4th of July Stacked Cake- Cake Decorating-Buttercream

A very small cake can make a big statement when placed on a tall pedestal. This mini stacked cake is made of three single layer cakes split and filled. They are and 8 inch round a 6 inch round and a 3 inch round. This design turns out to be quite versatile. It can be used not only for the 4th of July but for Memorial Day,  Veteran's Day, a returning Serviceman or Woman or even a Patriotic Wedding Cake. 
See how to make this design as well as ideas for the pedestal.

Wedding Barbie Doll Cake- Cake Decorating- Buttercream- Video

I wanted to design a Barbie Cake With a Mermaid Style Skirt. It took some time to figure out that I could just decorate the Barbies Body and use a small cake for the ruffled bottom of the skirt. I used Leah's smoothing technique to get a slim smooth dress. There are a million dress designs that want to make! I don't really have any little girls or Bridal showers to make it for and one Bride Barbie Video is enough. so for now I'll just have to dream about them :)
