We just had a "Young Women in Excellence" this last week. I said "Wouldn't it be cute to do those "Barbie" cakes in the YW value colors???" "Sure, I can do them, No problem!" (I had never made a "Barbie" cake, in fact, I don't know how many years it has been since I even opened up a cake box...)
OK, the decorating was pretty easy... but it took me 4 times x 2 cakes mixes each, to finally give up with the Wilton cake mold. My cakes would just not cook in the middle, even with that rod that you put in. So, I ended up making 8 three layer cakes and then cutting them each into a skirt shape. That's 24 caked mixes there plus the first 8 cake mixes = 32 cake mixes! So 32 cake mixes with 3 eggs each= 96 eggs! 1/3 cup oil each cake mix= 10 cups of oil!
It was actually fun after the decorating started and I can now say that "YES, I can make a "Barbie" cake, No problem!"
