Barbie Doll Cake
I am going to start a new Category on my blog and it’s going to be called “Decorating”. It will include pictures of the cakes that I’ve made and if you ever need some ideas for decorating a cake, you’re welcome to browse.
This is a cake I made for a 5 year old little girl. She wanted a Barbie Doll Cake. We celebrated our daughters birthday just a day before, so she had the same exact cake, with the exception of the Barbie – hers had the “Brats” doll.
To make the cake, I used an 8 inch round glass bowl and 2 round 8 inch pans.
I baked two cakes, about 1.5 inch tall each, let them cool and split them in two.
Then I lined a glass (oven safe) bowl with aluminum foil, sprayed with nonstick spray and baked a 2 inch tall cake in there. The cake in the bowl takes quite a while to bake through, about 45 minutes.
To assemble, as I mentioned above, I split each baked cake in two. With a cookie cutter I cut out 2 inch round hole in the middle of each layer.
Frosted with frosting and let it chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Then you undress the doll, wrap it in shrink wrap and stick it inside the cutout cavity.
To pipe the skirt of the doll, I used the “rose” piping tip and just went up and down, around the skirt. UPD: found a video on youtube describing a similarly decorated Barbie cake. I think you will find this video very informative.
