Cute Frozen Birthday Cake!

Fun Frozen birthday cake by Juniper Cakery



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!

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?

Olaf From Frozen Birthday Cake!

Frozen is always a popular theme we get asked to re-create in cake form. We’ve whipped up shimmering snowflake encrusted cake pops, mini cakes glistening with sugar ice, and beautiful isomalt icicles perched on top of frosty looking cupcakes… even in the middle of July! One of our first cakes of 2015 was even a delightfully fun and subtle Frozen-inspired birthday cake for a huge Olaf fan.

As usual with cake orders we have a list of requests. This sweet cake needed to be white with a few snowflakes and edible snowballs, feature the lucky recipient’s age, have a large bow situated somewhere on the finish design and most importantly a fun-loving edible Olaf character jumping for joy on top!

Flavour wise the cake was a drool-inducing marshmallow and chocolate cake! We baked Belgian chocolate layers of cake before filling them with our own marshmallow cream and crumb coating with a chocolate fudge buttercream. We even covered the cake with marshmallow fondant!

Our little Olaf model is 100% edible from his modelling chocolate arms to his marshmallow fondant tummy. We began our figure by researching and gathering together lots of images of Olaf from the movie. We sketch and take note of little details such as the positioning of facial features. This process can take a little time, but really helps to get characters looking perfect!

Our happy Olaf cake left us along with a large batch of Frozen themed vanilla marshmallow cake pops too ready for a fantastic Frozen themed birthday party!
