key01-yaaBarbie Cake Progress



I know you all have been waiting to see how this Barbie Cake is made!
A couple things you will need here:
1)Sponge cake
2)Real Butter Cream (see below)
4)Royal Icying

Real Butter Cream Recipe:
Salted Butter 1 cup (room tempeture)
Vanilla Extract 1 tsp
Icing sugar 4 cups
Warm water 2 tsp

-Cream butter
-Add vanilla
-Slowly add sugar, a cup at a time, continue beating medium speed on the mixer, scrap and mix
-Add water and beat untill fluffy
-The butter cream can be store in a airtight contianer in the freezer up to 2 months; in refrigerator up to 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.

Before you start making your cake, I encourge you to sketch the dress.
Just like a rough draft when you write your essay.
Because you don't want to run out of idea while the icying in your hand are drying.

First you will need a few different shapes of sponge cake in order to build the dress
I did a tall cupcake, a retangler cake and a 6" round cake

Next, when your cake is cool, build your cake into a dress
You may need a lot of buttercream to help as glue
When you are done, smooth the surface and set aside

Roll out your fondant.
Remember always dust icying sugar on the surface to prevent it from sticking
Cut out a couple panels to cover up the dress, trimp the extra.
Always nice to have some fondant tools around for a nice clean cut.

Lastly, insert the doll body and pipe her a nice top and pattern on the dress
When you are mixing foodcoloring into your white Royal Icying, you want to add a little extra icying sugar to create a nice solid texture.
This is the funest part to me! You can dress up your own barbie doll with your imgination

I hope you like this walk-through. Please feel free to ask any question ^^
