    This was on the Use and Care cards. Here you go!!

    Doll Cake

    2 packages (18.25 ounces each) yellow cake mix (plus ingredients to make cake)


    1 package (2 pounds) powdered sugar (about 7 cups), divided
    1 cup butter or margarine, softened
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    1 tablespoon clear vanilla extract
    6-7 tablespoons milk, divided
    Food coloring (optional)


    7-inch doll pick cake decoration or 11-inch fashion doll
    Ribbon, lace, tulle and straight pins

    1. For cake, preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour Classic Batter Bowl. Prepare 1 cake mix according to package directions. Pour into batter bowl. Bake 1 hour, 10 minutes to 1 hour, 15 minutes or until Cake Tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove to Stackable Cooling Rack. Cool 15 minutes. Run knife around outside of cake and gently turn out onto cooling rack, large end down. Repeat with remaining cake mix to make a second cake. Cool 3 hours.

    2. For frosting, combine half of the powdered sugar with butter, shortening, vanilla and 3 tablespoons of the milk in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer until smooth. Add remaining powdered sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, adding more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, as needed for good spreading consistency. Tint some of the frosting with food coloring, if desired.

    3. To assemble cake, using Serrated Bread Knife, trim off rounded bottoms of cakes to level. Slice off 2 inches from bottom (large end) of one cake and arrange on serving platter to serve as bottom of doll's skirt. (Wrap and freeze unused top portion of first cake for later use.)

    4. Frost sides and top of cake on platter using Small Spreader; top with second cake. Frost second cake. Wrap top of doll with ribbon or lace; secure in back with pins. Insert doll into cake. To serve, remove doll and cut cake into slices with serrated bread knife.

    One tip (that I've shared before)...

    Don't put Barbi in the cake before baking...her hair really doesn't like it! (no...I've never done it, but yes I know someone who has)

    You need a separate cake base because the barbie is too tall for the batter bowl. I just made a sheet cake.

    Or two batter bowl cakes, cut one in half and use the bottom half. (Freeze the top half for munchies later)

    Yes, the directions actually do call for you to bake two batter bowl cakes for the Barbie cake

    Or, you can always use a pick. It's a doll from the waist up, but something like a plastic toothpick from the waist down. That's what I plan to use when I make a bride cake for an upcoming shower.
