It’s the new craze in cakes these days, and a great cake idea for kids or Barbie Collectors – The Barbie Cake!
I’ve seen loads of these on the internet and always wondered how to make a Barbie cake, they looked so difficult, but in fact, as long as you know how to make a basic sponge and make icing you will be fine. The round sponge layers are tiered and held in place with icing, then using a cookie cutter you make the holes in the middle of the cake to insert the doll, you don’t have to cut her in half.
The fun bit is definitely the frosting part, it looks so yummy. One good tip is to wrap your Barbie before you insert her into the cake, so she doesn’t get covered in icing. Also, if the doll’s hair is long tie it up first so it’s not trailing in the cake.
If you pick a Barbie with a bodice style top or dress, it makes it easier to frost the top part. Go crazy with sparkles or decorative edible bits like hundreds and thousands.
Let your ideas flow with this, you can even make a Ken doll cake!
And hey! Who says Ken can’t wear a dress?
