I’m a Barbie girl in a Birthday world!!

This cake has been on my mind since my friend Heather asked if I could make Makenzies 2nd Birthday cake. Of course I was so excited to make it and even more thrilled when Heather said the theme was Vintage Barbie. UM YES! I love doing cute themed cakes that are different from anything I’ve ever done.

It was a 3 tiered cake. 12 inch, 10 inch, 8 inch. Top cake was red velvet with cream cheese frosting, the center cake was chocolate with chocolate frosting, and the bottom cake was yellow with vanilla frosting!

I had to get a picture by the cake 😉

Heres what I started with! A blank canvas!

Here is the sketch I came up with for the cake! Heather had pinned a few cakes she liked to Makenzie’s 2nd Birthday Board, so I pulled ideas from all of them to come up with this!

First of all… let me just say… I use to HAND ROLL EACH AND EVERY PEARL! Can you even believe that?! What was I thinking?! I found this pearl mold by Wilton at Michaels for like $8.00 so I bought it! SO EASY! I love this thing already and know its gonna get a lot of use.

I cut out so many circles for the bottom cake just in case. Always need extra!

For the bows, I made them a little different then I typically would but that’s because I wanted them to look extra dainty and girly! I ended up using only 1 Barbie head, I was going to do 5 going around the middle cake but decided it was too much! Those went unused.

I especially loved the center tier! At first I only did 1 strand of pearls but added a second strand shortly after this photo!

Loved the cake table! It all looked so cute. Everything Heather bought and made looked awesome! (I made the Happy Birthday Banner and will have a blog post on that up shortly!)

Then the cake had to be cut! As sad as that was for me 😉
