Elsa Cake for a Frozen Birthday Party

Like most little girls, does your daughter love Elsa from the Disney movie Frozen?  Mine does, which is why I was talked into making an Elsa cake for her Frozen-themed birthday party. 

So I got out some Duff blue food colouring, some edible gold and silver food spray and got to work.

The dress portion of the cake was an angel-food cake with an icy mint buttercream. Under the 'snow' lay a Flourless Icy Mint Chocolate Truffle Cake, which was absolutely delicious.  The blue icing was also a minty buttercream.

I used white fondant for Elsa's sleeves and I took apart and washed my daughter's doll for Elsa's upper body.  Let's face it, the hair colour on those doll's are a perfect match, so why try to recreate it in gumpaste?  I used buttercream icing to slick her hair back and get a good 'Elsa braid'.

The shimmering effect was created by edible gold and silver food spray that I found in the cake section of Michael's. The beads were candy pearls.

I also made a small Olaf out of gumpaste and a large Olaf out of cardboard for a blind-folded "Place the Nose on Olaf"  game.  A roll of Frozen wrapping paper helped with the table decorations and an icy style tree that I got at the party store.

The party was a success!

Here is a photo gallery of how the cake came together:
