Barbie or Princess Belle Cake


Normally when I do a Barbie cake, it is with a pick that is only the upper body and head.  For this cake my friend brought the entire doll in to have a cake made from it.  Since this was much bigger than the normal Barbie Cake I had to add layers to the bottom to make it tall enough.  I purchased a doll stand and hot glued the stand to the cake board.  Once that was secure I wrapped the legs with plastic wrap, then stood the doll up to measure how tall the skirt had to be.  I added a couple of layers of cake at the bottom then the normal cone shaped cake.  The legs of the doll fit inside the stand.  I iced the cake with buttercream they put a fondant skirt on top to make the bottom of the dress. With the left over strips of fondant I fashioned the top then put buttercream stars and confetti where the shirt and skirt come together and also along the bottom.  The doll is Bell from Beauty and the Beast and once the doll was cleaned up and dressed after the cake was cut the little girl was able to keep a little piece of her cake that will last for years to come.
