Lightening fast Barbie Cake...(2 of 4)
This was the fastest Barbie cake I have ever decorated!! The Birthday Girl wanted a "Barbie Princess" cake. Lots of pink but that's all I really had to go on. I found the Ballerina Barbie on sale at Toys R Us and really liked the dress she had on! It was embossed directly on her so it seemed a shame to cover it with frosting! (note* If you decide to use Ballerina Barbie in a Barbie cake - be warned...if you move her just right, her legs fly open in what I can only assume is some sort of freaky ballerina move that a real ballerina might be able to identify. Since I was born the polar opposite of ballerina, all I know is that she kicked up one helluva fight when I tried to jam her into the cake!!*) Moving on...I did the entire skirt in zig zag pink frosting and I left the upper body alone. the cool part is that I was sooper pleased with how it turned out! :) And so was the Birthday girl:) Oh - the Wilton Wonder Mold (Barbie skirt pan) is too short for a real Barbie, so I have to build her up with a 2nd cake. For this one, though, I used a layer of rice krispie "treats" and it worked great!! Sometimes the simplest things turn out pretty great! :)
