I have done a few Barbie Doll cakes, but I have a customer who wants me to make a barbie doll cake for her daughters sweet 16th birthday for 100 people.  I was thinking of doing a 12" a 10" and the barbie doll cake, but not sure if those sizes would feed 100, can anyone tell me if these sizes will work or do I need to go bigger?  Thanks.

AJeez. Can't you just do a tiered cake with barbie as the top tier?

The Wilton cake serving chart says a 12 inch and 10 inch cake will serve 68. 


You'll have to use My Size Barbie to make a cake big enough to feed all those kids! Remember that thing? HAHA! 


Back to serious now...if those serve 68 and you add the Barbie on top, it won't add that many more servings because she's not a full cake. she's carved. You could probably make the 12 inch and 10 inch 3 layers to feed more people...just a thought.

AI'm getting 94 servings, wedding size, from the wilton chart. What are you using for the Barbie cake? Wilton's wonder mold pan holds a full cake mix, which should yield at least 24 servings.

It really depends on your budget and her desires.  Does she want one huge (Lifesize) Barbie like Tori Spelling did?  Or does she want a regular size Barbie princess cake incorporated into a larger cake?

Did the client have her own idea?

My doll cakes are always the same...a 6/7/8.   I had to do one that needed more servings, so I put it on a square.  Square  (or round) can be a single or double...depending on the amount of servings needed.

A[ATTACHMENT=1355][IMG ALT=""][/IMG][/ATTACHMENT]I agree with the above poster to put a typical Barbie cake on top of a larger one. Here's the one we do often. I start with a 5"/6"/7" rounds for the skirt since I don't want her to look too hippy. You can make the bottom tier as big as you need.

PLEASE HELP ASAP, ok, so I have another dilemma on this cake doll, mom, gave me a pic of the dress her daughter will be wearing a week before event and it's a beautiful dress a light pink dress with white appliques of roses and leaves on the top cascading to almost the waist. there are more appliques at the bottom of the dress as well as on the back from the waist all the way to the bottom. problem is not sure how to do this I have some molds of flowers but way too big for the top of the dress I tried sizing them down but still too big, I thought maybe I could paint the flowers and leaves free hand but not sure if that will work well, I really want it too look elegant and professional, any help would be greatly appreciated
