I would not recommend it for a barbie cake... Rolled buttercream is greasier than fondant and wants to slip. It takes just as much practice to work with it as it does when one starts using fondant. It does taste good; however. One can always combine 50/50 fondant and rolled buttercream as an alternative to straight fondant.
