I have been asked to make a ballerina cake, not your typical with the shoes. I made a couple of barbie cakes for this little girl in the past so I think that is what the mom is envisioning.

Any thoughts? Suggestions? Help!

Wow. This brings up lots of ideas well beyond the realm of what I can do. If you are good with fondant, gumpast, and sculpting, what about a studio with the wood flooring and a bar and a ballerina with a leg up on the bar and another ballerina twirling? Or some kind of Swan Lake theme with a ballerina dancing around a swan?

I saw some of your beautiful Barbie cakes in your photos! icon_biggrin.gif What if you made a Barbie cake kind of like that with the wondermold. But instead of making a long dress, you made a tutu from fondant and made the legs from fondant along the wondermold in a ballerina position ( I don't know them but I've heard of 1st position, 5th position etc.). Or maybe you could make a large round cake with the 6 in. round on top to have the depth to stick the doll in and use the 6 in. to make the tutu all frilly on, and then make it so she is like doing the splits with the fondant legs extended out on the bottom cake? I wish I could do drawings on here; sorry-I'm too mokey pawed w/ the computer icon_razz.gif

Thank you both for your suggestions, great ideas! I will see what happens tomorrow when I start in on the project.
I am very new to cake baking and decorating so talent is limited indeed. Should be fun though! icon_smile.gif

I know you'll do something great. I just looked at your photos again right now and that seems like some natural talent if your new! The cakes were fantastic! icon_biggrin.gif Be sure and post the pix when you're done... I can't wait to see thumbs_up.gif

Thanks, well pictures are posted. The cake of course did not meet my vision. Such as life! It tastes good and she is 3 and I learned from this insane mess... icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gifImage
