White cake with ruffled ombre buttercream finish. Barbie's top is fondant with fondant roses as accents on the bodice and down the front of her dress.
I used the Wilton doll cake pan but it really isn't tall enough for Barbie (who has really long legs) so I added another layer (10") underneath and carved it to fit. My husband carved a tunnel down the middle to fit her in and put her down in the cake (I am not really allowed around sharp objects). The wings were purchased at Hobby Lobby and hot glued to her back.
