  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease three (23cm) cake tins and line with baking parchment.
  2. In a mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, bicarb and salt; set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla until frothy.

Finally place the third layer on top and cover top and sides with the remaining frosting. Decorate with rainbow sprinkles; place a plastic Elsa figurine into the centre of the cake. Slice and serve.

Alternating between the milk and dry ingredients, gradually pour into the butter mixture. Mixing on low to medium speed until combined

Using another large mixing bowl and a hand mixer, beat the eggs until stiff peaks form

Fold the eggs into the cake batter. Finally, divide the batter evenly between three mixing bowls

Leave one bowl white – In the second bowl, mix in 2 drops of sky blue gel food coloring – In the third bowl, mix in 5-6 drops of sky blue gel food coloring and pour each batter into their own pan.

Bake the cakes in the oven for 23-26 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean in the center.

Allow the cakes to cool completely before removing them from the cake pans.

When the cakes have cooled place the cakes onto a cutting board and using a cake slicer, remove the domes from the cakes.

You’ll end up with white icing and blue icing.

How to Decorate a Frozen themed Cake

Start by placing the darker blue cake layer onto the cake board and scoop about 1 cup of frosting onto the first layer and smooth it out with a spatula.

Place the light blue layer of cake onto the first layer of frosting and then scoop another cup of frosting onto the second layer of cake and smooth it out evenly.

Place the last layer of cake onto the second layer of frosting and scoop the remaining of white frosting onto the cake making sure to cover it completely.

Using the spatula, scoop some blue icing onto the white cake in random places and smooth the frosting evenly.

Carefully place the white chocolate snowflakes randomly all over the cake

Winter Cupcakes

This recipe only calls for a few ingredients and if you use premade cupcakes, you don’t even have to worry about cooking them!

  • One dozen vanilla cupcakes
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup white candy melts
  • 5-6 oz. baby blue fondant (you can take 4-5 oz. white fondant and add 2 small drops of blue gel food coloring to achieve the right shade)
  • 2-3 oz. white fondant
  • 1 circular cookie cutter, about 2.5 inches in diameter

If you really want to make this recipe even easier buy store bought white icing too.

Before decorating these cupcakes, ensure that they’re completely cool to the touch. If you’ve ever tried decorating cupcakes that are warm then you know they become a drippy mess.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer and beat together butter, icing sugar and milk. These ingredients make up the buttercream.

Start the electric mixer on low and gradually increase to high. Once all the ingredients are well-combined and form semi-stiff peaks, the buttercream is done.

*Remember you can always skip this step by purchasing a jar of white icing.

The next step is to roll the baby blue fondant so that it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.

Use the fondant embosser to give the blue fondant a quilted look. Technically you could skip this step, but we love the way the quilted pattern makes the cupcake look.

Using the circular cookie cutter, cut out 12 fondant circles from the baby blue fondant and press one blue fondant circle on top of each cupcake.

Place white candy melts into a bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals until they are completely melted, stirring between each interval.

Line a baking sheet with wax paper so you can make your snowflakes without them sticking.

Scoop the melted candy into a piping bag and pipe out snowflakes on the lined baking sheet.

To achieve the snowflake candy, start by piping out a one-inch line. Follow the line with an “X.”

Pipe out two dots on either side of the candy lines and allow your snowflakes to set.

To assemble one braid, roll out 3 spheres from the white fondant, about ½ an inch in size.

Roll out the spheres into long, thin strips, about 5 inches in length.

Press the tip of all three strips and braid.

Press the braid onto one edge of each cupcake, trimming where necessary. (Note: If the fondant isn’t sticky enough to press onto the cupcake, brush water on the back of the braid to secure.)

Use a toothpick to dot white buttercream on the back of the snowflake candies. Secure one on each cupcake.

Studies have shown that if you like this, you will also love the following recipes. I have pulled them together for you right here!


Preheat oven to 350°F and prepare a muffin tin with cupcake liners.

TIP: Since you’ll be removing the cake from the liners before serving, we recommend reusable silicone cupcake liners. We love ours!

Prepare cake batter according to box directions and scoop batter into your muffin pan.

Bake at 350°F for 21 minutes, or what the box recommends.

Remove from oven and allow to cool, then pop the cupcakes out of the liners and into a mixing bowl.

Add 1/2 Tablespoon of frosting to the crumbled cake and mix together. Add more frosting as needed until you have a thick dough-like consistency.

Form dough into balls of about 1 Tablespoon each.

IF MAKING CAKE POPS: This is where you add the lollipop sticks!

Place balls onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper and freeze for 30 minutes.

While cake balls chill, prepare your white chocolate coating by melting the white chocolate in a double boiler.

Dip cake pops into the melted chocolate until fully coated, then place back on the cookie sheet. Repeat until all are coated.

While chocolate is still damp, sprinkle blue and white jimmies on top of the cake balls.

Allow chocolate coating to set completely and enjoy!


How to Make an Elsa Doll Cake

Materials & Ingredients:

* 2 boxes of vanilla pound cake (I used a 360 g or 13 oz box from Trader Joe's)
* 2 pints or 1 liter of blue butter cream frosting (simply add some blue gel food coloring to vanilla butter cream, recipe here)
* a clean Elsa doll without garments
* round cookie cutter to fit roughly doll diameter
* over-proof, round bowl (mine was 7 inch or 18 cm in diameter at the widest part)
* round cake pan, same diameter as widest part of the bowl
* 200g or 7 oz white fondant
* icing sugar for dusting
* rolling pin
* a palette knife
* a turn table (optional, but very useful)
* snowflake cookie cutters
* hard, white candy balls for decor (like Sixlets)

1) Bake one of the cakes into a round bowl. Bake the second cake into a round cake pan. Let both cakes cool completely.

2) Use a cookie cutter to make holes in the center of the cakes. Keep the center of the cakes to use later.

3) Frost the cakes together and the outside too with a first crumb coat. Let frosting set hard in the fridge or freezer in between coats to make the job easier. Add a second and third coats of the buttercream if needed to cover the entire cake. You don't have to smooth the icing totally, since it's supposed to be a dress, so some ruffles are ok!

4) Insert the doll though the center of both cakes. TIP: Use the left over cake to prop and secure the doll if needed. Add frosting to adhere the doll sides to the cake. Decorate with round candy to hide the seam line.

5) Decorate with fondant snowflakes and more candy on the base of the cake.

Fondant Elsa, Anna and Olaf

In this Disneys Frozen cake tutorial I show you how to make a fondant / modelling paste Elsa cake topper to use on your frozen themes cakes. Modelling paste may be better to use then fondant for our Elsa cake doll, modelling paste and gum paste are the same thing. I have decided to make this Elsa cake figure from the Disney film Frozen because of its high popularity and people asking me to make a tutorial for it.

You can see at the end of the video tutorial I place Elsa on a Frozen cake with her sister Anna, you can watch the fondant Anna cake decorating tutorial here:

Melt the white chocolate melts in the microwave by putting them in a microwave safe bowl, setting the microwave to medium power setting, and microwaving for intervals of 1 minute to begin with. Stir between zaps and reduce to less time as the chocolate starts to look more melted. In my microwave it takes around 3-5 minutes but all microwaves are different and cooking times can vary (I can’t remember the exact time but as long as you keep on checking and stirring the chocolate it shouldn’t burn). The chocolate is ready when it has no lumps left and is smooth and glossy.

Once the chocolate is melted pour a third of it onto one of the sheets of baking paper and spread it out thinly with a cake spatula. Pour another third out and immediately sprinkle some blue jelly crystals on it to look like frozen sparkles. With the last third add a few drops of blue food colouring and mix it in. Then spread this last third out on some baking paper the same as the other two and add some blue jelly crystal sparkles over the top. Leave the chocolate for a while until it goes hard. Once it has you can peel the baking paper off (it should come off easily). Then put the chocolate sheets onto a chopping board and cut them into jagged pieces very roughly with a knife, so they look like spikes of ice.

Finally, decorate the cake with the ice spikes and frozen figurines. The cream cheese icing is a nice consistency to jab the ice slabs into and they stay up pretty well. I basically just arranged a few larger spikes in the middle and some smaller ones around the edge of the cake, randomly putting the blue pieces here and there. I fit Elsa, Anna, Olaf and the Moose on the top of the cake and placed the male characters on the cake board around them. I spread some of the left over chocolate slabs around the cake to enhance the Winter feel, and that’s pretty much it! Ta da! The easiest Frozen cake ever.
