I made the purple, Hollywood mountains around the cake and added spots of sparkling glitter to look like the twinkling lights along the mountain side.
Everything was hand cut out of MMF (except for the alphabet cutters used on the, Happy Birthday). For the lettering, I used black MMF and dusted it over with blue pearl dust and rainbow glitter. I made her name, Riley, using a Barbie font which can be downloaded for free here.
I had such a hard time with the face and the nose...She went through 3 face transformations and quite a lot of sculpting before I settled with this one...must have spent close to 3 hours on her face alone. The easiest part was the arm and hand. For the arm, I used the tips on a video tutorial by Make Your Cakes - It shows you how to sculpt arms and legs easily. She did have a bare arm until my 4 year old daughter said that Barbie needs a bracelet and ring. These were added especially at her request =D
Cake: 9 inch White Vanilla Cake filled with Raspberry IMBC and decorated in MMF.
