I have finally done it, it has been my dream since i was four and I am proud to say I have finally made... THE BARBIE CAKE! It may have taken about four hours of baking, crying, failing, smooshing, squeezing and dipping my hair in a substantial amount of icing but it was SO worth it.
I started out by planning to make a circular flat cake and a rounded cake to stack on top of each other to make the dress - this did NOT work. The flat cake worked perfectly (the cake inside is also pink) but the dome shaped cake completely fell apart so in the end I had to stick together lots of small parts of cake to try and form a dress shape and then quickly cover them in more pink icing than you have ever seen in your whole life, before anyone noticed.
I think if I never do anything again in my life this will definitely count as my lifetime achievement. I am so proud!
on another note... the baftas were very interesting/boring and although I did love the Kings Speech and was SO glad that Colin won, I thought some of the others should have won as well, ESPECIALLY the absoulutely incredible 127 hours.
I hope everyone had a lovely valentines day.
