Making the cake was a "piece of cake". I just used a white boxed cake mix and added a little blue food coloring into it. I baked the cake mix into two 8 inch rounds and cut a large circle out of one of the rounds, stacked the cakes on top of each other and filled the top round with vanilla ice cream. I covered the cake with plastic wrap and put it into the freezer until it was time to add the icing and decorations. I also kept the cut out circle and wrapped it up and kept it to use as a little cake for Syd to decorate and add birthday candles. I made this cake a few days in advance.
An hour or so before supper I pulled the cake from the freezer and covered it with a simple buttercream icing. I pulled out the blue ice candies that I had made a few days ago and gathered up (and washed) Syd's Disney Frozen toys to use for decoration
Sydney placed the characters on the cake where she wanted them to be and added the blue ice candies all around the sides of the cake. I placed the bigger pieces of blue ice candy on the top. It turned out great!
I quickly iced the small little round cake and Sydney covered the top with LOTS of sprinkles. She placed the nine candles in the little cake and we put the Frozen cake back into the freezer until after supper.
When we cut into the cake, there was the yummy surprise, ICE CREAM!
This cake project was a blast for the both of us. She loved her special cake!
