A fun and easy project especially for creative people of all ages, this Locks of Gold Barbie cake pan is definitely a good birthday gift for girls or an enjoyable way for girls to relive the many cherished childhood memories in the process! With just a few tips and pointers, you can be on your way to creating one of the most popular and beautiful cakes of your party.
You'll need the following materials: plain Bakelite cake pan, Barbie dress and shoes, brown sugar, food coloring, spray bottle for baking soda and a toothpick for each color of the icing, a fork and mixers, non-stick spray, a non-toxic matting mix, a long piece of wooden skewers and a decorating bag or container in which you will want to put the frosting. Once you have gathered these items, follow the detailed step-by-step instructions provided by the manufacturer. For example, you'll need to get the Bakelite cake pan out of its packaging. Lay the cake pan on a flat surface that is free from heat or decorations so as to create a smooth surface upon which you will prepare the filling. Start at the bottom of the cake and fill in any gaps by inserting the toothpick.
Next, use the food coloring in mixing until it has reached its desired intensity. This coloration will help determine the tone of the frosting that you will apply to your Barbie cake. Then, using the fork, start working the frosting around the entire perimeter of the cake. Remember not to spread it too thin or else you will run the risk of it oozing out and ruining the otherwise beautiful design you have spent time on. It can also ruin the perfectly fine and smooth texture of the frosting.
Some baker's tip their hats on to the professionals when it comes to making Barbie cake mixes. While this may be true, there are no quick shortcuts to producing cakes that are perfect for your little girl's childhood fantasy. The right ingredients, a skillful mixing method and just the right tools are all that it takes when baking Barbie cake mixes. With the right recipe, a few measuring spoons and a few bakeware pieces, you can create cakes that rival those that are made for a grown woman.
To produce two cakes that are identical to the original Barbie cake, start with about one cup of white frosting. Next, you'll want to add about three to four eggs in varying sizes depending on how many layers you are planning to make. Use a non-stick spray to grease the bottoms of both cakes.
Next, you'll want to line up each of the two cake pans with the frosting that you have prepared. Gently slide in the center of the two molds and tap them gently until they are smooth and even. Then, use a cooking spray to cover the bottoms of the cakes. Place a dollop of cream cheese on the bottom of one of the layers and bake for approximately ten to fifteen minutes. After that, remove the cake from the oven and let cool on a wire cooling rack.
Once you have completed making the second Barbie cake, it is time to add the second coat of frosting. Using a spatula, apply the second coat of frosting to the entire cake. Let dry for about twenty minutes before you remove the last layer of frosting and serve your little girl with her birthday cake.
This was a very simple Barbie cake idea borrowed from the original. I used a pre-made frosting recipe found online. The result was a beautiful cake with minor adjustments to make it a little different than what you would find at your local baker's shop. The frosting was a lot easier to work with than I had anticipated and ended up creating several more Barbie cakes as a result.
