Barbie Doll Fondant

I intended to made Barbie doll cake for my younger
gal's b'day this coming May. But since now my niece
requested for the same cake, I shall take this as an
warm-up exercise...
The fondant is rather soft and is not easy to wrap
around the Barbie. It stretches...
But I had tried my best....Happy Birthday Jolyn..

Oops..My cake crack once i inserted the Barbie in.

I should have cut a bigger hole in the centre to

allow more space.

The Barbie skirt is made up with 3 sizes of butter cake.
6", 5", 4".
