“Barbie is an icon spanning multiple generations because of her message of empowerment, positivity, and simply brilliance; our team is honoured and excited to bring that to life through our sweet creations.”

From 4 June to 31 July, Vive Cake Boutique in Central will undergo a magical transformation to embody the Barbie theme. The boutique will incorporate signature elements of the celebration, from the pink and white candy stripe wallpaper, to the sprinkle of Barbie portraits and stickers around.  Entry door will bear stunning floral designs, inviting diners to step into a world created by VIVE and Barbie.
