Frozen is the new Disney film that came out last winter, it’s full of snow and ice and a funny snowman….so you can imagine my joy when my daughter wanted a Frozen party for her birthday….in July! Not only that but one of the hottest Julys in my memory! Has it been hotter than 1976? ahem, yes I do remember that far back and my little leather look hotpants!
So, off to Pinterest I trotted and found a whole host of Frozen party ideas. Then I decided that I wasn’t clever enough/creative enough and decided to come up with my own ideas.
The cake I did find inspiration for, but I have been having a bit of a lost mojo moment with my cake decorating lately. I decided to make it easy on myself and grab my daughter an extra birthday present in the process and I bought the figures on Ebay. The cake itself was two tiers of chocolate deliciousness, you just can’t beat a moist chocolate cake. I was desperately trying to find a sugar thermometer that didn’t cost as much as the entire pack of figures so I could make the ‘ice’ but then my local cake shop man…Thanks Richard from Love Cake Supplies…gave me a great idea. I bought a bag of Foxes Glacier Mints and placed them on tin foil on a baking tray. I baked them at a medium temp and kept an eye on them until they melted, about 5 mins. They came out as a flat sheet of minty candy which I left to cool and then broke up to make into ice shards for my cake. So much easier than making your own sugar candy.
Boo told me she had a fantastic day, and we couldn’t have wished for nicer weather for a garden party.
