Hey guys! So for todays post I am going to show you the birthday cake that I made for my younger cousin, Nathan's, birthday.
Nathan has been loving the Frozen CD lately and when my Aunt asked if I could make an Olaf themed cake, I jumped at the opportunity as I am a bit of a Frozen lover myself.
Instead of making a traditional circular cake, with an Olaf figure on top… I decided to make my life hard and create an actual Olaf cake. This cake was inspired by the scene where his head falls off and also by cakes I came across on Pintrest.
Although it may look hard, it was actually easier than expected. After carving the (blue) cake I had baked the day before, I simply butter creamed it for a crumb coat, and cover it in fondant icing for a traditional birthday cake finish.
After that I could simply let my creative side go wild with (baking) coloured powders, icing shapes, sugar paper snowflakes and twigs! Of course!
I am super proud of how this turned out and I am happy to report that my cousin LOVED the cake and that it tasted just as delicious as it looked!
I would love to see other peoples bakes so feel free to leave links in the comments!
Thanks for reading!
