How to make and decorate a Barbie doll / Princess cake. This is a great DIY cake decorating project that can be easily made at home in a few hours. I used basic cake decorating tools to make this classic Barbie doll cake.
Cake decorating instructor Liz Larson demonstrates a Princess/Barbie cake tutorial.. My website http//: Some of the tools I used in the video- Mixer Quick Icer Icing Bag Icing Smoother Spatula: http Decorating Tips
I put together a Amazon store with some decorating supplies to help you get started.
Royal Icing- 3 eggs whites room temperature 1 pound powdered sugar (confectioners) 1 teaspoon cream of tartar Combine ingredients, beat at high speed 7-10 minutes. It dries quickly-keep covered.
DECORATING BUTTERCREAM- 2 CUP SHORTENING (SWEETEX) 1 CUP MILK (CANNED MILK IS GOOD) 2 TSP VANILLA 1 TSP. ALMOND EXTRACT ½ TSP.BUTTER FLAVORING 3 LB. POWDERED SUGAR 2 tsp. salt
Mix together and beat 10 minutes until light and fluffy it will keep in refrigerator for about 2 wks. It's enough to ice and decorate an 8 or 9 inch double layer cake. You can cut the recipe in half if you don't need that much. In this video I am using Pastry Pride Whip Topping. It can be found at most restaurant supply stores and Cake decorating supply stores.

Better Cream is also a good option. Liz Larson, jacobson68, the art of frosting, theartoffrosting.blogspot.com
