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.

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.

I wouldn't cut her legs off! Why waste a Barbie? Your daughter can have it as a toy!
