Macy had a Perfectly Pink Pool Party for her 7th birthday party. This was her second birthday cake for her 7th birthday, the first was for her actual birthday and was a Rose Petal Barbie cake, see it here. To make this cake I had to basically design a dress first! She wasnt elaborate but with the texture changes and flowers it turned out to be a very pretty cake. Her oversized flower corsage on the bodice was very modern, I’d wear a dress that had a corsage like this! This being my 2nd Barbie cake made with the Wilton Doll mold, I became more comfortable with dressing the doll pick bodice. I used the Wilton doll pick with a real Barbie head and tucked the fondant all the way under the waist to elminate the need to conceal the meeting point of waist and cake. The ruffled trim around her waist is a full circle at the top of the dress mold and the doll pick is placed on top. I love when I can achieve a tailored finish like this! Macy requested the birthday package to be in her hands with a candle but I didnt atempt that, I’m sure it can be done but the Wilton doll pick has very flimsy arms and it cant just balance. So a larger package with all 7 candles sitting on the ground worked out great. What didnt turn out great was my idea to make a ruffled underskirt at the bottom out of regular icing. It was too soft to work with in the transportation of the cake since she sat on a cake board just the size of the ball gown. A larger cake board or a stiffer medium will be my suggestion to anyone that would like to do this cake.
