I really hope someone can help me out. I've been asked to do a Barbie cake for a client... easy enough... but the client wants me to incorporate smarties (the Canadian kind - similar to M&M's on the skirt). My fear is that just throwing some smarties on there will make it look like a 5 year old did it. Has anyone used any candy on the skirt of a barbie dress? Have you seen/favourited a photo??? Please help! I'm really lost on how to incorporate these little chocolate candies!
thanks!

If they come in mini- like mini m&m's, they might look okay as a bottom border on the skirt.

Maybe you could use a star tip to make some stars or dots on the dress and use the smarties as an accent on top of the starts, if that makes sense?

Thanks. I think I might have a few ideas. This is going to be the biggest challenge. Who would have thought?

Again, if they are small enough, make flowers and use them as the centers.

Maybe you can make a design out of them, like paisley, swirls, or wavy lines on the skirt.

I have actually seen M&M used on cakes a lot. I know with M&Ms now they have 30 different colors to choose from. Here is something I found that I have seen done similarly:

There are so many things you can do... it will be a bit of work for you though. icon_biggrin.gif Good luck!
