In April it was my Daughter’s 3rd Birthday. Yes she is crazy about Frozen and yes she asked for a Frozen cake and YES I made one.
My cake making mojo decided that it was the perfect time to bugger off and so what would normally take me a few days to bake & decorate took almost 1 week. I made about 6 cakes and they were all crap. I even weighed butter for one of the cakes but didn’t realise that the scales were resting up against my blender and it was adding 300gms more…so that cake had a shite load of butter.
Fondant snowflakes (I used a plunger cookie cutter) in white
I had pinned heaps of frozen themed cakes and parties on Pinterest and also in this world void of anything Frozen related managed to find a whole set of Frozen cake toppers on Ebay that had Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Olaf, Kristoph, Prince whats-his-face and the Deer one (having watching Frozen over eleventy billion times I am surprised that both those two characters names aren’t FROZEN into my brain!).
The top layer of the cake is all covered.
Fondant in hand I covered my cakes and also found this awesome recipe online for making a sugar version of ‘Breaking Bad’ blue meth – not the real stuff the fake stuff that they would use on the show. So I figured if I could make that and and break it into shards and stick it around the cake and on top then it has that icy thing going on.
Awesome, so I got all the bits together and the night before her party was up until 1am putting all the finishing touches to her cake.
I tried to fix it and it made everything worse.
Lucky for me I had a piping bag full of royal icing and so I made another quick batch of blue sugar ice crystals and cracked some new shards to add to the cake. They melted again but by that stage the party was in full swing and no one actually realised that there was a ‘cake issue’. One of my friends said she thought it was supposed to be that way.
Anyway…here is the finished cake in all it’s glory. My daughter didn’t see the cake with the characters on it until about 1hr before her party. The look on her face and her saying over and over that “this is the best party I have ever had” made my day. She is happy…and I was happy!
