The hottest, pinkest movie of the summer is set to hit cinemas on July 21: Barbie, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, directed by Greta Gerwig. Thanks to what must be an impressive marketing budget (and a slew of fuschia-toned food collaborations), you probably already knew all that. Now you only have four days to decide which Barbie-themed desserts you plan to smuggle into your local theater. From cheesecakes to ruby-hued rugelach, we’ve pulled together the pinkest treats in our archive.
There’s something for Barbie stans of all stripes: We’re talking fluffy marshmallow cookies coated in chocolate, for a squishy snack just as immaculate as the plastic queen herself. Loud and proud supporters can bake a statement peanut butter and jelly dome cake, frosted in a shade similar to B’s very own pink waterslide. And for the risk-averse dollies who don’t want to get busted by the theater attendant: You might want to store a couple of low-profile raspberry thumbprints in your cargo pants. No matter which dessert you choose, it’s very important you blast “Barbie Girl,” the 1997 hit song by Aqua, on repeat while cooking. We don’t make the rules.
