Elsa Cake {Frozen}

I got to make my very first doll cake!!

When I was little, I remember my mom making doll cakes for my birthday, so I’ve always wanted to make one (difficult as a mother of boys!)

Lucky for me, my friend’s daughter requested an Elsa doll cake for her 4th birthday!

After spontaneously breaking out in “Let It Go” over the course of a week, it was time to get to work.

Here are a few Elsa process shots, as she gets a fondant mini dress and then a lovely Rich Chocolate Cake skirt.

The trickiest part of the cake was her translucent cape.  

The solution came from Cakes ROCK!, who modified Imaginarium Cake’s gelatin technique to make a sheer cape.  I placed a fondant pale teal cape, imprinted with snowflakes (I used a clean rubber stamp) to give the detailing of Elsa’s cape. 

Then the gelatin cape gave it a sheer, sparkly look.  I made my cape on a silicone baking mat, so I ended up with a bit of texture and beading which I loved!  Doesn’t it look like icicles on the edges?

With an Elsa this pretty, I feel it’s perfectly all right to belt out a few verses of “Let It Go!”
