Doll Cakes

I've had my share of old school doll cakes when growing up. My mom and aunts were all pretty talented when it came to cake decorating. My siblings, cousins and I all grew up with some pretty fancy birthday cakes. The doll cakes were obviously very popular in the 80's and 90's. Check these beauties out!

So when asked to make a doll cake of my own, I was absolutely ready... to make it completely different! My guidelines were to make it pink, sparkling, and girly. No problemo!

Instead of the usual ball gown cake, I thought I'd dress Barbie in a more slim, flowy dress. Since there are only about 3 servings in her actual dress, I had her on top of a round cake that was also blinged up. 

The bottom cake is a pink ombre cake, made with different shades of pink cake!
