My daughter wanted an Ariel cake so I started doing a lot of reseach as I've heard all sorts of stories (horror) making a barbie cake. The best idea was saran wrapping the legs of the doll if you don't use a doll topper, and making a base for the barbie (1 or 2) 9" round cakes so that the barbie isn't too tall for the cake. I ended up using just 1 9" round for the base and Ariel was still a little too tall. I was able to pipe frosting around her waist so it wasn't a problem. I tried adding some crushed pineapples and juice to the cake mix as I normally bake my cakes this way, but it was a disaster. The taste was fantastic, but the cake was so heavy, it was splitting everywhere. So, I would follow the directions to the tee on the cake box. I did use 2 boxes. I agree with the others that the pampered chef bowl is the best. All of this work was so worth it all. I would make this again for sure!
