Fondant Barbie Ruffle Cake. All Dolled Up Barbie Cupcakes

All Dolled Up Barbie Cake

My daughter, Madison, wanted a Barbie Cake so I made her a Barbie Cake. It was orginally 3 tiers, but the 2nd tier ended up being the same size as her dress. I didn't like the way it looked, so I took the middle tier out. When I made Barbie I didn't calculate her dress coming out a few inches. I think this is the smallest cake I've ever made for one of my kids and I felt guilty. Madison loved it and that's all that matters.

Barbie's dress is very girly. She is all dolled up with tons of ruffles. I have a new passion for making ruffles out of fondant. It's easy, looks great, and I love it.
This is an 8" round cake covered in black fondant. I cut out Barbie's silhouette using my exacto knife. The silver beads are Drugees, and I trimmed the cake with more ruffles.

I didn't want her cake to match the decorations simply because I didn't like the decorations. I pulled it all together by adding flowers in the colors from the barbie party supplies.

Madison helped me add all the flowers to the cake. It totally made her day :)

I haven't taken Tutu Fairy orders since March 1st. I'm going to catch up on the last 25+ orders and then take a 2 weeks vacation :) EEEKKK... so excited!!

Vacation... No I am not going anywhere tropical. By vacation I mean, a vacation from orders, emails, etsy conversations, facebook messages. I'm going to enjoy my family and relax.
