We decided a week out from my daughter’s birthday that we were going to do a little party with two of her friends. The problem is that I don’t know how to do anything ‘little’. Our playdate turned in to a full fledged Pinterest inspired party complete with tissue poms, tulle chairs, a Barbie ‘theater’, yummy food, and a Barbie cake!
I struggled with the cake at first. We try to keep our treats naturally sweetened, usually with honey or maple syrup. I knew that I wanted her cake homemade and I found a lot of recipe possibilities. The problem was that I didn’t have a lot of time to experiment and see what would or wouldn’t work in terms of baking it in to a tall Barbie cake. I ended up making the King Arthur’s Tender White Cake recipe using all organic ingredients.
