Barbie Cake Tutorial (Take Two)

I made a Barbie cake for my younger daughter 3 years ago and made a tutorial then, but I had several problems that I alleviated this time around, so I thought I'd do another one!

Pans greased and floured

I made 2 cake mixes


I didn't want the batter to overflow the top of the batter bowl, so I used 2 round pans, also


I think I could have gotten the amount of one of the round cake pans to fit in the batter bowl

cooling

I had a lot of orange frosting in cans, so I used that between the layers.

I angled the edge of the top round cake to match the diameter of the top part

Add top

wrap Barbie's legs in Saran Wrap

I used already colored frosting, but I didn't use the fish shaped sprinkles!

The cake looked really tall, but it was just right!

Push Barbie into cake (this smooshes the cake some)

Barbie got an "updo" while I decorated the cake

All finished




The "reveal"


  
At the party


My 1st Barbie cake.
Interstingly, my younger daughter loves pink, but I could only find a blue dressed doll and my older daughter loves blue, but I could only find a pink dressed doll!
