Frozen Light Up Castle Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Hayley P.
This castle cake was really straight forward to do. I initially baked a 6″ round cake and a 10″ round cake and covered them both with white fondant. I placed the 10″ cake on a board, inserted some dowels for support, and stacked the 6″ cake on top.
Next, I used the Wilton castle set, in which, it provides a template for the fondant needed to cover the turrets (this also applies to the door and main tower on the centre of the cake). I covered my turrets and then sprayed them with an edible silver spray to give them a bit of sparkle. I used royal icing to set the towers where I wanted them and then again, used royal icing to stick my turrets to the towers.
To decorate, I used a snowflake cookie cutter and cut out snowflakes from fondant and then dusted them within edible glitter. I used a bunting silicone mould for the name and stuck mini flowers around the bottom of the top cake to hide the seam. I used some Frozen figurines and placed them in the cake, and used blue sparkles scattered at the bottom of the cake. The tiny white snowflakes are made from rice paper that I purchase online. That is basically it – really straightforward but really effective.
I did try to be slightly innovative with this cake by putting mini led lights in my cake board. We brought four white led lights. My husband drilled 4 x 6 mm holes into the drum. He secured the lights in the board then jointed all cables into a joint box and fitted the wires to the base of the board.To power the lights we just attached a 9 volt battery and voila! If the battery was permanently connected it would get approximately 8 hours of battery life, but I just connected the battery as and when we needed it.
The cake was an absolute hit, and I have to say, it’s probably one of my favorites that I have made!
Castle Cake Inspired by the Disney Movie Frozen
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Donna S. Starkey
A special little girl named Shea loves the movie “Frozen” and she especially loves Elsa The Snow Queen, so she asked if I could make her a castle cake using the ice blues and teal colors from Elsa’s dress.
The bottom layer and second layer were square cakes. I cut each corner so the towers would fit snug against the cake. The top layer is round cake. I used wooden dowel rods to hold the cake layers in place.
PVC Pipe Towers and Cardboard Ice Peaks:
Next I used PVC plastic pipe for the large four towers. I covered it with white fondant that had been pressed with stone pattern impression mats. The four smaller towers I used the inner core within the paper towel; same procedure as above.
The cardboard cones were purchased at Craft 2000 store. I simply made my marshmallow fondant and colored to match Elsa’s dress color. Once the fondant was placed on the cones, I rolled them in sugar.
To make “edible snow” I used a bag of coconut and spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Baked in the oven at 150 degrees for 10 minutes. Once cooled, I used food processor to chop coconut into very fine pieces. The fine coconut was used for snow to cover the small trees on the side of the castle.
A Castle Begins:
Now I put the pieces together – stacking the cakes on top of each other. I used wooden dowel rods to hold the layers together. I also used royal icing to hold the towers into place against the cakes. Small pieces of white fondant were shaped into stones. These were placed around the cakes for fillers.
Hard candy was made to match the colors of the cake theme and placed throughout the cake for an icy look. Ice peaks are also being added. The castle door is cardboard, covered in fondant. Later you’ll see the letter “S” made from fondant placed on the door. This represents Shea’s last name.
Using my air sprayer, I lightly covered the cake with the ice blue colors.
At this point all the peaks are in place, the letter “S” has been added to the door, and I have added the word “FROZEN” to the upper level of the cake. I also made a large shape of hard candy in front of the castle. I cut out of fondant the saying “Happy Birthday Shea” and placed on this shape while it was still warm but firm.
This cake was so much fun to create and one little girl named Shea was very happy with her “Frozen” castle!
Fabulously Ornate Frozen Cake

My granddaughter Layla was turning 4 and had decided she wanted a Frozen cake as I’m sure just about every little girl her age wants. I told her whatever she wanted I would make it for her. Layla’s only requirement was that it most definitely had to have castle stairs. As luck would have it, her mom (my daughter Bethany) didn’t want a castle cake so I set out to make the most amazing Frozen cake I possibly could. This cake received so many oohs and ahhs that I was amazed. From start to finish I had the best time making this cake. I used hidden pillars on the top tier and I made ice shards from candy flavored with watermelon and cinnamon. This cake was a dream come true for Layla.
I baked eight vanilla cakes for Layla’s dream cake and embellished the final product with gum paste snowflakes, edible glitter and candy mini snowflakes. The cake was finished with the Frozen characters purchased by my daughter. Aside from those characters, everything on the cake was edible and was the talk of the party.
The stairs were a bit difficult as they were made from cake and covered with fondant but I believe the end result was stunning.
- As always I baked all the cakes first.
- I then made all the buttercream and fondant.
- The candy shards were made on the first day and the cakes and buttercream on the second day.
- On the third day I leveled all the cakes and crumb-coated all of them to prepare them for fondant.
- I spent the next 12 hours making gum paste snowflakes and decorating this beautiful cake.
- As I said earlier, the stairs were the most difficult part of making this cake. After crumb coating the bottom tier I cut into the side of the cake to attach the stairs.
- My granddaughter’s name was written on an ice chard and placed on the only turret on the cake at the top with a battery powered light underneath it.
I’m sure I could replicate this cake. It was my original design and I don’t think I’ve had as much fun making any other cake. This cake was made with all the love in my heart for my little Layla.
Frozen Inspired Birthday Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Brenda B.
I had a wonderful time making this FROZEN inspired birthday cake for a precious 4-year-old. The best part ‘EVER’ was the ‘WOW’ on her face – priceless!
- The cake board is covered with fondant, sculpted for snow drifts and then airbrushed pearl.
- Poured directly on the fondant is an isomalt turquoise pond.
- Fondant trees were made with a base of foil, covered in fondant and then snipped upwards with small scissors.
- Adding to a frilly look is ribbon from Wal-Mart.
- The final touches to the board were FROZEN inspired hand-sculpted fondant figurines, Sven and Olaf.
- 10” round/5” tall cake was covered in LMF (marshmallow) fondant, using the marbling technique, and topped with fondant icicles.
- A Sculpted RKT, fondant marbling technique, is the base for the isomalt ice castle.
- A FROZEN inspired hand-sculpted fondant Elsa is inviting the guests to the ice castle.
- And to take this design ‘over the top’ the isomalt ice castle was a tutorial taken from a class with Artisan Cakes, Elizabeth Marek.
Frozen Themed Castle Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Ashley F.
My daughter recently turned 7 years old. She’s in love with the movie, Frozen, as is the rest of the world. This was the most fun I’ve ever had making a cake. Though it was my very first castle cake, it came out great!
- The cake was Funfetti (2 9″x13″ and 2 8″x8″ rounds, trimmed).
- The icing was Classic White, which I made a light blue color and darkened for the accents.
- I made the towers with cake and sugar cones.
- I dipped all of the cones in vanilla candy coating.
- The sugar cones I coated in sugar sprinkles- but, I learned a lesson after the first one. I had to let them cool a bit before rolling them in the sprinkles. The candy coating on the first sugar cone was still too warm. It just clumped up with the sugar sprinkles and fell off. It was a mess. So, I dipped another one and let all of them cool until they were just tacky. The process went smoothly after that. Some of them dried with bumpy areas, but it was no big deal.
- To assemble the towers, I just used white icing as glue.
- To add flair, I used snowflake sugar charms, Sixlet pearls, blue sugar sprinkles, blue and white snowflake sprinkles for around the base, a white chocolate bar, which I cut and shaped for the door, and characters from the movie (which my daughter can now play with).
All in all, it was a blast and I got so many compliments that I lost count. I even had someone ask how much I would charge to make one for her daughter’s birthday. All that matters is that my daughter was super excited about it and said she loved it. It was a happy birthday!
Coolest Disney’s Frozen Castle Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Regina A.
This castle cake is a design that I came up for my daughter’s frozen themed birthday party. For this cake I purchased the Wilton castle kit, rock candy and frozen figurines to place on the cake. The bottom layer is a made from a double layer hexagon shaped cake and the 2nd tier is 3 round 6″ cakes.
I piped the butter cream over the cake with light blue and white frosting in the bag. For the cones on the tower I dipped them in candy melt then placed it on top of the tower. I spooned extra candy melt over to make it have a drizzled look over the towers. To finish the cake off, I added rock candy of 3 different shades to add around the cake to look like ice.
Frozen Pull Apart Cupcake Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Ayanna J.
I made this for my nieces 2nd birthday, it was my first cupcake cake and everyone loved it. I used 30 cupcakes, half chocolate and half white and also used rhinestone mesh for the waist belt and bought the crown and wand.
Next, I covered my cake board with foil and applied icing under each cupcake. I filled in the spaces between the cupcakes and then iced them. I used blue edible sugar sprinkles that made the cake shine beautifully. It was a huge hit and I can’t wait to make another one!
Light Up Frozen Birthday Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Sarah F.
This Frozen cake was an easy one for me to make. My niece was absolutely insistent that her cake have lights on it, so I found some on eBay and ordered them. That had me sweating for a bit because I had forgotten to change my address. Because of the error, the lights ended up coming just a couple of days before I was to leave to visit my niece for her birthday. LOL!
- I baked the cakes the night before I needed them.
- I also made the snow topper for the glass globe.
- The snowflake on top of the globe was an ornament I found at the Dollar Store.
- The next day, I put all of the pieces together.
- I iced and stacked the two cakes.
- I placed Elsa and Olaf figures on the top tier under the glass globe. It took a couple of tries with Olaf because he kept falling over.
- Anna and Sven figures were added to the second tier along with blue candles.
- The lights I used are fairy lights and they worked wonderfully.
- The snowflake decorations were felt stickers I bought at the craft store.
The look on my niece’s face when she came downstairs was priceless and it was a big hit with everyone at the party!
Frozen Olaf Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Arlene W.
This is a Frozen Olaf Cake and Cupcake tower I made for my granddaughters 7th birthday.
The cake and cupcakes were made with a recipe I found online that was a boxed cake mix enhanced with additional ingredients. The buttercream recipe was off the Wilton website. The vanilla sugar cookies were also made with a Wilton recipe. The marshmallow fondant was homemade. The cake was three 6″ layers covered in buttercream, then decorated with ruffles that were made by cutting fondant circles approximately 1 1/2″ diameter out of fondant rolled 1/8″ thick. The circles were then pushed in the center and pinched to form a ruffle. They were left to dry overnight then I cut the pinched end off a bit and pushed them into the buttercream as close together as possible.
The fondant was tinted in several colors to try and create an hombre effect, darker on the bottom to lighter on the top. I then steamed the cake and sprinkled it with sparkling sugar. The topper was just a purchased stuffed Olaf and a foam letter from the craft store. The cupcake picks were purchased off Etsy and I hand cut the cupcake wrappers from scrapbooking cardstock.
The cookies were decorated with fondant over a thin layer of buttercream and also steamed then sprinkled with sparkling sugar. Hope you like it!

Beautiful Elsa Doll Frozen Birthday Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Melissa C.
My 6 year old granddaughter, found a Frozen Cake tutorial, on YouTube. She would show it to me over and over. Asking if it was too hard for me to make. I always said it was too hard, because I had never decorated a cake before and didn’t even have any cake decorating tools.
When her 7th Birthday was a week away, she showed it to me again, and asked if I would make it. I told her yes, but only if she helped me. She was excited and said she didn’t care what it looked like, she wanted it for her Birthday Cake. So I bought a couple of cake mixes and looked up how to make Cake icing.
She helped every step of the way. I used plastic baggies with the tip cut off, to pipe the snowflakes and dress trim. The cake turned out great. It was a big hit at the Birthday party.
Everyone love it, especially the Birthday girl! The prize money would come in handy to buy cake decorating tools, so we could enjoy decorating more cakes together. Thanks for the consideration!
Frozen Elsa Cake
Frozen birthday cake submitted by Jennifer
My daughter, like many, wanted an Frozen Elsa cake for her birthday and I did not want to disappoint so I made her one. The instructions are easy and I encourage you to give it a try.
- I made 3 round cakes.
- I coloured two cakes (one aqua blue and one dark blue) and layered them. This creates a look that is very pretty when you cut into the cake.
- Decorating was simple as well. I started frosting the cake with the lightest colour and then added the medium and darker blues into the piping bag as the frosting was running out. This made the blues blend and gave a nice fading effect.
- Rock candy was added on top to represent Elsa’s ice castle.
- I added an Elsa doll to top to complete the look and I was done!
Hope you like it.
