Happy 6th Birthday Ruby Roo!

Ruby wanted a Barbie cake & she got what she asked for. Barbie was covered in Fondant. I used the Wilton Wonder Pan for the skirt. Susana gave Barbie a new hairdo. She turned out perfect.
The cupcakes were Vanilla, Lemon & Chocolate topped with vanilla or lemon buttercream.
The cupcake tree is made out of 1/4" foam posterboard. Top tier is 8, Second tier is 11", Third tier is 14", Fourth tier is 17" and Fifth tier is 20". It held Barbie plus 108 cupcakes.
Lemon Buttercream

2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel (optional)

In a bowl, beat butter until light & fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating well. Beat in lemon juice (and lemon peel if desired) until desired spreading consistency. 1 batch frosts 24 cupcakes or a 13 x 9 cake or a 2 layer 9 inch round cake.

Jan wants to know where is Barbie's head?
She wanted to see the hairdo that Susanna did.
