This is such a fun cake. Pampered Chef's large batter bowl is the perfect size and is shaped more like a skirt than a regular bowl is. I think you might want to get the Barbie bodice cake topper (at Walmart or a bake shop); that will totally alleviate the leg issues. Also, if you cook it @ 200-250 degrees for 2hours, the cake will bake more evenly.
I made this as directed, and the cake IS NOT tall enough for Barbie's legs to be covered by her "gown". I had to make another 8" round to use as a base to make the cake tall enough to cover her legs. Should I have put Barbie's legs in at an angle? Shouldn't that be in the directions? Would it even fit then? The end product is darling, but this is a major point.
If my photo is approved mine is the Cinderella Barbie cake. I made this for my dd's 2nd birthday she loves Cinderella. I thought of revising this recipe because I made alot of changes but decided it best if I shared them here: I used 2 boxes of french vanilla cake mix and used 1 can diet Sprite per cake mix in place of all additional ingredients. I have a set of 3 (small medium large) pyrex bowls so I baked part of the batter in each bowl and created a 3 layer cake. I frosted the cakes with 2 jars of butter cream frosting tinted blue WARNING butter cream frosting is slightly yellow which caused my skirt to be a bit green! Then I added blue sugar crystal sprinkles for the sparkle of Cinderella's dress. After inserting the doll her pelvis was still slightly exsposed (1/2 - 1 inch) but I was able to cover it with frosting. I lucked out and found a generic Cinderella doll at the 1 store so I put the generic dress on the nicer doll and wrapped her in plastic from the torso down. I stuck the candles to her hands with artists gum. After the cake was cut I changed Cinderella back into the dress she came with originally and handed her off to my eager princess. The guests were wowed! This is such a great idea and in all honesty it was very easy and Im an ammatuer cook.;-) UPDATE: Another great idea is to use Kelly dolls and insert them into cupcakes. I'm doing that this year and may post pics. You can see instructions on Barbie.com.
This is a very fun cake that I have made several times. I agree with other reviewers that this recipe needs to be "tweaked". I use the large Pampered Chef batter bowl, using 1 and a 1/2 box mixes. Barbie's legs should be wrapped tightly with plastic wrap. I use a naked barbie and pipe frosting on the body to create her bodice.
This is a great basic recipe with lots of easy variations that little girls love! I once had an Ariel (Little Mermaid) cake with blue "water" frosting and her "tail" piped in green frosting! It got rave reviews! I use the Pampered Chef large batter bowl and bake two separate cakes (325 degrees at 70 mins. each). Use a large knife to level the cakes. Cut off the top 2 inches of the second cake (freeze for later use). Stack the two cakes with frosing in between. I wrap the dolls legs in plastic wrap before placing her in the cake...The doll is then part of the birthday gift!
I made this for my daughters 5th Birthday and it turned out GREAT!!!!!!!! I bought the top part of the doll in the cake decoratng section at Walmart for 1.99 and I bought a stainless steel mixing bowl that was tall also from Walmart. I made 2 boxes of the deluxe moist cake mix-white cake and put it in the bowl(I put shortning in the bowl so the cake wouldn't stick). I placed the bowl inside a 9X13 baking pan and filled with boiling water(a water bath). I had to bake it for a while--about an hour and 20mins--but it was VERY MOIST!! I had some splitting while trying to frost but I put it together with frosting. Everyone at the party thought I made it and kept complamenting on how great & moist it tasted. Plus my daughter & her friends thought it looked soooo cool.
An awesome idea and a huge hit at my daughter's 3rd birthday party. I used homemade cake and frosting. You need to use some common sense about the bowl shape & size and adjust the cooking time accordingly. (I even had the power go out for 10 min. while mine was baking). I used a cake topper Barbie to avoid problems with the legs. There are toppers and bowls specifically for this cake at most craft stores you can use as well.
