Here is the pan that I baked the cake in. I was surprised how even it cooked given the shape.
And here I have added another piece of fondant for the outer layer of the dress. Just need to clean it and trim it up.
This is where I ran into a problem. I have learned through making cakes to allow time for trial and error! At first I though I could leave her legs on and stick her down in the cake...well she ended up being too tall so I decided to break off her legs. I thought they would easily pop back on like they did on my barbies when I was a kid but I was wrong. Apparently, Punz is a much better quality and she didn't like being torn apart. The doll was also part of Emma's present so I hate that I broke her. Sometimes I have to take extreme measures to make a cake look good!
Do you like how I gave Punz a bathing suit?? Gotta keep the blog family friendly :)
And here she is in her new attire. I added a little "bling" (not edible) and added her bodice. I always use clear vanilla as a glue to stick everything on my cakes. You can do this process with any barbie and you can also buy generic dolls specifically made for this type of cake that come with no legs.
Gotta run cause my lil guy is hungry! Have a great day.
