Frozen birthday cakes are pretty much a given on our order list each year. Yes, even in the glaring heat of summer it won’t be odd to find us crafting an Olaf from scratch! They’re too much fun… perfect for birthdays. Above is a cute single tier version we created recently. A special little lady turned 2 whole years old and obviously needed a cake to celebrate. You can read more about the different aspects of this sweet design below!
Cute Frozen birthday cake
For a more sleek look we stuck to just a few design elements on the cake itself. On a pale ice blue cake we added some stylised mountains in a blue a few shades darker. A flurry of fondant snowballs trim the base and sparkling snowflakes featured on the front. We then added little Mila’s name in glittering silver painted letters. Obviously for that extra frosty look we lightly dusted the surface with an edible pearlescent lustre.
Yay! Olaf is pretty cool to make (pun intended). The trickiest part are those skinny eyebrows that we cut via hand. We end up working with such tiny features that we do wonder if we should get jeweller’s goggles sometimes! To finish his look Olaf gets a wide toothy grin, big excited eyes and a cute carrot nose to finish.
Of course would it even be a Frozen cake without Elsa? She is featured on top with Olaf having fun in the snow. We are totally loving Elsa’s hair on this cake too. We experimented with a few different ways to give her a dramatic side braid. First we sketched out ideas and then tested some. We settled on the final version because we thought the chunkiness of it looked cartoon-like and fun.
Elsa’s outfit was somewhat simplified as we thought that would lend well with the overall look of the cake. We definitely had to keep her cool train though. We angled it to sit a little to the side. What’s the point of a train if you can’t see it right?
Finally, we finished the this cute Frozen birthday cake with a shimmering silver painted 2! We even debossed it with a sweet snowflake print.
