For Barbie’s 50th birthday, a Princess Sarah cake
I baked the “skirt” part of the cake in a Pampered Chef Pyrex batter bowl (1 box confetti cake mix). But since it didn’t rise as much as I expected (maybe because of our 5000′ altitude, even though I followed the high altitude directions), I had to raise it a bit by putting a 9-inch layer underneath (to make the proportions right for the barbie doll “pick” (no legs) that I got at Hobby Lobby).
First I frosted the whole cake in white decorator’s frosting, to cover the cake. Next I tinted some icing pink and frosted the body of the doll. I used store bought decorators icing in bright pink to place little flowers along the top and at the waist of her bodice.
Then I used my Pampered Chef Easy Accent Decorator to place flowers in homemade pink decorators icing all over the skirt, except the front, where I left it plain white to write Sarah. I also used the store bought pink icing to do little accent flowers along the bottom under Sarah.
