'FROZEN' themed 6th Birthday

Just waiting for this cake to be picked up today. It's for a little girl, Skyler, who is turning 6 and loves the movie Frozen. Who doesn't, it's one of the best Disney movies to come out. Anyway Skyler's mom Nina, who was referred to us by a mutual friend, contacted me and asked if I could make Skyler's birthday cake.

Skyler's mom did send me a picture of a cake they liked so I used the general idea and created this for Skyler.  It's actually a 2 tiered cake with the bottom tier in chocolate with cookies and cream frosting for the filling and the top tier is a vanilla cake with cookies and cream filling.

The staircase was created by carving the bottom cake and adding the carved part above it to join to the top tier.  Some cake was also used on the top tier to elevate the castle.  The blue staircase and base for the castle were covered in blue fondant, all else is done in white vanilla frosting to recreate snow.  A scatter of gum paste snow flakes and sparkly coarse sugar was added.

Here we have Elsa

and Anna

Kristof and Sven
and we can't forget the adorable Olaf, one of my favourite characters
These little characters are hard to find in Canada or US for that matter so they made the trip all the way from China just for us. I guess they must be on tour, LOL......little characters are great to add to any cake which gives the birthday girl or boy a memento and toy after the cake is done.

Happy Birthday Skyler!
We hope you enjoy your cake.
