Like everyone else, I got this idea from Martha Stewart...To be honest It's not all cake, I couldn't figure out how to bake the cake using the pans I had-so I used rice krispies! cut the hole for the barbie and covered it with white almond bark. it is set on a sheet cake that I decorated to look like the barbie poster in my daughters room.
Baby Shower Cake
this is one of the first cakes I made after taking a cake decorating class. I thought it was a mess, but I'm still proud of it. The people at work had no luck finding a african-american baby cake, so I volunteered. The baby was purchased for 88cents and the blanket is made of candy clay. The sides are basketweave pretzels dipped in almond bark.
Large And Small Princess Cakes
please don't rip me to shreds! I know they are sloppy, but it was before I discovered wilton class buttercream. yes, this was made with canned icing and liquid egg dying food color. The year before this my daughter had the large barbie cake and this year decided she wanted each girl to have their own. For the boys we made clowns.
