My nieces are very into the Fairies. My niece Olivia wanted a Barbie Fairy Topia Birthday Cake. I have done other similar cakes, like Barbie using a special doll top that can be purchased at a craft store that is designed for use on a cake. They have as spike instead of legs. This would not work for the Barbie Fairytopia cake because I could not find Barbie with removable wings to put onto the topper to make her a fairy. I knew it would have to be just right.
I found a Barbie Fairy Topia doll and removed her clothes and then shoved the doll into the cake up to her waist. This was especially neat because she had fiber optic wings that lit up. The cake was baked in a large metal bowl. I made another four inch round cake to place on top of the bowl to give the necessary height to allow the doll to sink in all the way to the waist. Then I used butter cream frosting and pink fondant for her dress.

This 40th Birthday Barbie cake is a cake I made for a friend's 40th birthday. It consists of a 10" round Madeira cake filled with lemon curd and covered in fondant, with an edible pink ribbon around it.
On top is the Barbie part of the cake, also Madeira and lemon curd filled made using a Wilton Barbie cake mold. The Barbie is decorated with a white fondant which I draped over for the skirt - it then creates it's own pleats if you do it this way and looks more 'flowing'. I then sprayed it with pink lustre edible coloring, and decorated with edible pearls and ribbon.
I inserted the whole Barbie in the cake (wrapping her legs in cling film first), and used a pale pink fondant for the bodice. I also made mini Madeira cakes and covered in fondant and decorations to go around the bottom of the main cake.
Everyone loved the cake and I got good feedback on how yummy it was too!
This was the first cake I have ever made, i made it with my 3 year old son (he picked the cake we were going to make and the colours too). i baked 3 8" round cakes and 1 dome cake in an oven proof bowl, layered them with buttercream, put it in the freezer for an hour or so to set. then i carved it into shape, cut a hole for the doll using a paring knife. for the icing i used 2 tubs of betty crocker ready made buttercream, tinted purple (so hard to get a nice colour) spread it on and sprinkled it with pink glitter and candy hearts. my son took it to nursey with him and they all said it was delicious!! :)
This was the first barbie cake I make I use a round glass bowl and a round cake pan. And I use regular cake icing and put n color dye for the colors. I bought a doll that she like n place it in side the hole of the cake. Then I start icing it didn't look like it was going to come out right my baby said keep trying mom it will get pretty in it did n as I went on it came out nice. I put a pretty bow on the front dress n top part of the dress with a crown on her head, purse in her hand and the shoes on the side she love it n everybody else
