[irp posts=”2037″ name=”How to Help: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals & $25 Walmart GC Giveaway”]Our oldest celebrated her seventh (!!) birthday on Sunday and wanted nothing more than to feel like Princess Elsa for a day. Since it was Father’s Day weekend too, I wanted to make the preparations as easy as possible for the hubby. He usually does all of the cooking and baking, but I thought that I would try my hand at making a special (inspired by the movie of course) Frozen birthday cake for our special girl.
I’m sure you’ve seen pictures floating around the internet of elaborate princess cakes made to look like a doll’s skirt (with the actual doll sticking out of the top!) They’re absolutely stunning– but way beyond my skill level. I decided to use box cake mix and create a marbled surprise inside, and coat the outside with blue frosting and M&Ms– much more manageable, but it would still a princess-worthy cake!
Here’s what I used for my Frozen Birthday Cake:
- One box of white cake mix
- Blue food coloring
- One can white whipped frosting
- Blue accent frosting (I used this Betty Crocker Easy Flow Icing)
- Blue M&Ms
- White chocolate chips
STEP ONE: Prepared the cake mix according to directions on the box.
STEP TWO: Pour one cup of batter into a small mixing bowl. Add blue food coloring to this small bowl until the batter is your desired shade of blue.
STEP THREE: Pour regular batter into two Round Cake Pans.
STEP FOUR: Pour blue batter into cake pans in a swirly pattern. Use a butter knife to slowly stir until the blue batter is spread throughout.
STEP FIVE: Bake according to directions on box. Allow cake to fully cool before frosting. (I used the entire can of white whipped frosting).
STEP SIX: Add your decorations! I picked out all of the blue M&Ms from two baking-sized bags (I served the extras in a bowl at the party, so they definitely didn’t go to waste!) I pressed the blue M&Ms and white chocolate chips into the sides of the cake like so:
STEP SEVEN: I used blue accent icing to decorate the top and write Happy Birthday. The result was a Frozen birthday cake fit for a princess!
