  • In a large bowl, make up cake batter for both cake mixes. *Optional - for a more dense and moist cake substitute half of the water for the same amount of sour cream.
  • Grease and flour a medium and small glass bowl.
  • Fill with batter until they are a little over 3/4 full. Use remaining batter for cup cakes.
  • Bake at 325 for about an hour or until the center feels set.
  • At exactly 7 minutes after you remove the cake from the oven, turn out of bowl onto wax paper. This prevents the cake from sweating and sticking to the bowl.
  • Stick the cakes in the freezer for a few hours until they are really firm.
  • Layer the small cake onto the large cake and trim any over hang.
  • Layer with frosting then decorate with more frosting. Stick your Princess or Barbie in the center of the cake and frost over her upper half to make it look like a dress.
