Emma's Rapunzel Cake

Today was... "The BEST day ever!" according to my sweet birthday girl.

My cute 7 year old.

So do you want to see her cake???


Ta Da!!!  Sorry if my naked Barbie picture just offended you.  BUT when I got done baking the cake and stuck the doll in there it just looked so funny I just had to take a picture.   Okay here is the real cake.

I always get this question so let me just save time....Yes, there really is cake in there. :)  I guess I just showed it to you so I guess you know there is cake in there. 

I think Emma liked it....





These are triple chocolate fudge cupcakes with lavender almond butter cream frosting and edible pearls.  They are as good as they sound.

To add to the ambiance I added a few Rapunzel-esk  flowers to the chandelier in the dining room.

I am planning on leaving these up for the party on Friday.


And if you are really nice I will give you a tutorial on how to make this Tangled themed Birthday wreath tomorrow.





Want more???  You can get the full party recap HERE.

  5. I stumbled across your blog last week and I LOVE it! You are so amazingly talented. And WOW on the Rapunzel cake. My 3 year old little girl wants a Rapunzel birthday party (her bday isn't until NOV)...i just might have to do something like this for her. Was it super time consuming? Looks like you used fondant, and I never have used it before, so I doubt mine would look as amazing as yours.
    Awesome job!

  9. Oh wow!!! I'm speechless!

    We are having a Rapunzel party for my little girl in June. I wish I could make a doll cake that cute. I actually made one a week or so ago out of big top cupcake.. but it was no where near that cute. Did you use fondant for her dress? Do you mind telling me how you decorated her?

    You did soooooo great!

  10. Absolutely amazing!!!! I think that is the best Barbie cake that I have ever seen. It is the first one where the dress actually looks like a perfect dress. Phenomenal work. The entire party is cute!!! I love Tangled, and so does my two-year-old boy; he calls it Princess movie.

  11. M'kay... I'm here visiting from Tatertots and Jello and can I just say that I usually detest those Barbie cakes. 9.9 times out of 10 they are hideous. May I congratulate you on being that .1 that actually NAILED it? The cake is beautiful! And what a fun party idea! Who doesn't love Rapunzel? :) Thanks for sharing!

  13. Why no tutorial for the cakes, including tower? Would LOVE to see how you did this, even if I have no chance of being able to do it myself. I always said I would never make a barbie cake as they all look like old-fashioned toilet roll covers - but this looks fantastic!

  14. absolutely one of the most clever themed birthday parties I have ever seen. Seen that cake a million times but never as Rapunzel.Great idea! I love the braided wreath... too cute.

  15. So as I scroll through the pictures when you're talking about the cake, I see the ingredients in the background and I'm wondering where the yellow spray paint gets mixed in with the cake? Bc... I know that what I usually bake can be deathly {tasting} but mixing spray paint might have the same effect ;)

    Beautiful. absolutely amazing, you're so talented!

    :) Yeah, I tend to multi task while I am cooking/crafting and I tend to always have some color of spray paint on my counter. So while I was making this cake every 15 mins I ran down to the basement the spray painted on my baby's crib... or I was just trying a new air brush effect. :)

  17. What is the name of the Barbie doll that you used in the cake? I think your cake is beautiful. It is exactly what I am looking for. Thank you for the great pictures.

  20. I want this for my 18th birthday sooo bad! ;) Is her top clothing made of icing? If so... How on earth did you do it?? Especially the sleeves!

    Great job, I love it!!!

  21. I was wondering if all the icing came off the Barbie. I am looking to make a cake like this for my daughter's 4th birthday and I am afraid to use her doll. Did most of the cake come off of the legs? I would hate to ruin her doll. Thanks in advance!

    1. The icing usually comes off just fine, but if you are worried about it, you can wrap her legs in plastic wrap and then stick her in the cake.
