Deryn’s Frozen Cake & Party

Hello! Emma here…

So this weeks big idea was to make Deryn’s birthday cake πŸ™‚ My mum always made my birthday cakes herself and it felt so much more personal, don’t get me wrong there are some amazing cake makers out there, but I didn’t have a large budgetΒ and I wanted Deryn to have something made by me πŸ™‚ Her 1st birthday cake was made by my mum & was Mike Wazowski…last year due to my depression she barely had a birthday…this year was going to be much different!!

So…what do i do when I fancy making something…I message my best mate…Kayley sent me a wonderful Youtube Link for a Princess Castle Cake…You can view it herePart 1 & Part 2.

Fantastic tutorial, easy to follow and the end cake looked fab…well..I think so & all my friends and family!

So first things first…go to my mum for the sponge cakes πŸ™‚ My mum makes the lovliest cakes & this way she gets to be involved in Deryn’s birthday cakes too πŸ™‚ joint effort all round. 6 sponge cakes later & they were ready to be brought home!

Yummy bit of jam & homemade butter cream, big box of decorative bits & pieces…kids in bed…cuppa made…time to follow the lovely tutorial and get making πŸ™‚ 4 hours of decorating…lots and lots of messages to kayley and step by step photos….and this was ready πŸ™‚

I made the cake slightly smaller than the original tutorial, used white & blues for the Frozen castle, added the characters bought on ebay & sprayed with some gorgeous shimmer spray. I added Snowflakes made from some fab stamper/cutters again bought on ebay. very cheap and easy to use, simply press into icing & then Pop them out!! A couple of flags on top and it was ready πŸ™‚

Deryn saw it first thing in the morning as it was slightly too hard to hide πŸ™‚ She loved it!!

We decorated the house in decorations including some from Free Printables online, I can send these via email to anyone who would like them πŸ™‚ Simply send your requests to thenotsoperfecthousewives@hotmail.com

We made our own buffet up for all the guests which turned out to be 15 in all, I used coupons and special offers to get it to under Β£20 for the lot πŸ™‚

Plates, Table cloth & Napkins all from ebay, and lots of Peppa Pig plates from Deryn’s make & bake with Peppa Pig…we like baking in this house πŸ™‚

Fantastic day had by all πŸ™‚ We watched Frozen, Deryn played with the figures from the cake and wore her princess dress….I have been maing 2 Tutu dresses which will be uploaded soon too πŸ™‚
