Shiny red coloured 5 mm stripsโ€”3 strips
Yellow - orange 3mm stripsโ€” 1 strip
(The number of strips may vary as per different cake size.)

Step 1: Making the Layers of Cake โค๏ธ

Take the lavender coloured 10 mm paper strip and join it to the top of another lavender colored strip with glue.
Go on doing so and connect all Lavender coloured stripes.
Now quill this long strip using a quilling tool and make a huge coil.
Do the same with the white coloured stripes but the coil made out of those stripes should be smaller then the previous one.
Again repeat this with the pink stripes but the coil should be smaller than the white coil.
(make sure that all these coils are tight)
Now, the three layers of the cake are prepared.

Step 2: Making the Ribbons, Bow and Candle Parts ๐ŸŽ—๏ธ๐ŸŽ€๐Ÿ•ฏ๏ธ

Now, cut two - three 5mm shiny red coloured strip from between as shown in picture.
These will be the ribbons for our Barbie's Birthday Cake's layers.
Also use these stripes to prepare a bow for decoration and making the candle as shown in photo.
Take ยผ part of a yellow - orange strip and coil it.(loose coil)
Then, shape this coil in a tear drop shape.
This will be the flame of our candle.

Now, glue the ribbons in the middle of the each cake layers.
Now, arrange the tiny coils to make the body of the candle with glue and fix the tear drop shape on its' top with glue.
Now, all the things are ready... It's assembly time!
