I made this cake for my flatmate. I made moist chocolate cake and italian meringue for the icing. Let the cake cool and after icing the cake, I rebake it for another 5 - 10 minutes for the meringue to set. I put the barbie doll on the iced cake and decorate some royal icing to cover the legs of the doll.

We are a family run Catering & Cake business, and we were asked to create a girl's Barbie doll cake for a 5 year olds birthday. This was our first attempt, and I think it came out pretty well.
We used a 7 inch round cake tin and a small pudding bowl; this was so that the Barbie dress didn’t look too fat. The cake was decorated using white and pink sugar paste.

You are going to need a cake baked in a bowl shape. I used a stainless steel bowl you buy at local stores. For the bottom i used a 12 x 15 pan but I have used a smaller base before. I used whipped icing and just added icing sugar to it to make it more firm, then colored it with food coloring. Insert the doll wrapped in saran wrap into cake before icing then fill in around it. To get the sides smooth I used a piece of computer paper and started at the bottom and pulled it to the top to make the icing nice and smooth. Filled in around the doll with icing and iced the bottom the same color. I used the shell tip to create the edging. Make sure to put dowel under the tier stands to prevent it from sinking. Hope this helps someone. Have fun :)

I made this teddy bear cake. I baked 2 round pans for the head and body. I used cream cheese for the whole cake. Then I used coconut for the fur. I used color dye to change the coconut to brown. I used fondant for the ears, bow, nose and paws.

This Princess Cake was for a 2 year old. I use the Moist Chocolate Cake for 11" Round from this site and poured it into a 7" bowl and 8" Round. Once baked I torted, filled and trimmed to desired shape. Covered and decorated with homemade rolled fondant. I personally thought the cake didn't need the stars but the mother had requested stars and since it was a 2 year old I figured - why not?

This Portal of Power cake idea was submitted by Jem Fry of England, UK.
Decorating tips by Jem:
The cake was a white-iced sponge cake bought from a shop. The birthday boy is a big fan of the Skylanders video game, so the cake is designed on the "Portal of Power" from the game.
The grey icing was blended white and black rolled thin and wrapped around the cake. Another layer if grey icing was added about an inch from the cake's base and slightly folded over on top to form the central circle.
Eight strips of grey were placed vertically at equal distances around the base of the cake, rising up the walls and slightly extending into the central white circle.
The stone effect was created by crinkling up some grease proof paper and pressing it into the icing. The brick effect was made by cutting into the icing with a sharp knife.
The hieroglyphics were carved out with a sharp knife and then filled with white icing and pressed into shape.
Some paint-on shimmer icing was brushed onto the top to make the swirls and imitate the game's lighting effects.
To finish off a thin strip of bright green ribbon was wrapped around the base and one of the Skylanders figures placed on the Portal of Power.
