For my baby girl's 5th birthday, she wanted a Hula Barbie cake. Tools needed: 10" cake pan, large mixing bowl, Wilton's white fondant, flower cookie cutter, sharp knife, cake mix, wax paper, wilton decorating tip # 233 & # 3, icing decorating bags, a barbie doll, plastic wrap, gel food coloring, small dowels, wilton's buttercream icing, rolling pin.

Step 1: Bake Cakes, Ice & Cover W/ Fondant

First I baked a 10" round (the base) box cake ( I think Duncan Hines Chocolate) and also baked a yellow box cake mix in a large mixing bowl for the "skirt"..iced both with buttercream, then rolled out fondant green & blue, green for skirt & blue for base.
<p>I really like the effect you achieved, getting the green icing to look like a hula skirt.</p><p>Have you made any cool cakes recently?</p>
<p>was this alot of work</p>
Very cheerful luau cake.<br /> I'm so glad you mentioned wrapping the doll's legs before inserting her in the cake...<br /> <br /> The first time I made one I didn't know to do that. The cake tasted like plastic doll !<br />
