Elsa doll cake

image

When I look at this cake the words “never” and “again” spring to mind. It probably would’ve been a lot easier had I had enough fondant to roll it out slightly thicker. As it happened I didn’t, and the result was that the skirt kept splitting, so under that white cape is actually a complete mess, hence there aren’t any pictures of the icing process. My hands were too sticky and my head to stressy to think about pics! Anyway,  here’s the link to the tutorial I was following, although you’ll notice the end results are pretty different due to the icing saga! I used three quantities of a basic Victoria sponge recipe and baked two in round springform tins and the third in a Pyrex bowl.

Carve a hole out using a knife

Stick Elsa in up to her hips.

Shave bits off the cake to create a skirt shape.

Cover in buttercream and chill for an hour.

At this point the disasters started so I’m afraid the next pic I have is this one…

I used flower paste to make the cape, and royal icing for the snow and snowflakes. The main thing is that the little one loved it!

Here’s what it looked like inside:
