My daughter requested a barbie cake this year for her birthday. So I hopped on to YouTube and started searching for how to pull this off. My daughter loves ballerinas so I knew it had to have a ballerina barbie in it. After some browsing I had a game plan: 4 tiers, layered fondant flowers, white six-lets, lots of edible glitter and of course a barbie doll. It was not too hard to make, it did take several hours to make though so if you are going to try and make one "plan ahead".
Not bad for a first try... I am defiantly not going into the cake making industry or anything like that. I will just stick to making my own kids birthday cakes ;)
Next time I will have to purchase something smaller to write my daughters name with.
We ran out of room to do it with the six-lets and ended up with 2 E's on the bottom row.
Here are a couple of pictures I managed to take during the process.
I put plastic wrap around barbie during the frosting stage so that she would not get dirty.
My daughter seamed to be really happy with it
so I guess that's all that matters!
