'Frozen' Snowflake Birthday Cake

Frozen movie inspired birthday cake

Missy is turning 5 and as the movie Frozen is all the rage I decided to do a snowflake this year as the birthday cake (and tried to do something easier than years' past, see birthday cake age 1, age 2, age 3, age 4 which it appears I did not upload the photos last year but I made a Chicken 3D standing cake).

Snowflake design -origami
What you need:
Vanilla Packet mix 
Blue Food Dye
Silver Hundreds & Thousands and Silver Pearls

Snowflake design -Silver Hundreds & Thousands
  1. Follow cake instructions and add as much blue food dye as needed or alternatively leave vanilla
  2. Make a snowflake design using paper cut to the circle of the tin, using an origami method to get the design (fold paper and cut, unfold. Tip: Keep design simple and make approx 1cm wide.
  3. Make icing to instructions and add blue dye -ice cake.
  4. Place paper lightly over iced cake (alternatively wax proof paper would be better than photocopy paper)
  5. Sprinkle Hundreds & Thousands over iced cake before icing hardens push down lightly so that they stick. Unpeel design.
  6. Add sugar large silver pearls for added decoration-push in place.
Note: In the finished picture above you can see some white powder -I tried to make the non snowflake area like snow using icing sugar but this just covered the silver balls that is why the final design has the large balls as the main design.
