Photo above shows Australian model Erika Heynatz cutting a Barbie doll chocolate mud cake to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world's most popular doll as girls look on. The foreshores of Sydney Harbor and Sydney Opera House are shown in the background.

The cake is covered in gold icing, gold silk and 2,000 Swarovski crystals and was based on the design for toymaker Mattel's limited edition 50th Anniversary Barbie Doll, which wears a champagne silk gown.
