Step 1: Bake the Cake:

   - Preheat your oven according to the cake mix or recipe instructions.

   - Prepare the cake batter as directed on the package or in your chosen recipe.

   - Grease and line a cake pan, and pour the batter into the pan.

   - Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

   - Allow the cake to cool completely before decorating.

Step 2: Create the Pool:

   - Cut a rectangular section out of the center of the cake to create the pool shape.

   - Remove the cut-out piece and set it aside (you can use it to make cake pops or enjoy it as a snack).

   - Frost the inside of the pool area with blue frosting to create the water.

Step 3: Decorate the Pool Deck:

   - Cover the area around the pool with crushed graham crackers or cookies to resemble the pool deck.

Step 4: Dress Up Barbie:

   - Carefully wrap the lower half of the Barbie doll's body in plastic wrap.

   - Insert the Barbie into the center of the pool, making sure the plastic wrap protects her.

Step 5: Make the Beach Vibe:

   - Roll out white fondant and cut it into small beach towels or beach blanket shapes.

   - Place the fondant towels around the pool to create a beachy atmosphere.

Step 6: Add Pool Floaties and Fun:

   - Decorate the pool with colorful candies to represent pool floaties. Get creative and have fun with different shapes and colors!

Step 7: Final Touches:

   - Stick a miniature beach umbrella into the cake deck for some tropical flair.
