Elsa Frozen Birthday Cake


Frozen Elsa Birthday Cake

I made this cake for by daughter's fourth birthday! I did two layers of 6 inch rounds and 1 layer of a 4 inch round. I used 1 cake recipe found here on my blog and used two batches of my cream cheese decorator frosting found here on my blog. 

For the snowflakes I melted vanilla almond bark and piped it with the smallest round tip I had onto wax paper over snowflake clip art I printed out, then let it harden. (See pictures below)

For the blue ice glass I used a simple sucker recipe with blue food coloring. I poured it onto a silpat lined baking sheet, let it harden, then cracked it with a hammer. (See pictures below)

The blue pearls are sugar pearls I got at Hobby Lobby. 
If I were to make it again I would have not used the silver sprinkles but would have put crushed blue sugar ice glass on the top instead! Live and learn ;)

Candy Ice Glass Recipe
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup light corn syrup
Flat pan
Silicon baking mat
A candy thermometer
Optional: food coloring/flavored syrup

1.    Line your pan with aluminum foil.
2.    In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, pour in the sugar.
3.    Add in the water and stir continuously.
4.    Add the light corn syrup. Keep a constant stir going until the candy thermometer reads 300 degrees F. Add or two drops of food coloring and stir in.
5.    Quickly pour out the mixture onto the baking mat lined pan. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes.
6. Crack with hammer or back of knife
