I made this Princess Cake for my daughter's 3rd Birthday. I got ideas off this site but in the end I made it my own. I started out with 2 boxes of Devil’s Food cake. I baked 1 cake in a Pyrex bowl (the larger one). It took about 1 box of cake and about 1/3 of another. I baked it at 325 for 1 1/2 hours. I then baked a 9in round cake. Let them both cool.
I then took the round cake and put it on the bottom of foil on my cake plate (I wanted a little sparkle and that is what I came up with). I iced it with white icing out of a can. I then added the bowl cake on top. Again I iced with the white icing. I let this sit over night.
Then next day I used the same white can icing and added blue food coloring (I had planned pink and purple when I started but a cute almost 3 year old asked for a "Cinderella" cake). I then used a size 16 tip and cover the cake with blue leaving the part next to her hips for white icing.
I started at the bottom and worked my way up. I used a half of doll from the local craft store. I took her hair and pulled back and used my daughters doll's crown for her head. I then added a little sparkle to her with cupcake sprinkles in sliver.
This Barbie cake was made for my beautiful grand-daughter Tara. She really didn't have a theme for her party, so after looking through the cakes on this site, I decided to do a Barbie cake.
I made the base out of a 9" by 13" sheet cake pan. Barbie's dress was made from a small bundt cake pan. When I started to insert Barbie, she was to tall. I had to remove her legs to sit her in the cake. I covered her torso in glad wrap and sat her in the center.
The icing is all buttercream that I colored with paste food coloring. I used chocolate cake mix from the box to make the cake. This was my first Barbie cake and I really enjoyed doing it. It was a really simple cake and my grand-daughter loved it.
My great niece loves Barbies so I offered to make her a Barbie cake for her 3rd birthday. I went out and bought the special pan for it and used 2 cake mixes for it.
I just stuck a regular Barbie in the middle of it, I had to dig out some of the cake to stick it in. For the icing I used half canned icing and half homemade icing. I think it turned out pretty good for my first attempt at a Barbie cake and she loved it!
This Barbie Birthday Cake was made for my friend's daughter's 7th birthday. She wanted six round cakes around a Barbie doll cake. I used a metal mixing bowl for the cake (butter cake). I let it cool overnight to make the cake little bit firm and easy to cut a round hole in the middle to insert the legs and body of the doll. I used boiled frosting.
