Frozen Cake with Olaf Topper and Matching Set of Cupcakes
I made this Frozen cake with Olaf topper for a 3-year-old girl some time back. The mom requested for a Frozen cake with Anna and Elsa’s images on it, and she also requested for a matching set of cupcakes to go with the cake and wanted all to be displayed on a cupcake holder. I did not have any cupcake holders to rent out to her and suggested that I make one instead. The mom was very receptive to the idea and so I set on making the cake. And the cupcake holder.
Fondant extruder tool
– I used fondant extruder to make the white frame around Anna and Elsa’s image on the side of the cake as well as the cake border. I used 2 different discs for this project, one which is a round circle disc (for the cake border) and the other a 3 holes combined disc (not sure how to describe the pattern but the image of the disc I as as shown below).
Edible Image – I used edible images on both the cake and cupcakes. The images were provided by my customer and I merely resized them and sent them for printing from a local edible image printing vendor.
Muffin casings – there were medium sized ones and I used them to bake my cupcakes.
Snowflakes plunger cutter
– This is a set of snowflakes cutters of the same pattern but in different sizes. I used these to make the 2D and 3D snowflakes on the cake.
– I used lollipop sticks for the cupcakes toppers with the initial “M”.
Round scalloped cutters
– These were used them to cover the cupcakes as well as to make the cupcake picks that has the initial “M” on them.
I also made the Olaf topper and the number ‘3’ topper ahead of time.
For the cupcakes, once baked and cooled, I leveled the tops (for those that were domed). And then I applied a thin layer of buttercream coating.
I then used my scalloped round cutters and cut out round fondant pieces in white and turquoise and placed them on my buttercream covered cupcakes. And then I attached edible images on some cupcakes and 3D standing snowflakes on some. The others had flat 2D snowflakes on them.
As for the cake, once baked and cooled, I leveled, filled and crumb coated it with buttercream. And then I covered it with turquoise fondant.
And then, I attached the Anna and Elsa's edible image on the front side of the cake. To frame the image, I used my extruder tool which was fitted with a three combined holes disc to pipe out a long strip of fondant. I then twisted the strip gently to form the rope like finishing. I attached it to the cake using fondant glue (since it was on the side of the cake and the fondant frame was kind of heavy, I used fondant glue so that the frame sticks securely on the cake).
As for the top of the cake, I rolled some white fondant and cut out a large circle using my scalloped cutter. And then, I used one of my piping tips (with medium sized round opening) and cut out tiny holes in each scallop for a lace like effect. I then attached the white fondant cut out to the top of the cake with shortening.
Next, I attached Olaf and the number ‘3’ topper on the cake. And finally, I completed the deco on the cake with fondant snowflakes. Some were laid flat on the cake while some were made into 3D fondant snowflakes (to make them into 3D snowflakes, I cut out 2 pieces of snowflakes and glued them together with a toothpick in between. I used fondant glue to stick these and positioned the toothpick such that half of it was showing out so that I could poke it into the cake to help the snowflakes stand straight).
Frozen Cake with Olaf Topper and Cupcakes
To present the cake and cupcakes, I placed the cake and the
cupcakes on my handmade cake and cupcake holder. The cake went on the top most
tier and the cupcakes were arranged such that those with 2D deco on them went
on the second tier while all those with 3D picks went on the lowest tier
(combined with edible image cupcakes).
Since the cake was rather small, I added the ‘Happy
Birthday’ message on the cupcake holder. The letters were cut out of fondant
using the same alphabet cutter I used to cut out the initial “M” for the
And that was how I decorated this Frozen cake with
Olaf topper and the matching Frozen themed cupcakes.
