Amy had a "Fairy Princess" theme for her birthday party so, for the first time, I made one of those cakes with the legless Barbie stuck in the top! Luckily we did have a legless Barbie already, courtesy of Sophie who discovered that Barbie was not able to do the splits past 180º! To make the skirt shape, I baked the cake in a ceramic pudding bowl and it actually baked very easily in it. I'd never baked a cake in something that wasn't tin so the fingers and toes were all crossed!
I was quite proud of the outcome and now Sophie wants one for her birthday at the end of January.
