EGGLESS VANILLA CAKE FOR BARBIE CAKE.
I still can't believe that maha is 2 already. Its been fantastic being her mom and being with her the whole time. I love to see her growing up, but sometimes it feels really hard to see her growing up..I know every mom has that feeling. For her first birthday i made a 6 layer rainbow cake. I was thinking what to make for her second birthday, finally i decided to make her favourite doll cake which is barbie. I just love the way how she says barbie which her toddler speech!

We decided to take it as a small party by inviting just some close relatives and friends. As usual i decided to cook the meals. This time i decided to make finger foods instead of meals. So i planned the menu few days in advance and prepared for it couple days back. I will share how i planned in my baby blog.
This is what i made, first the guest were welcomed with a drink mint ginger soda. Then i made nutella and peanut butter finger sandwich, spicy veg mayo sandwich, chilli paneer skewers, fruit kebabs, spring rolls, potato and peas samosa, garlic cheese bombs and icecream with strawberry sauce. I also made monster cookies to give as a take home gift for the guest.
I really enjoyed hosting the party and maha enjoyed the cake as well. I somehow managed to take pictures of the cake, so here i am sharing it..Hope you will love it..

For Sugar Water:
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Water - 1 cup
Strawberry Essence - 1/2 tsp
Two 18 cm Round Baking Pan
One 900 ml Borosil Glass Bowl (around 18 cm circumference)
Two Piping Bags with Star tips
Plastic Wrap or Cling Film
First step, preheat oven to 160 degree C.
Take two 18 cm baking pan and baking bowl, oil it well and dust it well with flour. Coat it on all sides and tap off the excess flour. Set this aside.
Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a sifter and sieve well. set aside.
Take all the ingredients given for cake including the flour in a bowl and mix well.
Divide this between the batter. Fill the round cake pan just half way through. Now pop this in oven and bake for the round cake for 35 mins. Bake the the cake in bowl for an hour or till the cake is baked. Remove the cake from oven and let it cool completely. You can even freeze the cake for 30 mins.
Now remove the cake and cut the doom in the top to make it even. Take the cake which is baked in bowl and cut it in half.
Now use a knife to cut a small circle in the niddle of all the cake to make space to insert the barbie.
Now make sugar water by mixing everything. Take a plate and place a round cake on that. Place strips of parchment surrounding the cake. Brush the cake generously with sugar water. Now spread butter cream on top and place another cake on top, brush with sugar water, spread buttercream on top. Now take the bowl cake half and top with sugar water, place it on top of the frosting and spread some more buttercream, place the final half and brush it with sugar water.
Finally cover the whole cake with buttercream. Chill the cake for couple of hours.
Now pipe the cake with butter cream, insert barbie and decorate it as shown in pics.
1)If you want a little taller barbie cake, bake three round cake instead of two and one cake in glass bowl.
2)Make sure you check the height of the barbie and assume the height of the cake and adjust it.
3)The cake batter which i used is a very basic cake batter recipe and it is easy to work with.
