I haven’t seen a Barbie cowgirl doll cake yet, using the new Mattel Barbie doll, that looks like Margot Robbie in the new Barbie Movie but I’m sure they’ll be some soon. However, the Barbie doll itself is quite expensive, so making your own using a regular Barbie and finding a costume for her might be significantly less expensive than using the new collectible doll inside a cake.
