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
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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
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.
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’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.
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…
