My daughter's 4th birthday was yesterday and recently become obsessed with Cinderella. I asked her what cake she wanted. She said, "cinderella cake"...so I googled it and majority of the finds were the barbie doll dress cake...
Most of the had you buy the special kit for it from Wilton's. But I didn't have time!
Luckily, I had dome-shaped pans to use for the dress. Anyways, here's what you need:
-1 box of cake mix, your favorite flavor
-1 can of ready-made icing, preferably white.
-a dome-shaped pan...even a glass pyrex bowl would work too!
-1 doll or barbie. My recommendations is going to the .99 cent store and getting a cheap doll since it's going to get sticky!
-Cake frosting tips & plastic baggie.
-Can of Whip cream
Grease pans that you will be using.
Make cake mix and put in pans. If there are "do not fill above line" line, then obey that rule and put reminder of cake mix in a smaller dome pan.
Place in preheated oven, 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Take out of oven and let cool.
Get your barbie and strip her down...pardon the nudity ;)
Once cakes are cool, remove from pans and make sure it looks good stalked on top of one another.
Get 3/4 of the can of icing and put it in a bowl. Get the food coloring and try to get the right shade. I have the gel kind of food coloring and there was blue...but it came to 4 drops of blue and 1 drop of red to get the right shade for the Cinderella dress. But I know online or on the boxes, it can tell you how to get sky blue and stuff. So just follow directions.
Get out your knife and start frosting the cake!
I put a layer of frosting in between the 2 cakes then just started going nuts and putting it everywhere.
Also, where the 2 cakes are put together, there was a empty crevice that I filled in with whip cream from the can, then I just carefully covered it with the blue icing.
Take off doll's legs, so you just have the barbie body and stick her in the cake to her waist. The reason? the legs are too long for most pans, instead of keep piling on more cake, just take the legs off! Plus, the doll was less than a dollar...who cares!
Step 7: Start frosting the bodice of the doll.
Prepare the frosting tip and baggie and Place the 1/4 white frosting in it. I used a thin, circle tip and then drew her sleeves and outlined the white puffs on the dress...and also drew the 4 in front.
Fill in the dress puff with whip cream and also put whip cream aroung the bottom of the dress.
Serve immediately or place in fridge. If placing in fridge, wait to do the whip cream very last, like right before you serve it. It goes weird in there...
And there you go! YUMMY. My daughter loved it and it was kind of fun doing it too! It wasn't hard at all. Anyone can do it!
