Did I ever tell you about the time I baked a Barbie cake for one of my very best friends for her 25th birthday? That was her birthday wish: A themed party in the key of Barbie.

Now I love to bake, but I wasn't blessed with any insane amount of talent. That didn't stop me from volunteering to make the cake. Sure, they sold it at our local grocery store for $45, but that seemed crazy expensive to my early-twenties self. Obviously, I was wrong.

After about 12 hours and a lot of tears (all mine), the cake was done. My friend was happy and I relished slicing into that pink pink pink skirt. Would I do it again? Sure, mostly for the story but also for the fun. Or maybe we'd say we would, then head to the store.


PS, Barbie came from the craft store. I am NOT responsible for her crazy hair.
