    Default 50 bucks for a cake!!!

    So it's my baby's 5th birthday. We aren't having a party for her but we will be going to my parents house and I told her she could help me pick out her cake. OF course she insisted it had to be the cake that's made with a real barbie.
    I remember my older daughter having one like this but I can't imagine I paid 50 bucks for it. Really it's not a very large cake.
    I didn't order it but I'm thinking I could do it myself.


    anyone ever make one of these? Any ideas on how to do this without buying a special pan?

    Here is what I would do. Bake several round cakes. Stack them, layered frosting to hold them up. (May need little wooden dowel rods for support). Stick Barbie in middle.

    Decorate.

    You will do AWESOME! Post pictures please!

    ETA--I saw one site that said to bake the cake in a glass pyrex bowl--I never would have thought to do that. It's certainly easier than my suggestion of baking multiple round cakes.

    In my experience - a bundt cake isn't tall enough to form the skirt portion properly.

    Yea, imagine my horror when I gave my neice my barbie as a child. When I went to visit the head was lying on the floor. Apparently the dog had a habit of doing things like this.

    Don't forget to post pictures of the barbie cake.

    there used to be a pyrex bowl of the size of the dress you could cook up the cake in and then a pretty barbie and you decorate the dress... i bet she would love to dress it up with sprinkles and such

    Pyrex bowl is a great idea, but I would be worried about it cooking all the way through. You could also bake a few round cakes and then stack them up and carve them into a skirt shape. I bet it will look great whatever you do!

    I have just the pyrex bowl. Looks like I'm off to buy a barbie. Will post pics when it's done on MONDAY.
    Lucky for me my kids prefer when I make things for them rather then buying. Warning: I may have many talents but cakes are not one of them.
