Several years ago; like 25 or more. I took cake decorating classes. I did enjoy the classes very much. Even though I was slow with decorating my cakes they always turned out pretty or cute. Anyway I decided to make a Barbie Doll cake for my sister who was married but we always enjoyed being silly. The cake turned out very nice with the doll in her fancy dress. You can't have a birthday cake with out candles so we decided to put the candles around the bottom of the dress. Well once they were lit it took some maneuvering around the cake to blow them all out. By the time the candles were out the doll's hair had caught on fire and her arms were melted. The moral of this story is. No candles on a doll cake. We laugh about to this day when the subject comes up. I believe that was the last doll cake I ever made.

I remember making one of those same cakes for my niece. I had made the dress in a dark teal with hot pink trim. My niece loved it and to this day, it has remained one of my favorite cakes I ever did. Like you, I made them slow, but was always proud of the results.

How funny! Glad no one was harmed with the "Burn-o-Matic" Barbie!

Many many yrs. ago I made several doll cakes, our older son commented that boys did not get pretty cakes. His birthday is in Dec. so I made one with a white dress, cotton and gold glitter for a hat, red licorice draped like garland, and green leaves. I put a candle in 1 hand and wrapped very small boxes(matchbox, ring box etc.) inHoliday paper and put around the serving plate. I said it was Miss Merry Christmas and she wanted to wish him a Happy Merry Birthday. All he said was, "aw mom" but I could tell by the look on his face that he was very pleased. He was at the age too young to be upset and too old to tell his friends. I did make a "normal" cake several days later for his party. This happened about 35 yrs. ago

I made this kind of cakes for each of my daughters when they were young, I have a picture of my daughter Sherry trying to pick it up thinking it was a Barbie doll.

Very funny and I'm sure your sister appreciated your effort. It's great to have silly memories to laugh about

This story is excellent, it reminds me of something that my sister and I would do. The only problem is is that we would end up melting the whole doll accidentally or setting something else on fire in the process! Thanks for putting a smile on my face! [=

My daughter loved Barbie cakes and still has all the decorations from past cakes. that is really funny that the doll melted...probably not at the time, though! Thanks for sharing.

Hope you got pictures of the cake before you lit the candles.

doll cakes were my first ones out of cake decorating class. Fond memories, but I never set her on fire.

GOOD TIP- CANDLES & DOLLS DON'T MIX?

Doesn't time fly? It is hard to believe that Barbie is that old. I have always admired the doll cakes, but I have boys so I never got to make one. I am glad that I didn't make one and put candles on the bottom as you did. You were lucky that nothing caught on fire other than the doll's hair.
