|My minimal-stress Elsa Frozen birthday cake|
My daughter loves Frozen so a Frozen birthday theme was a must this year, along with an Elsa Frozen Birthday cake. Making a child's birthday cake is a time consuming task, but I have such fond memories looking back at my cakes in the family photo album that I want the same for my children. But I am always looking to minimize the stress as much as possible. So here is my minimal-stress Elsa Frozen birthday cake. Notice that I didn't say easy?! I don't think something that you do so infrequently and with so much at stake could ever be easy, but it can be made easier!
I've made this Elsa birthday cake minimal-stress by sourcing a doll from a local toy shop that I was happy to cut the legs off (if need be), taking a trip to the supermarket first to see what decorations were readily available rather than wasting time hunting down hard to find decorations, and using balls at the bottom of the skirt to hide any messy joins between the icing and the cake-board. I've also stayed away from using ready-to-roll icing for the bodice to limit the types of icing I needed to work with (and colour).

My little girl adored this cake - I hope yours does too!
