Let it go!

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.

I love cats, and I love cake, so I loved making this cake!  This dear friend has a couple of cute kitties I wanted to include in this birthday celebration. So I made the cats, their cake and the uninvited mouse friend from fondant a few days before.  For the cat whiskers I used cut pieces of Wilton flower stamens… and they were puurfect!  This was also the first time I plastered the sides of a cake with sprinkles, and I have to say I rather like the turnout.. looks like I'm going to be pushing more and more sprinkles on my kids these next few rounds of birthdays!

Cake details: 12" round chocolate cake filled with whipped cream and sliced cherries.
Fondant decorations and traditional sprinkles.
