Elsa cupcake cake with bodice – Step by step

I’m no baker, or decorator, and I have only ever made about 5 birthday cakes in my life. But, over two days last week, I created an Elsa dress cupcake cake for my daughter’s 5th birthday party.  Which happened to be a Frozen-themed party (as if it was ever going to be anything else). I chose to make a cupcake cake, because:

  1. I’m pretty well experienced in making cupcakes.
  2. A mistake on an individual cupcake level, or even batch level, seemed easier to rectify than an error with a whole large cake
  3. I had the idea to hand the pulled apart cupcakes out individually at the end of the party, in cake pods, and together with the party favours.

My daughter’s party was on a Sunday morning and I actually started making the cakes on Friday afternoon.  The decorating bit happened on Saturday.  I had, however, been planning the cake for quite some time and so I had gathered the materials and ingredients over a period of a couple of weeks.

My inspiration for the cake came mainly from these two Frozen-themed cupcake cakes.

The Anna dress cupcake cake was my particular favourite. I love the cape and the bodice particularly.  The Elsa dress also gave me inspiration for the snowflakes, organza cape and colour scheme.

I took the best of both designs to create my own cake plan/design (as below). My sketch was not quite to the standard of illustrations you’d find on Bake Off and clearly my maths is crap. But, here, I was able to depict for the first time, the key differentiator of my Elsa dress cake: the addition of the glimmering frozen fractal bodice.  I had not seen a true Elsa bodice on Pinterest or anywhere across the Internet over the past six months of working on Frozen Party Ideas.  I knew that my daughter and all her friends truly believed that the best dressing up Elsa dress was the Disneystore one, with a panel of horizontal sequins, so why shouldn’t the best cake have those too.

With this plan to hand, I worked out my materials and ingredients list for an Elsa cupcake cake with shimmering bodice.

Ingredients

To make 48 cupcakes (you’ll only use 33, but you’ll want to choose the best ones).

  • 9 eggs
  • 611g butter
  • 611g caster sugar
  • 611g self raising flour
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla essence

Edible decorations

Tools and materials

Day 1:

Step 1: Make the cupcakes

The first step is to make the massive batch of cupcake mix. I used nine eggs as this cupcake cake dress is large.  You should always weigh your eggs to give you the required weights of the other cupcake ingredients.  My eggs weighed 611g, which meant I needed 611g of butter, sugar and flour too.  Tips here are to ensure your butter is at room temperature before you start, add the vanilla essence early on and introduce the flour to the mixture very gradually.

Step 2: bake the cupcakes

I needed to bake four batches of twelve cupcakes as I only have one baking tray.  They went into the oven at 180 degrees centigrade and baked for around 20 minutes.

Step 3: Make your snowflake decorations

This bit was my favourite part of making this cake.  I was able to use my new decorating toys for the first time.  I loved using my snowflake plunger cutters, it was almost therapeutic. I chose the KitchenCraft plunger cutters from Amazon.

Plunging out snowflakes was very easy and fun.  I put them to one side on a piece of kitchen towel.

May have gotten carried away with the mini fondant snowflakes! So cute!

Embedded image permalink

Then, the fondant snowflakes went into hibernation until the next day, when they topped the Elsa cupcake cake. I placed them all carefully into a tupperware container.

Embedded image permalink

Step 4: Make the fondant “Happy Birthday” text

The last activity for day 1 was cutting out the words Happy Birthday <Name> with my Wilton 40-Piece Alphabet/ Number Cut-Outs Set.  This was not as easy as I had assumed it would be.  It turned out that I needed to roll it out really thinly in order to be able to get the fondant out of the cutters more easily.

Until I realised that, this step did not go well.

Embedded image permalink

Embedded image permalink

This is what my text looked like in the end.  I used the turquoise fondant icing for this text, as it stood out best on the silver cake board. The white power is icing sugar, which disappeared before I place the letters on the cake board.  These letters also went into hibernation until the next day.Embedded image permalink

Step 5: Test your cupcakes in position on the board

I did this only for my own satisfaction to ensure that the cake was on the right track. After this I stopped for day 1.  Once completely cooled, the cakes went into tins to ensure they did not go stale.

Embedded image permalink

Day 2

Step 6: Stick the cape onto the board

The cape laid underneath the bodice and skirt of the Elsa dress cupcake cake, but the risk with this is that it could slip about on the board.  So the first step is to secure it, invisibly, to the board.  For this I used both double-sided sticky tape and quite a few blobs of thick water icing as glue.  I had to make sure I placed these in positions that would be hidden by the cupcakes when I place those on top of the cape.

Embedded image permalink

I then pushed and rubbed the cape onto the tape and icing glue, until it was firmly in place.

Embedded image permalink

Step 7: Ensure that all the cupcakes a flat and level

I cut the peaks off all the cakes. I used a very sharp knife, and ensured that none of the cakes was higher than the edge of it’s case.

Embedded image permalink

Step 8: Glue the dress part of the cake onto the board

Using more icing glue, I then stuck the dress cupcakes onto the board.  It was important to leave the arms until after I’d frosted the dress otherwise the cape would have hung over them and get covered in icing.

Embedded image permalink

Step 9: Make ice-blue buttercream icing

At this point, I got my daugher’s Elsa dress down to ensure my buttercream frosting turned out roughly the right colour.  This was important because there would be tens of little Elsas in the room at the party and I didn’t want the cake to look anaemic or fluorescent in comparison to their party dresses.

Unfortunately, I totally under-estimated the volume of food colouring I would need to achieve the blue of the Elsa dress.  This is the result of buttercream after a whole bottle of blue food colouring. Not Elsa blue.

Embedded image permalink

So I had to go out and clear the shelf of blue colouring in Morrisons!!!  In the end I used 3 bottles of blue and three teaspoons of green for the dress (two thirds of the cake), and half a bottle of blue and 1 teaspoon of green for the arms (one third of the cake).

Embedded image permalink

Step 9: Pipe frosting onto the dress part of the cake

I used a piping bag and star shaped nozzle and swirled starting in the middle and working out.

Embedded image permalink

Unfortunately it turned out that I made way too much buttercream.  But I was able to use some of this to frost the leftover cupcakes (which we enjoyed very much that day and for days after the party).   Here’s what was left over!

Step 10: Create the Frozen fractal bodice

Using three different colours of blue Renshaw fondant icing, I created the fondant Frozen fractals for Elsa dress bodice. After rolling out the icing, I cut 1 cm wide strips of fondant, of roughly equal length, which I then also cut into thirds.

Embedded image permalink

I then placed the fondant fractals in slightly overlapping layers, starting at the bottom of the bodice and working my way to the top.  The colours were laid somewhat randomly, but I made sure that there was no large clusters of the same colour. It was a pretty exciting part of the cake decoration process, as once complete, I could really see that my cake was going to be very different from the rest.  It was now unique.

Embedded image permalink

The finishing, magical, touch to this step was creating the shimmer effect on the bodice.  I achieved this by painting the strips of fondant with pearlescent baby blue metallic food paint. I painted the duck egg strips entirely, and painted the edge only of the turquoise and baby blue fondant strips, to give the effect of light reflecting off the ice shards.

Embedded image permalink

Step 11: Place fondant snowflakes on the dress

The fondant snowflakes where taken out of hibernation and placed on the fondant swirls of the Elsa dress.

Embedded image permalink

Step 12: Add the cupcake arms, and decorate

I then added the remaining cupcakes across the top of the cake, to create the arms.  These were frosted with the light blue 1/3 of the buttercream icing, and then I placed the mini snowflakes on the arms.

Step 14: Dress the cake and add the message and candles

The final step was to close the cape, which I did with a single staple.  I hid this by placing a sparkly gem necklace across the top edge of the cape, which I glued on with water icing.

I then placed the Elsa tiara onto the top few cupcakes.

Finally I glued the “Happy birthday” message across the bottom of my board.

Just before presenting the cake I inserted five birthday cakes into the top five cakes.

Embedded image permalink

In total the cake took me about 5 hours.

After the candles were blown out, I took the cake away, pulled it apart and placed the individual cakes into cake pods.  These were then handed out to the party guests, together with their party favours, as they left the party.  No mess, no fuss!

Hope you like it.  I was quite pleased!

5 Frozen cupcake cakes as good as the princess dresses themselves

Since starting my Frozen Party Ideas blog, one of my favourite party ideas has been princess dress cupcake cakes.  So much so that I’ve also just made one for my own daughters birthday party, which was yesterday.

There’s a whole wardrobe of Frozen princess dresses you can model cupcake cakes on.  I’ve found five Frozen dress styles which have been turned into cakes.  Here below, are my favourite.  It’s a bit big headed, but one of them is mine!

 

Anna’s winter dress

Anna Frozen Dress

The key elements of Anna’s winter dress, which should appear on a cupcake cake, are the pink cloak and the flowers across the skirt.  There should also be a black bodice, with pattern and golden trim details.

Cupcake cake - Anna Frozen Dress

This Anna’s winter dress cupcake cake achieves all of the above.  It is unusual to use black frosting, but this cake is all the stronger for it.  I also love it that the arms are the minty green colour of the dress, which is normally hidden underneath the pink cloak.

Anna’s coronation day dress
Anna Frozen Coronation Dress

The key elements of Anna’s coronation dress, which should appear on a cupcake cake, are the two-tone green striped skirt, with flower detail, the black bodice with green cuffed shoulders and the golden tulip medallion.

Cupcake cake - Anna Frozen Coronation Dress

This Anna’s coronation dress cupcake cake achieves all of the above.  The green stripes of the skirt are the highlight of this cake, which is adorned with green ribbon to enhance the effect.  Gold frosting is used here for the bodice trim, and the pattern on the bodice has been pre-piped and placed on the black bodice.




 

Anna’s Frozen Fever dress

Anna Frozen Fever Dress

Anna’s Frozen Fever birthday dress is the most bright and cheerful of all the Frozen princess dresses, with the most unusual colour scheme.  The key elements of Anna’s sunflower dress, which should appear on a cupcake cake, are the large sunflower heads encircling the blue skirt, the black bodice with butterfly motive and the green and yellow tulip waistcoat.

 

Cupcake cake - Anna Frozen Fever Dress

This was the first Anna sunflower dress I found on the internet, and it’s gorgeous, but missing a few elements.  The large sunflower heads are certainly there, and the piping detail on them is fab.  The waistcoat is also there in green and yellow, but it’s missing the tulip detail.  The bodice is blue rather than black and the butterfly is missing.  Overall this is an amazing cake, I wish I had made, but there is room for improvement…

Elsa’s Classic Frozen Dress

Elsa Frozen Dress

The key elements of Elsa’s classic frozen dress, which should appear on a cupcake cake, are: the snowflake cape, the ice blue skirt, the bodice adorned with simmering ice fractals and white or very light blue arms.

Elsa dress cupcake cake 2 - Frozen party ideas

This is the cake I made for my daughter’s party this weekend, and after six months of research I think I nailed it.  The frozen fractal bodice is unique among all the Elsa dress cupcake cakes I have seen on the internet over the passed six months, but I’m hoping to kick off a trend!  I made the shimmering bodice using three different colours of fondant icing and I painted it with Metallic Pearlescent Baby Blue paint.




Elsa’s Frozen Fever dress

Elsa Frozen Fever Dress

 

Elsa’s summer dress is not a million miles away from her classic winter dress, but there are a few variations, which should appear on an Elsa’s Frozen Fever dress cupcake cake, which are: the pink flower cape, the ice blue skirt, the bodice adorned with simmering leaves and flowers and white and short shoulder cuff sleeves.

Cupcake cake - Elsa Frozen Fever Dress

 

This was the first Elsa Frozen Fever dress I found on the internet, and it’s gorgeous, but missing a few elements.  The pink flowers are certainly and these are placed very neatly and evenly across the bottom of the skirt.  Unfortunately there’s no actual cape, and the top half of the dress is not quite the right colour scheme (although I do like the white). Overall this is an amazing cake, I wish I had made, but there is room for improvement…

Ten Frozen balloon models you’ll wish you had for your Frozen-themed party

So, I’ve seen a few party entertainers twisting balloons in my time.  Yes, they keep the kids entertained and happy.  But, I had no idea how far the world of balloon modelling had come on and how amazing and extreme balloon models, decorations, sculptures and structures have started to become big status-symbols at parties.  None so more, of course, than at a Frozen party.  You’ve gotta have a Frozen Elsa balloon model at your party right?  Well how about an entire Frozen ice palace made of hundreds of balloons.

Feast you eyes on these ten Frozen balloon models you’ll wish you had for your Frozen party.  I’ll start at the simple end first, so as not to blow your mind.

 

1. Frozen balloons: Lovely little, single balloon, Frozen ice wand

So, this is the sort of thing you’d expect at a kids Frozen party, right?  Nice, simple, twisted in front of the kids, ready in an instant, something they can play with for a few minutes and then forget they had.  Pretty, sweet, inexpensive.

2. Frozen balloon: Elsa with sparkling ice cape

This was the first Elsa balloon model I found which had a Elsa ice cape accessory, and I fell in love with her instantly. I love that the cape is transparent, like the “real thing”, and shimmers in the light.  It’s either filled with glitter, or they are glitter balloons.  Either way, this is a stunning Elsa cape made from balloons!

3. Frozen balloons: Coronation day Anna

I love this princess Anna balloon model because of all the details carefully applied to her coronation day outfit.  All the elements are there:  coronation day hair up-do with hair clip, coronation day necklace and a stunning coronation day dress, with painted on details.  All with balloons people, it’s balloons!

4. Frozen balloons:  Elsa with braid and snowflake cape

This Elsa balloon model really looks like she has a friendly personality.  I love her hair braid, her coy smile and her real snowflake cape.  She’s really looking forward to the party and has brought some balloons along.

5. Frozen balloons:  Anna, with gold rimmed bodice

This Anna balloon model shows Anna in her blue skirt and black bodice.  I love the detail of the golden rim around the bodice. There’s just one detail missing: Anna’s lock of white hair in her plait isn’t there.

6. Frozen balloons: Elsa with woven ice cape of balloons

This Elsa balloon makes the list because of the chic Elsa cape, made of twisted and woven balloons.  It looks like a separate accessory, so perhaps it’s even removable.  I’d love to try it on!

7. Frozen balloons:  Floating Olaf in summer

I just love the creative thinking around this Olaf in summer balloon model.  “You’ve got a pool?  Great, balloon Olaf can float on it!” Check this guy out, chilled summer Olaf, with cocktail (including straw) and flower neck garland (which isn’t balloons unfortunately).

8. Frozen balloons:  Balloon arch with Elsa, Anna and Olaf

Okay, so by this point, you are all thinking that Elsa or Anna balloon models are easy!  Oh come on.  They are not. It’s just you’ve seen some amazing Frozen balloon models on this page!  Here’s another step up: an amazing balloon arch, with small and large snowflakes and Elsa, Anna and Olaf hosts welcoming you to the party.

9. Frozen balloons: Frozen fever sunflower cake

If you liked that balloon party entrance, how about this Frozen ever party entrance?  This one was modelled on Anna’s Frozen Fever sunflower cake.  I just love the white frosting loops, made from tightly knotted balloons.  And the sunflowers, just brilliant!

10. Frozen balloons: Elsa’s ice palace party entrance

There’s nothing like a first impression, but after seeing this balloon ice palace at the entrance of this party, you would expect to be entering the most amazing party of your life.  This balloon ice palace, complete with Elsa’s balcony, has to be the most elaborate Frozen balloon construction I’ve ever seen…

Frozen Elsa Entertainers for Frozen parties in the UK

If you are looking for a Elsa entertainer, Elsa look a like, or Elsa impersonator, the list below is basically as good as the Arendelle phone directory. The Frozen Party Ideas blog has endeavoured to collect as many UK-based Elsa Party Entertainers as possible and put them here, in one place. Some of these companies are larger party entertainment companies offering a full Frozen party experience via multiple princesses across multiple UK locations, others are smaller, one-Elsa-bands.  But this means there’s a wide selection of Frozen entertainers for you to choose from*.

If you have more names for the list, please contact me via the comments form below, or via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/FrozenPartyIdeas.
