This week I've shared some Tractor Cakes and some Cozy Cones with your from Miss M's birthday this year. I couldn't let the idea of a Barbie cake go, so this is what I sent to day care for her to share with her class.
You can see the Pinspiration for this one here. I'm not that great at cake pops so like most things, I changed it. . .
I purchased some cute little cake cases from Robins Kitchen and baked our good old favourite vanilla sponge, iced with vanilla icing & had a helping hand to decorate with *lots* of sprinkles
Then I found a free printable colouring page, edited it slightly, and attached the 'skirt' with a bamboo skewer. The rest of the Barbies were helpfully coloured in by Miss M & I cheated & sent them unassembled to daycare. Probably a good thing, as it turns out Miss M shares her birthday and there was *lots* of cake that day.
I think a longer skirt would have looked nicer, but I'm not sure if the skewer would then have been strong enough to hold it up. Perhaps next year I'll get to throw her a Barbie party. . . or when she turns 21, either way :-)
