This weekend we were invited to a birthday party. It was a nice picnic/ playground party and everyone brought something to eat. I prepared this cake for the birthday girl. I have always wanted to try and bake a Pink Princess Barbie Cake and finally I did!
It was easier than I thought but still took 5 hours to decorate the cake.
First I baked the chocolate cake 6 days earlier. (for the recipe: chocolate cake recipe ) I multiplied the ingredients by 4!!
My cake pan has 18 cm-7 inches. In the end I had a 6 level cake, but I used 5 of them.
After they were baked I cut the tops to make a perfect flat layer.
Take the cakes out of the freezer at least 10 hours before you decorate.
Then I prepared my chocolate frosting. (for the recipe: chocolate frosting recipe )multiplied it by 2!
Covered the legs with plastic wrap.
And do not forget to hold barbie’s hair up otherwise it gets dirty!
Then I cut holes in the middle of the 5 cakes and covered the tops with frosting.
After I put all 5 layers I cut the first 2 top layers to give it a skirt shape. I had so much leftover cake so I made leftover hedgehog cake with my son!
It was ready to go. The last thing I did to secure the cake during transportation.
I put non-slip rug pad under the cake plate and placed it on the inside of a plastic box cover.
