Barbie Doll Cake

Late last year, I wrote a post about my trip to Bruges & Brussels, and mentioned how I found a shop window display of Barbie doll cakes. I reminisced about the cake my mama made for my 9th birthday, which was a Barbie ice cream cake, complete with sugared violets to decorate her dress. I have just acquired a picture of this cake (thank you Sue!) so that you can see for yourself what a beauty she was.

Isn't she lovely?

I can't wait to make one, if I ever have a daughter!

    1. I think the Barbie doll cake must have been in that Australian Womens Weekly cake book - you know with the swimming pool cake, the train cake, the castle cake etc etc. I think I remember a swimming pool cake for someone's birthday...
      And yes, Mum was pretty good at the cake making! x
