The Frozen Party to end all Frozen Parties

My daughter has just turned four and has a teeny tiny obsession with the movie Frozen…OK I may be underestimating that just a bit…she’s seriously obsessed. I’m not usually into the whole princess Disney thing, but I can endure this movie as it is about the love between two sisters and not some stupid Prince Charming story…yeah, like that’s realistic sweetheart!

Anyway, I agreed to hold a Frozen birthday party with all the trimmings to make her day special…cause she’s special to me…aww 😌

The Cake

My daughter loves my chocolate mud cake with ganache (you can find the recipe here), so that was the basis of her birthday cake. I bought some cheap Elsa, Anna and Olaf figurines ($2 each); a glittery number four and some snowflake cutters.

After I assembled the cake layers (8 inch and 5 inch layers) and covered it in chocolate ganache, I covered both the bottom and top tiers in sky blue fondant. I circled the base of both tiers with a white fondant band and started to cover the cake in snowflake cut outs.

I actually made the snowflakes a week beforehand, so that they could harden (for those of you into cake decorating, I didn’t use tylose powder). I made them in white and pale blues. I added a silver sugar pearl in the centre of the larger sized snowflakes.

Adding the snowflakes was easy. I just dabbed the back of each snowflake with glycerine (flower glue), placed them gently on the cake, and they stayed in place thankfully. Into the fridge overnight and then I finished the cake by adding some sparkly edible glitter and four sparklers.

Frozen themed party food

Apart from the usual sausage rolls, sandwiches and fruit platters, I found some cute ideas on Pinterest to add ‘Frozen food’ to the menu. I made frozen hearts by covering strawberries in white chocolate and sprinkles.

I made Olaf snowballs by coating white marshmallows in white chocolate and more sprinkles.

I made Kristoff and Sven sleighs by adding four Smarties to the side of mini Milky Ways and inserting a Tiny Teddy biscuit in the middle. I used melted chocolate to stick the Smarties to the sides. So cute!

Finally, I make hot chocolate spoons to give away to everyone who came to the party to ‘unfreeze a frozen heart’. Hot chocolate spoons are so easy to make. Just place melted chocolate (I used dark chocolate) in a dessert spoon and sprinkle with a few mini marshmallows or other types of sprinkles. Place them in the fridge for 10 minutes and they are ready to use. Stir them through a small cup of hot milk until the chocolate has fully melted.

Decorations and games

Who knew that a streamer covered trampoline can couple as Queen Elsa’s frozen palace…so convenient and bouncy too!

Instead of the traditional pin the tail on the donkey party game, I made a pin the carrot nose on Olaf game!

By adding blue balloons, streamers and pom poms the Frozen themed party was complete.

Princess Miss Four was delighted and had a wonderful time at the party. Thankfully I only need to do this once a year…I’m exhausted.
