My daughters birthday was in January. I decided I wanted to make her a Princess Cake. I saw the picture of a princess cake on the Family Fun website. Unfortunately, there were no real clear directions on how to make the cake. So after throwing away about 6 cakes I finally found the best way to make this cake.
I made two nine inch rounds made of chocolate. Then I made a white cake and put it in a smaller size dome cake. I assembled them together with a pudding/cream cheeses recipe I made up. I stuck Barbie down in the center and put pieces of a failed cake all around her to give her stability. Voila, there is the first picture. Then after trying my hand with the pastry bag I fashioned a dress out of 'stars'. I saw this type of "doll dress" on Martha Stewart's website. (Again, there was no real directions, at least that I had any kind of success with).
It was a challenge that I enjoyed. If anyone attempts this I would love to hear about your adventures.
1 box of chocolate pudding
1 cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 oz. cream cheese
2/3 cup brown sugar
Cream the cheese and sugar together. Blend well and add the vanilla and milk. Finally add the pudding mix. Chill until set.
