Step 1: Bake the Cupcakes:

   - Preheat your oven according to your cupcake recipe instructions.

   - Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners.

   - Prepare the cupcake batter as per your chosen recipe.

   - Fill each cupcake liner about two-thirds full with the batter.

   - Bake the cupcakes until they're beautifully golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

   - Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before decorating.

Step 2: Create the Barbie Heels:

   - Melt pink candy melts or modeling chocolate according to the package instructions.

   - Carefully pour the melted candy or chocolate into the Barbie high-heel shoe mold.

   - Allow the candy or chocolate to set completely before gently removing the heels from the mold.

Step 3: Frost the Cupcakes:

   - Fit a piping bag with a star tip and fill it with pink buttercream frosting.

   - Swirl the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes to create a pretty and generous swirl.

Step 4: Decorate the Cupcakes:

   - Roll out white fondant and cut out small strips to resemble the straps of a high-heel shoe.

   - Attach the fondant strips to the Barbie heels to complete the look.

   - Dust the heels with edible gold luster dust for that touch of sparkle and luxury.

   - Adorn the cupcakes with edible pearls or silver dragees for added elegance.
