked both the idea of a purse and a Barbie. So I did both.

The base of the cake are two 9'13 cakes put together. After the cakes were cooled I placed them in the freezer till hard. Then I made white frosting in the texture of playdough. I rolled it out to fit the top of the two cakes. Then froze the cake.

For the Barbie I used 3 different sized round cake pans and then placed them biggest to smallest. I froze those cakes till hard. I then frosted the layers so that it was forming a dress shape. This frosting was more soft. Then I froze it. I then rolled out yellow playdough and formed it around the frozen dress. I placed the top part of Barbie in and formed the dress and cut out a frosting using chilled frosting that could be cut and shaped.

With the purse I used a 9in round cake pan. After cake was baked and cooled I cut it in half, frosted the two together with more soft frosting then froze. Then rolled out chilled frosting and covered the purse. I use different sized round lids for the circles on the cake.

Love your Cake
by: Matty

I love your cake. How long did it take you to make it? Did you make your own frosting. If so how did you make it?

Play dough?

Did you really use play dough, or fondant that was like play dough??

I baked my Barbie Cake in a large pampered chef glass measuring cup. Once cooled I sliced off the bottom to level and frosted with white frosting and made the roses out of strawberry frosting on wax paper and let sit in the freezer to harden.

I used a doll torso with a pick from the craft store and inserted it into the center and built up her dress with white frosting in a pastry bag. I used a damp paper towel to smooth the frosting and once dried I sprayed the entire dress with pink edible spray coloring. I brushed all of the roses with a edible pearl dust and arranged them on the dress and used a pastry bag to decorate the back and bottom trim.

To finish her off I brushed the rest of her dress with the pearl dust.

I made this Barbie cake for my cousin's little girl's birthday party. I had lots of fun making it and it was so easy to make. I made a regular size square cake for the bottom layer. The dress is made out of an oven safe bowl. I cut a hole out of the top part of the round cake for the dress.

I had to remove the Barbie legs to be able to place the dress just right on her. So you may want to buy a cheap Barbie, so you can throw it away after. The icing is put on with a medium size star tip. Super easy and fun to make.
