For my daughter Rydhi’s first birthday, last year, we bought a cake from a bakery. Thank Lord! this year things have changed and now I’m having a big craze of cake baking. So it was certain that I would bake a cake for her. Other birthday theme cakes I made for her are Mickey mouse clubhouse theme cake and Tinker Bell theme cake. Some other decorated cakes here includes Golden rays twilight theme cake and a decorated vanilla sponge cake.
My husband, Anish kept on asking me about the type of cake for her second birthday. My thoughts flew like a bird’s eye view as there are different types of cakes to choose from. It was not an easy job to make a surprise for her. When I looked at her, she was just carrying her Barbie doll gifted by her uncle, Rohith and making the doll to sleep by singing “Vavooo…..Vavooo”. Ohh!!! Clicked an idea!!! Why can’t I make a Barbie doll cake for her? I got really excited…. and I discussed it with Anish. He smiled and said, “Wow Good idea dear!”. Thanks to Betty Crocker, for the ideas of Barbie doll cake .
Then my attention went on to forming different layers of cakes with pretty different flavors and types. Then I listed the most favorable types of cakes. The base, must be strong enough to hold the layers of cakes placed above. So I used traditional vanilla cake for the base layer. For the next layer, I used the Black Magic cake, which is a dark cake and deliciously chocolaty. And I used soft black forest cake for the subsequent layer with less diameter compared to the black magic. A red velvet cake is used at the top layer, which is a dome shaped one where the skirt of the doll starts. I used whipping cream frosting in between the layers and butter cream frosting for Barbie’s skirt decorations.
