At Home - Baking Up A Frozen Storm

Wow what a week!!! Lots of baking and cake decorating around the place last week. With our 'Little lady' turning the big FOUR. We had to make cupcakes AND a cake. They all had to be the Disney FROZEN theme (of course, what else! right?). Alba is a mad fan, as most kids her age are. I seriously don't remember there being such a big Disney film like this when I was a kid, but then again I wasn't the Princess type (total tomboy I was). 

Anyways I thought I would just share some pictures of our baking week and a little run down on the cake.


















If you're inspired by this cake for your little one's birthday, it's pretty easy if you have made a cake or two before. I mean I've never done a cake decorating class, I've just been making cakes for my kids and their cousins. 

I used this recipe for the cake White Chocolate Mud Cake.This is a fantastic website, they give you step by step recipe instructions + pictures as you go. Makes it so much easier to follow. This cake always turns out so moist, sweet and I never have a piece leftover. (I made two and stacked them, so it was big enough for 20 people)

As for the icing and decorations, I chose to use fondant but you could use buttercream or totally cheat and use some ready-to-use frosting. I also used fondant with the snowflakes and bordering at the bottom of the cake. I made the snowflakes using a cookie cutter. 
  
The little meringues.....I cheated and bought those from Woolworths....(shhh!).    

After a small amount of panic in locating some mini Frozen characters, because I left that part to the last minute thinking there would be a thousand in stock around town... whoops! I finally managed to locate some and sent the kids and hubby to the toy store. 

So, along with little Elsa, Anna and Olaf, I just used some plastic snowflakes that I found during this seasons Christmas sales at the $2 shop. I was going to put the snowflakes in a small round bowl I had and put it on the cake upside down so it looked like a snow globe but the cake just wasn't big enough. I used a 20cm tin, if you use the next size up, that idea would work a treat. 

Add few silver-ball decorations and you're done. I think the hardest part is rolling out the fondant. Mine wasn't perfect but thats the beauty of the snowflakes.... they cover up the dodgy parts ;)

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).


Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
