Barbie I Can Be Rock Star

I was a Sindy girl when I was growing up. In fact, I never owned a Barbie, probably due to my mother deciding Barbie just wasn’t wholesome enough. Let’s face it, even back then, Barbie had a less than pure image. Perhaps Sindy’s demise was due to her wholesome, good two shoes image? Which one were you, Sindy or Barbie?

I bought Miss C her first Barbie when she was 2. It wasn’t really for her, it was for me, all those years longing for the Barbie I never had. 2 years on and she has 12 of them (I am only responsible for the first one 1). Here are a few of them.

Barbie Birthday Cake: Fit For A Princess

by 21stcenturymummy on August 10, 2010

Hi-5 to this fabulous Barbie birthday cake which we saw at a 4 year old’s “Princess-themed” birthday last week. The girls were dressed as princesses as was Addy, the Twizzle entertainer.

It looked like it could have been made by a cake designer, but was actually from Waitrose and cost £50. The birthday cake includes a Barbie doll and tasted delicious. It is made of vanilla sponge, with raspberry jam and buttercream, and is covered with soft icing (can be personalised too).

You can order it online using the Waitrose Deliver service.
