Hello! I have been asked to make a barbie cake. She wants a 12" round on the bottom and barbie sitting on top of that. She wants barbie's dress light pink and then said she'd leave the rest up to me on how to incorporate purple and yellow into the design. I was thinking of putting flowers on her dress either purple with yellow centers, or vice versa. What do you think I should do with the bottom 12" cake? Make it the same color as Barbie's dress so it flows together, or make it another color? This is my first one so I thought I'd get some ideas from everyone.
Wow! That's a lot of cake! Make sure you put the Barbie on a cake board and dowels in the 12" to support it.
I would do the 12" cake in white (if she's okay with that) with white borders and then put pink, yellow, and purple roses on it with very pale celery green leaves. A triple ruffle swag of the 3 colors on the sides of the 12" would look pretty, too.
Little purple flowers with yellow centers on the pink Barbie dress would look very pretty. I'd add a touch of white deco, too, like some little pearls or lace detail around the neckline, cuffs, and hem.
