This cake is especially made for my dear goddaughter Andrea on her 3rd Birthday last June 18, 2013. I used a 3-layer moist chocolate cake sponge with chocolate ganache for Barbie‘s gown. For the recipe, visit my other posts at https://myorangetoque.wordpress.com/2013/06/17/moist-chocolate-cake/. And for the dress, I used a simple royal icing recipe.
30 grams Egg Whites
165 grams Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted
5 grams Cream of Tartar / Lemon Juice
Food Color (Red & Yellow)
- In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the egg whites with the lemon juice or cream of tartar.
- Add the sifted sugar and beat on low speed until smooth. If necessary, to get the right consistency, add more sugar or water.
- Add food coloring.
You can replace Cream of Tartar with lemon juice to add more flavor but only about 1/2 tsp or less. Since we are not baking / cooking the egg whites, we need to add acidity to avoid bacteria and molds. You can add more confectioners’ sugar if the icing is still runny or add water or more egg whites if it is already hard to pipe.
You can choose whatever piping tip you desire for the decoration but for this cake I used star tip #30.
Just make sure the doll your using for the cake is clean and with no toxic materials.
* Happy Birthday Andrea! Ninang wish you all the best in life. Will always be here for you forever. Lots of love.
