Ruffles and Ice

This one kind of got away from me a bit!  I offered to make a cake for a friend’s daughter’s second birthday.  She gave me the theme “Frozen”, so I had a think about conveying that theme without resorting to the cliches.

I wanted to do the modern scrunched ruffles in a diagonal up the cake, but I just couldn’t get them to hold their shape properly in the time I was willing to spend on it.  So I went with the more traditional straight ruffles and am glad in the end, as I think the scrunched ruffles would have been too bulky.

For the “ice”,  I made some forms out of tin foil and melted Glacier mints in them.  I then swirled blue colouring in the melted sugar and once it was hardened I broke the pieces up into different sizes of shards.

Not neccesarily the most toddler-ific cake design, but she liked it and I loved the effect.
