Birthday Cake

So this is my 3rd fondant cake...I'm getting better with each one...learning from my goofs lol. Let's start from the beginning.
Attempting to use a different bowl with my kitchenaid (mine broke)

Gave up and had to use the hand mixer

Cream cheese and butter for the icing
only had 2 round cake pans, so I used a square and just carved after
Barbie silhouette
lettering was a little off, but after it was on, there was no turning back

I used the Magnolia Bakery's Vanilla Birthday Cake recipe-


    Cake Batter

    • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 4 large eggs, at room temperature
    • 1 1/2 cups self rising flour
    • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Grease and lightly flour three 9 inch round cake pans, then line the bottoms with waxed paper.
  3. In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
  4. Add the sugar gradually and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  6. Combine the flours and add in four parts, alternating with the milk and the vanilla extract, beating well after each addition.
  7. Divide batter among the cake pans.
  8. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into center of cake comes out clean.
  9. Let cakes cool in the pans for 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire rack.
And I used the Cream Cheese Frosting II recipe from
2 8oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter softened
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1.In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until creamy. Mix in the vanilla, then gradually stir in the confectioners' sugar. Store in the refrigerator after use
