Well, the Disney Frozen cake requests have begun! A dear friend requested this cake for her little gal's 6th birthday. Just in case you've been living under a rock (I had been until yesterday), this is Olaf, the lovable snowman character from the movie. Since my boys have had a vehement disinterest in watching the movie, I went ahead and watched it with my younger daughter yesterday and thought it was actually pretty good! One of my boys even snuck out to watch the first half (and then returned to his legos, singing "Let it Go!" LOL!) Anyway, this cake is my usual buttercream with fondant decorations and various sizes of sprinkles.

What's better than one Tinkerbell birthday cake? Two! What a magical experience. I googled around to see how other decorators have interpreted the tinkerbell cake phenom, and I found a design very similar to this one I used. The actual cake is iced in purple and blue buttercream, and Tinkerbell and the flowers were made from fondant a few days prior. For the flowers, I took the plunge and ordered some cute plunger cutters. They were half the price than the local cake supply store, and well worth the money. I wish I had purchased these ages ago! And with lots of colors and cutters to choose from, one can get quite carried away -- especially while watching figure skating. :)

Anyway, this little beauty was for a friend's bridal shower. It's a 10" square golden yellow cake with raspberry whipped cream filling. The exterior is iced and decorated with vanilla buttercream. I really love doing the "lace" look on cakes. It takes a little longer but alleviates so much stress. In other words, I don't have to spend forever trying to get the icing perfectly smooth, because the lace piping goes over it and really transforms the look.

Inside we have yellow cake with strawberries and cream-- her favorite! Nine-inch round.
A few weeks later, I received another Minnie Mouse request! The second time around is always a little more fun! :)
