Barbie Doll Cake
May 10, 2006

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
