Coolest Princess Barbie Birthday Cake
My daughter kept changing her mind about what type of cake she wanted for her 3rd birthday party. It kept changing between Peppa Pig, Minnie Mouse, Disney princess and Barbie! So I didn’t start planning her Princess Barbie birthday cake until a few days before. I have only sculpted a few cakes before so wasn’t quite sure how it was going to turn out, but it actually was one of the easiest I have made!
I used a Pyrex round bowl to get the top of the skirt shape and 2 small sandwich tins to build up the height, once butter creamed and jammed between all layers, I stabilized it all with a kebab stick and then sculpted the sponge to get full affect of skirt. Then I dug out a small dip at top and checked that barbie with no legs fitted in! Then crumb coated it with butter cream.
Next I rolled and cut small strips of white icing and using a cocktail stick I rolled over the strip edges to make ruffles and attached them all around the base of the skirt, I did 2 layers. Then kneaded some white icing with a drop of pink food coloring, rolled it out to a large circle and carefully placed over the top, working quickly to get a draping effect and trimming where necessary.Then added some pink picking onto top Barbie doll and stuffed her into the hole!
The rest was just decoration, a few flowers, a bow on the back and a large 3.
I was really pleased with the outcome and my daughter loved it.
