Barbie has all the luck. She's a hair shy of 50 and if she were a real woman, would weigh 110 pounds and measure in at 39-18-33. And guess whose beating down her plastic door to design couture bridal gowns for our perky childhood friend? No less than Vera Wang, Bob Mackie, Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, Caroline Herrera and your neighborhood David's Bridal. Barbie has been in more wedding gowns than Liz Taylor. And in a wierd twist, Barbie WAS turned into Elizabeth Taylor to commemorate her role in the 1950 movie "Father of the Bride."
Celebrity cakes? Collette Peters of New York City has done it all. Not only does she write books and teach classes, her cakes have made an entrance at parties by Bette Midler, Whoopi Goldberg and the Rolling Stones. The downside to these masterpieces? Rolled fondant and gum paste flowers have a dry, bland taste. You just can't beat old fashioned buttercream icing for a delicious cake. These are all so amazing, it's hard to pick a favorite.
