This is a picture of the Belle cake I made for my daughter's 4th birthday party. She loves the Disney princesses and the colour yellow so Belle was the perfect choice.

The cake is a Madeira sponge that I made. I baked it in an oven proof mixing bowl, which I covered with baking parchment to avoid browning too much. It took a long time to bake, 1 1/2 hours as it was a large cake.

When the cake had cooled I cut it in half and put jam in the center. I then measured the Barbie doll against the cake to make sure the cake was the correct height. The doll was a bit too tall so I put the cake on a square box covered in foil and cut a void for the dolls feet to go down into. With a knife I cut a hole in the middle of the cake to fit the doll through. I wrapped the doll in cling film and positioned her into the cake and down into the box.

I then put butter icing all over the outside of the cake, before icing. To ice the cake I used ready made fondant rollable icing. I coloured the icing yellow and rolled it out into flat sheets that I could wrap around the cake, to make the fabric of the dress. I also covered the body of the doll in icing, to make the bodice of the dress. To finish it off I piped detailing around the dress, with a piping bag, then I added edible silver balls.

My daughter was over the moon with her cake and all the other mums wanted to know how I did it, a great success!

My daughter Lily wanted a Belle Birthday Cake for her 4th birthday party. I used the Wilton wonder mold pan with a homemade cake recipe. I wanted to use a "real" Belle Barbie sized doll so I did put the cake on top of two foam rings to prop it up a bit. I made my own marshmallow fondant and after coating the cake with a layer of buttercream, I rolled the fondant into tear shaped pieces and draped them around the cake form.

I then added edible glitter and pearls to make it a bit fancier, as well as the original skirt that the Belle doll was wearing to give it a finished look. It got rave reviews at the party and my daughter loved it.

I made this Belle birthday cake for my friend's daughter's birthday and I think it turned out great. I have only used fondant once before and decided to give it another try on this cake. I learned a lot while making this and, next time, hope to be a better dress designer with sugar!

I iced the cake at first with a bit darker yellow icing than desired so that, when overlaying the fondant, which turned out lighter than planned, the correct color was achieved.

I used the Wilton cake pan and the real Belle Barbie for the authentic look.

How did you get the real barbie doll to fit into the wilton cake pan cake? The hole is so small..? I'm trying to make one for my daughter's birthday and I haven't figured out how I am going to do it. Thanks!
