A Barbie doll cake is so perfect for this birthday party! It’s pretty easy to create with a few basic baking tools and a gorgeous Barbie™ doll.

The best part of a birthday party? Cake and ice cream, of course! A great idea is to pre-scoop ice cream before the party begins so you can serve it quickly with cake when the time comes! Dress up ice cream bowls with cute pink paper bows for an extra special touch.

    Love the colors, designs and ideas for a Barbie party. My six year old twin girls are excited about seeing this on your blog. They recently asked about a Barbie party but I wasn’t convinced till I saw the way this was put together. Thanks!

    Absolutely lovely. Congratulations on the partnership! This party brings back so much wonderful memories of my sister and I playing with our Barbie dolls… Can’t wait to share this with her and my followers. They will absolutely love it!

    You did an amazing job incorporating Barbie’s vintage past yet keeping her modern and fresh! I’m dying to know who you worked with at Mattel on this- marketing or licensing! If marketing- they’ve come a LONG way- GO YOU! Having spent 6 years working on Mainline Barbie (all the dolls in your shoot) I can say you brought style and grace to the Barbie Party!

    Gorgeous! I loved the pink and black combination. It came out soft and elegant. Loved the giant balloons and the satin ribbons.
    May I ask how did you make or where can I get the lines with circles hanging on the wall? I am hosting a party at home and it is perfect for covering my naked wall. Thanks!

    Heather says

    Just GORGEOUS!! Kim can you please tell me where you purchased that simple white table you used for the dessert table? It’s the perfect size and love the clean lines.

    love LOVE this party. Quick question. Any idea which Barbie was used for the Barbie cake?? There are so many out there and this one in particular lends itself to a cake moreso than most than I’ve seen. Thanks!

    I want to have a Barbie themed baby shower. I love pink, and grew up with Barbie. I am hoping I can find more grown up ideas, and that I can figure out a way to make cards with an S in the middle for her name. Her name will be Sofia. Also my shower will be coed and I’m thinking about how to include Ken. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Stacey

    This is so darling! I bet you anything if I show this to my sassy 4 year old she is going to insist on a Barbie party! :) And if that gets her off the Frozen train I will count that a WIN! :)

    Quick question – where are the striped table runners from? I have been looking for something like that for my dining room and those are perfection!

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Kim, I LOVE how you put a party together. My daughter is celebrating her 6th birthday, and I’m looking for the exact same outfit Kate is wearing. Where can I purchase it from?

    Heidi says

    I was wondering what did you use for centerpieces and also what color of table cloths did you use?
    Because I dont see any pictures.

    Thank you
