I made this Ballerina Barbie Cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday. I used 2 yellow cake mixes and baked for an hour and 20 minutes in a 3 quart steel bowl. I froze the cake, and then frosted it while frozen to avoid crumbs. I used the Wilton buttercream icing recipe, using real butter and real vanilla, and the rose pink coloring.
Then I used the #32 tip to make a large shell border around the base. There was a gap, due to the cake being a bit domed at the bottom, so the large shells worked well to fill it. I pushed a ballerina barbie through the top of the cake, and then I used the #16 tip to make small stars around Barbie's waist. Then I bought some Wilton candy hearts and decorated the skirt. It was a big hit!
I made this Abbie Doll Cake for my oldest daughter's 5th birthday. I have been wanting to make one of these forever and this was my first attempt. It was actually a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. This cake took (2) boxes of cake mix split between (1) 8" round and the large pampered chef measuring cup. It worked out well but I wish it would have been about an inch taller total...I had to finish the dress with icing right at her hips.
Overall, it was slightly time consuming but simple. I look forward to trying it out again. I can't wait until my little girl gets to see it tomorrow!
This Ballerina Barbie Cake was dead easy to make! I used a Dolly Varden tin with two packet mixes of a vanilla cake (I coloured this pink). When the cake is cold, use a sharp knife to make a hole in the top. Then remove the legs from your ballerina Barbie and stick her in the top.
Then I whipped up some cream and divided in half. I coloured half pink and decorated the skirt, piping the edges and decorating with gold cacous. The "birthday cake" was the trickiest part. This was just a matchbox covered in pink paper and fixed to the Barbie with toothpicks.
This is a chocolate cake, I didn't have the special pan for the skirts so I made two 8 inch round cakes and two 6-inch round. I stacked them and carved what I wanted for the skirt. I put a bit of icing on so the fondant would stick.
I rolled out the fondant and applied it to the cake and to the Barbie itself. Then I took a rubber stamp to make the impressions in the skirt. After that I took some burgundy food color and a little vodka and painted in the impressions.
Hope you like my homemade all fondant Barbie cake!
I made this Abby Monster High doll cake for my daughter's 12th birthday. It took 3 cake mixes. I used the pampered chef mixing bowl for the dress. I used a 10 round cake pan for the bottom. My daughter came up with the design. I made a butter cream frosting.
