Fashionable Barbie Cake

Bake the cake in 2 or 3 bell shaped pans as you desire and use chocolate mousse as filling, strawberry or vanilla and coat the cake with buttercream. Freeze the cake for 20 min then as the buttercream gets a bit hard, smooth the sides of the cake with a wax paper. Cover the cake (looks like a hill) with fondant which serves as the gown or dress of the Barbie, then insert the Barbie on top. Decorate the Barbie then with any decorations you have for the cake.

Fairytopia Barbie Cake

For the frosting I used whipping cream (in carton) and mixed that with jell-o brand White Chocolate pudding (instant) mix. I then used food coloring to make my desired colors.

I placed the new Barbie's legs and feet in a protective covering (zip lock bag) and placed in middle of cakes. Then I proceeded to ice the cake.

There were about 15 screaming 3 year olds saying that they wanted Barbie cakes for their birthdays and, yes, boys included!!!

It's relatively easy to create a Barbie cake. Wilton sells a doll mold set that consists of a cake pan to create the skirt of the doll cake and a plastic doll top that is the doll body from the torso up which just sticks directly into the cake. You simply pipe directly on the doll to continue the decorations from the dress to the upper part of the body. Some bundt pans are shaped tall enough to work as the skirt of the cake.
