Barbie Cake

my first attempt for doll cake. not easy. i've designed a princess ball gown but i can't make a perfect gown. i can't roll a big enough circle fondant for the gown pattern and the fondant is too soft to handle. after several times of trying, i gave up and start a new gown design, patch work gown. i made her gown strip by strip then cover the back of the gown with a piece of square fondant.

actually square fondant is not right to make a gown, i can't fit the waist, there's too much fondant excess so i had to turn it into some kind of big bow. finish the touch by using small white fondant flowers and silver pearls.
look very find indeed, but if you can put off her gown, you will see her messy "underwear", haha...

these are the cupcakes with barbie card toppers and fondant name tag. cupcakes are vanilla buttercake and barbie gown is chocolate mud cake.
