Barbie/Princess cake?

My daughter is turning 5 in Feb, and she wants a Disney Princess Party. Have any of you made a barbie cake? The kind, where you put the barbie *or in this case, a princess doll, in the top...and then the cake part is supposed to be the dress? I know Pampered Chef has this large mixing bowl, the one with the handle..and the lid...and you can bake it it. I was told that was good to use for this type of cake. Tell me your thoughts, if you've used this method before. Thanks!!

  • i think that using a bunt cake mold would work.

  • My mom used to own a bakery and made those cakes. Sho would use 2 8inch layers and a cupcake on top, stick the doll thru the cupcake and the cakes and taper up with lots of frosting

  • The Pampered Chef mixing bowl works better than the bundt because it holds the barbie tighter. My friend made her daughter's cake this way and it was gorgeous.

  • There is a special pan that makes the dress of the cake and then you stich the plastic doll body into the cake to complete the doll cake. I think Wilton has cake pans in the shape of barbie if you want some other options for Barbie cakes. You may want to look on their site for some ideas.
