Themed parties are the best! I mean, I love them! But sometimes working with a copyrighted theme can be difficult without infringing on the laws that protect the creator of the image. The struggle to create a perfect themed cake (whether it's for a birthday party, baby shower, or even grooms cake) is real. I mean sure, we could fudge a little...who would ever know. But, honesty and integrity should be the center of every business model right?
When I get a call from someone wanting a themed cake one option is to purchase the characters and create a theme around the character. Most people don't understand what I'm saying, so today I'm going to show you!
Meet Elsa, Anna, and the other crew of Frozen! My guess is you already have! The Frozen craze has been going on strong for years and isn't fading among the little's of today. But how do you give your little princess her much desired Frozen cake? Simple. I purchased a Disney Character Box from the Disney Store ($15 for the set). It also came with a troll, but we didn't want him on our cake. So then we began to design our cake around our characters. The blue cake with the white chocolate drizzle creates the overlook look of the movie. We placed Elsa at the top, just like she was on the mountain and surrounded her with some blue isomalt, just like her castle. At the bottom we created some snow capped trees and placed some of the other characters around the base of the cake. Then there was Olaf...in his summer attire. Since Olaf is my favorite snowman, we had to use him on the cake. So, we created part of the cake to resemble the summer...just like the end of the movie (or Spring if I remember correctly). Creating some green grass, green trees, and a little waterfall (because the ice is now melted) we formed the perfect little scene for Olaf.
And there you have the perfectly adorable Character cake!! And let's not forget the bast part...the flavor. Well, this particular cake was a yummy French Vanilla cake with a fresh strawberry and cream cheese filling. No great looking cake is complete without a great taste too!!
