If you noticed a lot of Elsa trick-or-treaters this year, you might understand why we’ve been getting a lot of custom cake orders that are designed around the hit Disney movie, Frozen. Princess Elsa is definitely the star of that movie and little girls all over the world love her for her independence and bravery.
For the second entry in this series, we did something pretty special. Not only do we have a sketch to share, but also process shots of a beautiful birthday cake we made inspired by the Disney film, Frozen.
Our client wanted Princess Elsa on her birthday cake, so we first had to choose an image of Elsa to use as a starting point. We thought this one was perfect - we think it totally embodies Elsa’s determination and defiance:
Next, we sketched out a basic design of the cake, which had the wow factor while still not putting too much of a dent in our client’s budget. Our sketch below shows the positioning of Elsa on the top of cake, as well as lots of wintry elements - hand-piped snowflakes as well as snowflake sprinkles, snow banks, icicles, and the blue color palate of the cake.
