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.
that's what I was thinking too...I was thinking a bundt cake with Barbie stuck in the middle then decorate.....
In my experience - a bundt cake isn't tall enough to form the skirt portion properly.
ah... yeah, i didn't think of that. good pointIn my experience - a bundt cake isn't tall enough to form the skirt portion properly.
Oh you're not alone. I stink at making cakes too. The only cake I've made that turned out awesome was a heart-shaped cake. I bake one round cake and one square cake, then half the round cake and attach it to two sides of the square cake with some frosting.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.
I made these @ the bakery....same exact one. We charged $10 for it. We had 3 cake rounds, cut in circle all same size, stack (no dowels needed) and then we used a knife to shape it. Iced it, and decorated it. Viola! To a lot of people the carving scares them away, but really, its easy!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?
You could always cut the legs off of the Barbie! lmao!!! j/k
