    I remember my mom making me a Barbie birthday cake when I was just a little girl. Probably around 40 yrs. ago! Still remember how much I loved that cake!

    this is really cute, I rememeber acuban woman that use to make a Barbie for on top of a round cake , but the base of the skirt was poster board and she would roll the squares of toilet paper around a knitting needle and then kind of scrunch it and glue loops of it on the poster board, and for the top of the dress it would be 3 or 4 of these looped from the waste upwards. I don't know if anyone else knows what I'm talking about but they were very cute, not edible, but cute.
