I am new to this so learning - but have big ideas !!
I need to make a Barbie doll cake for my boyfriend on the weekend. So a dome cake skirt with a barbie doll inserted into the middle of the cake.
I want to make a layered vanilla and chocolate cake - can i use normal tins and stack them, then use a knife to shape it into a big skirt ?
Help and ideas much needed
Yes you sure can
However having done this kind on cake a few times - with the 1st time doing it the way you described above - I find it easier baking the top part of the skirt in a rounded bottom pan.
However baking time with this kind of pan is longer.
P/s - didn't know boys too, like to play with Barbies? *wink* ;p
