For my daughters 6th Birthday we were consumed with all things Frozen. At the time there just wasn't any Frozen themed party supplies out but I was okay with creating our own style to capture her special day. I like to keep things simple and sometimes I find when companies make themed party supplies I tend to throw everything and anything into my cart only to get home and say, "What the hell is all this crap!"
The Cake: This design idea came from a pin that I found on pinterest, but other than a photo I had nothing! I ordered the crystal clear steps (not white) and rock candy from Amazon. Despite the poor reviews the rock candy was not broken and was nicely sized for it's purpose. I have specific directions at the end of this post on how the cake was created, simply!
The Party Favors: Hello, beautiful! This is the first time I utilized my silhouette to make party favors and Ms. B and I couldn't have been more pleased with the end result. The pattern: "3D Design round fancy purse"
The goodies: Keeping with the color scheme; stickers, eos lipbalm, Lindt truffles, and a rainbow loom bracelet. The rainbow loom bracelets were made by my older daughters which was a nice way to have them get involved with the party.

(1) White Frosting

* Dowels & Scotch Tape
* White Edibile Glitter
*Heres a trick/tip: I like to decorate my children's cakes but don't necessarily want have time to bake them. Order them from your local grocery/bakery iced but not decorated this provides you with a clean canvas. For this frozen cake, I ordered the cakes ahead of time and picked them up the day before the party. Our local grocery stores make a small round cake for a baby's 1st birthday known as a smash cake. *The smash cake is what I used for the round portion of this cake. It is not a typical round (it's smaller) than what you would just go and by out of the bakery case.
The Ice Cream Cone Mt's: I made these the day before so they had time to harden. Lay out a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and simply use the tub of white frosting to frost all the way around. For an added touch, I added edible glitter for cake decorating. This added touch gave it a shimmery snow look. Perfect touch!
The day of the party, I placed the small cake on top of the 1/2 sheet cake. I did not have to transport my cake so no dowels were used. Then, I put the stairs in place keeping in mind where I was going to place the characters.
The Ice Mountain: I had some wooden dowels left from another cake and taped them to several of the rock candy sticks to add some height to the ice mountain. I then just staggered the rock candy by placing the sticks/dowels directly into the cake.
I placed about 3 of the ice cream cone mt's on the cake and then put a couple around the cake. I sprinkled the loose rock candy (that had fallen off during shipment) around the edge of the cake, a small bit on top, and shavings on the steps. I then sprinkled some of the shimmery edible glitter around the top of the cake to give it an "icy" feel. The last thing was to put the characters in place.
I had a lot of fun creating this photo from a picture that I originally saw. I hope these more specific directions help you. Please let me know if you have any questions.
*Note: the one thing I found was that the cake was hard to move because of the rock candy inserted into the cake was top heavy. If you are having this at home, I would create it wherever you plan on serving the cake. If you are transporting the cake, I would put the rock candy mountain on once you arrive (it only takes 5 minutes).
I'll be back in the next couple of days with part 2 & 3 of the Frozen Party theme. Including games, food, decorations.
