This cake was made for a four-year-old who loves all things Barbie, especially the fairies. I tried to keep the cake as close to the actual movie character and ended up using an actual Barbie instead of the usual doll pick. Normally, I don't use Barbies because their legs are too long for the cake. But this time, I took the legs off and voila! Barbie fits!
Wings, pedals and letters are fondant. Flowers are royal icing. And you can't really tell from the picture but the whole thing is pretty much drenched in sparkles.
