Frozen Party Theme

29 Apr

Did I mention being a bit behind? Also a bit out of order? Although I just posted my son’s birthday cake for this year, his sister’s birthday was February 2nd but I haven’t shared her special cake….or should I say cakes.

Skyler really wanted to see the Broadway musical Matilda. Instead of a birthday party, she agreed to have two friends over to watch Frozen and have a mini-party.

Frozen 1The Frozen Cupcake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box of ice-cream sandwiches
  • 1 Wilton White Sugar Sheets Edible Decorating Paper
  • 1 Wilton Blue Sparkling Sugars
  • 1 Wilton White Pearlized Sugar Pearl Sprinkles 5oz
  • 2 tubs of White Frosting

Directions:

  1. Cut a ice-cream sandwich in half.Frozen cake
  2. Frost the top of one side and place the other side on top.  This will create a layer effect.
  3. frost the outside of the layered ice-cream sandwich.
  4. Place in the freezer.  Repeat until you have done all the ice-cream sandwiches this way.Frozen 2
  5. Freeze at least 1 hour before going to the next step.
  6. Frost the outside of each “frozen” cupcake once more.
  7. Sprinkle the top with Blue Sparkling Sugars and White Pearlized Sugar Pearl Sprinkles.
  8. Serve on light or aqua blue plates.

 

Frozen DrinkThe Frozen Float

Ingredients:

  • 1 carton of vanilla ice-cream
  • 1 blue colored juice (Note:  If you wish to avoid “bad colors” you can color white grape or apple juice with natural blue dye from Color Garden or another natural food color.)

Directions:

  1. Place 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream into a clear glass.  (I used plastic wine glasses.)
  2. Pour blue juice over the ice-cream.
  3. Serve on white plates with white spoons.

Now you are ready to pop some popcorn, slide Frozen into the Blu-Ray, and watch 3 8-year-olds sing through the entire movie.

The Family Cake

Frozen main cakeWe live in the same town with a lot of our family.  Both of my sisters live here with their families and my parents live here as well.  Family birthday cake time is a big production in our family.  Skyler has wanted 1 cake for the last year.  She saw this cake 2 weeks after her last birthday and never forgot it.  There is a bakery one town over called Carousel Cakes.  They sell a wonderful Blue Velvet Cake accented with silver pearls and sugar snowflake.  I used Wilton Blue Ready-To-Use Icing to write on the cake.

The Blue Velvet Cake is unique because it is vanilla.  My mom is allergic to chocolate so this is a nice change of pace from red velvet.   They also come in cupcake form.

Huge bonus:   They ship nationwide so you don’t need to live here to enjoy them.  Check their site out because they have amazing cakes of all kinds including a Pink Velvet Cake during the month of October with a $1 of the purchase going to breast cancer research.  Their Red Velvet Cake is apparently one of Oprah’s favorites that they renamed it:  Oprah Red Velvet Cake.

Matilda

MatildaAs for Matilda and our Girl’s Night in Times Square, Skyler had a blast. We browsed through a few stores before eating at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company which, sadly, I felt was WAY overrated.  Shrimp should not really be almost clear.  At the theatre, I experienced massive sticker shock when we bought 2 ordinary-sized candies, a water, and an apple juice which totaled $24.  The play itself was wonderful and amusing.  Skyler said she was fighting herself not to sing along with the kids.
