If you have a little girl in your life, chances are at some stage she will ask for a Frozen birthday cake. Here is my version of a minimal fuss Elsa Frozen birthday cake that is sure to delight your wanna-be princess.
You don't need any special "dolly varden" cake tin to make this cake and all the decorations I've used were easily sourced from a large supermarket and toyshop. I've also purposely avoided use of a piping bag to keep this cake as simple as possible.
Change the food colouring and decorations to another colour like pink and you have the instructions for a generic doll cake.
: A couple of hours to decorate the cake
: Any Age
Buttercream icing has a yellow tint to it due to the butter so the blue food colouring will turn the icing to green before it turns to blue. I stopped adding the blue food colouring a little too early with this cake as I was concerned the colour was going to get too dark, but had I added just a little bit more I would have turned a light blue colour. I discovered this when I continued to add the blue colouring to get the darker blue colour for Elsa's dress.
For Australian readers, I've used The Creative Kitchen - Pirate Treasure Toppings
which can be purchased from Coles and Woolworths for around $6. The doll was purchased from Kmart for $2.50.
In my final pictures you may see that I've used edible silver shimmer powder but I was unhappy with the results and wouldn't use it again. I think the cake doesn't need it so I haven't mentioned it in the instructions.
