I was doing a search for ideas of a Doll Cake and ran across this life size Barbie Cake. It is so pretty and well done. I just had to share.

Ok maybe that link will work.

I have changed the link twice I hope this one works.

That last picture looks like a murder, with the knife and all! It does not look at all like cake!

Holy Crap! That's amazing and beautiful! I can't believe it ways over 2000 lbs. Well...I can. But wow is that heavy. And how hard would be that be to transport!

That's one cool cake. But I don't believe the head, arms and torso are cake. It looks like they used a maniquin (sp) the way you use a doll pic when you do the small barbie cake. So probably only the bottom half is really cake. That what it looks like to me.

i'm in shock!! i understand that the head, bodice and arms are maniquins but the rest...unbelievable!! what talent!!

This is a maniquin from head to toe. The part that is cake is at the bottom. It looks like the feet are set in at least 4 or 5 teirs of cake and then fondant is draped from the waist down to make the flowing skirt. A very clever and beautiful cake I must say!

The accompanying article states that the "Life Size Barbie Doll Cake" weighs 2,645 lbs.... It doesn't seem reasonable that the portion at the bottom that you feel are tiered layers could weigh THAT much. (And the mannequin either torso or full body, wouldn't add thousands of lbs....)

The cake portion has to start much higher, probably at/just below the waist area (where the knife wielding lady in the last photo is poised to cut.)

This cake is a huge version of a (slim) wondermold cake with a "pick" doll for the torso.

Here's a link to the bust topped not quite life size bride cake:
(Where the major portion of the gowned body IS composed of many tiered layers.)

In the third picture, Lizie Borden with the knife is cutting into the train (or whatever that is) of the dress, so that must be cake, too.

Jan H, those links for the hand made wedding sculptures are amazing!

The other definately looks like a shop dummy, with some cake down the bottom. It is still beautifully finished.

Chocolate mud cake is a very dense, heavy cake. That must have been a structural nightmare. I can't even imagine the transporting they had to do!

And yep, I'd want a piece of that cake!!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Well you know what Barbie says -- "When you look this good, nobody cares if you're plastic!" icon_biggrin.gif (Or I guess frosting as the case may be!) icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif

I love it!! Oh Oh if it were only red velvet with raspberry fill!!!!

On another note~~Geez that's the part of me needs some cutting off too--those thunderous thunder thighs--but thankfully I don't weigh quite as much as Babs. Bless her overweight heart. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I'm sure you've seen Roland Winbeckler's life size cakes, he is phenomenal!

I remember flicking through Rolands book years ago. From memory there has been specialty stands made from wood that the cake goes into or sits on. You need to be a good carpenter too!

It is not one giant piece of cake that has been carved up.

Still very clever. icon_biggrin.gif

This cake, and the cakes on all the other links , are amazing. I wouldn't even know where to start if someone asked me for a life size cake of themself!
