How To Make an (Instant) Barbie Cake

On Ameera's birthday, I had planned to make her Barbie-themed cake. The thing about living in Ireland is, I don't have that much choice to buy the tools or any other fancy baking stuff that you can easily find back home in Malaysia. Even if there I find a few, they normally turn out to be just so expensive and not worth it because I won't be using it that often. In this case, I didn't have those a big round baking pan to use as mould for Barbie's skirt.

Fortunately nowadays, there are lots of tips and new ideas on the internet.  I came across Betty Crocker's site which gives you different ideas for making kids' birthday cakes more interesting, from scratch without having to use special tools or moulds.

For example for my daughter's Barbie cake...

Si Barbie yang Katek

Of course, as a start, you need a Barbie doll Next, I'm sure you guys have a glass bowl (an oven-proof because we'll be baking in it) for the top part and a normal baking pan for the bottom. Maybe you'll need more than 1 baking pan. A different size for the bottom if you want to make the skirt longer. Unfortunately, I was too lazy so I just used one and that's why I have to break the Barbie princess' legs. Ahaks! My daughter screamed when she saw it. Sacrificial Barbie. Hehehe...


Eh OK, maybe you could just watch this for yourself...


This is the inside of what my cake looks like. I made a blueberry muffin cake for the top and chocolate cake for the bottom. Don't think they go to well but like I said, I was running out of ideas and was just plain lazy!


There are so many other options and ideas from HowdiniGuru including the Dinosaur cake for Husayn's birthday last month. You'll be surprised yourself and it's very easy.  Happy baking.

To the Barbie lovers out there: Ameera's old Barbie doll went through re-constructive surgery and is now her normal cheerful self again, two legs and all!
