Barbie Cake

Barbie Cake

I purchased two bowl from Wall Mart for this Barbie cake. One small one and one larger one. Bake the cake in the bowls.

After it was cooled, I put the small one on top of the large one and carved it to make the skirt flow. I cut the cake three times and filled it with a chocolate mousse and covered the outside with a thin layer of store bought buttercream. I covered the barbie with plastic wrap and stuck the barbie in as straight as I could. Then, I put it in the freezer until I rolled out the fondant.

When I was ready to cover the cake with fondant, I make a long cut till the center and put it around the barbie so that the cut would be at the front. I then took white fondant and covered the cut. To make the dark pink frills at the top, I just made a circle to go around the Barbie's torso and drew where I was to cut - with a toothpick. I cut the piece and put it on top of the light pink fondant. Next, I used a small cookie cutter to cut flowers out of the dark pink fondant. I stuck a small silver dagree in it and put it on the cake.

The torso was probably the trickiest part, it took me many times to get it just right. I covered the cuts with beads and icing. I then moved it onto a larger white cake that I had made, filled with strawberry jam and frozen.

I had made it for my little cousin's birthday party and it was a complete hit!

Barbie Marshmallow Cake

Barbie Marshmallow Cake

This Barbie cake required a regular cake mix. I used a 6 inch metal mixing bowl & baked it the time recommended for a Bundt. It was still liquid in the middle so I stuck three potato stakes (helps potatoes cook faster in the oven) in & it was done in 15 minutes. Any kind of metal rod would work. The recipe recommended covering it with foil & baking longer.

I frosted it with regular store frosting & added the marshmallows, which I had presorted by color. I used a lazy Susan so I could spin it around as I placed each row. After it was done I didn't like the way the doll's top was too bright for the dress so I add in the little dots where white icing was showing. It seemed to pull it together better. Using a lighter color for the top would be a great alternative. I also forgot to ice a necklace & bracelet on.

My mom made this cake for me when I was little, but she put the marshmallows on randomly in all four colors & it was cute as well.

I kept skirt of the cake under a glass cover overnight to keep the marshmallows fresher . Once I got to the party destination, I put the skirt on the sheet cake on three dowels to support it & then reinserted the doll body. The base of the cake was a standard 9x13 & I needed it for the number of people I was serving (twin party with adults & children).
