Frozen Inspired Birthday Cake and Printable Banner

Easy Frozen Inspired Birthday Cake by BakingdomMy birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and I had grand (ok…mini-grand) plans for a Frozen themed party. A small Frozen themed party, but a party nonetheless.

It was just the Hubster and I, so I made a small cake (it looks large in the photo, but it’s actually a simple 6-inch and 4-inch tiered cake – the equivalent of a single double layer 8-inch cake), and hung some fun Arendelle themed decorations.

Anna Papercraft Cake Topper by BakingdomI kept the cake super simple: chocolate fudge flavored, decorated my favorite way – spreading on rich buttercream and leaving it all fluffy and swirly. I chose to make it in shades of magenta and blue to match Anna’s dress. As for the cake topper, I used a fantastic free papercraft from Spoonful.com.

To keep Anna standing neatly upright, and off of the frosting, which could cause her to stain, I used a straw. Her legs are hollow, so it was easy to simply push the straw into the cake, then put Anna on top, just above the top of the cake.

Frozen Inspired Printable Banner by BakingdomI also made myself a Frozen inspired banner to add to the theme. I was inspired by the gowns that Anna and Elsa wore to the coronation in the film, as well as various Frozen and Arendelle flowers that are based on traditional rosemaling from Norway.

Arendelle Castle Banner from BakingdomThe largest pennant from my banner is an image of Arendelle castle from Disney. I received a free download from Disney with various Arendelle travel posters, and I used the castle image from one to create this pennant.

Black Frozen Banner from BakingdomI loved the splashes of black that Disney used throughout the film in the princess’ gowns, and it was the perfect accent for my banner, as well.

Green Frozen Banners from BakingdomThese teal pennants are based directly off of the bodice of Elsa’s coronation gown.

Purple Frozen Inspired Banners from BakingdomThe fuchsia/magenta pennants have rosemale designs along the edge inspired by the skirt of Elsa’s coronation gown, as well as silhouettes of both Anna and Elsa at the coronation. These are probably my favorites – I’m a sucker for pretty cameo-style silhouettes. I created the silhouettes using stills of each of them from the film.

*I created a lighter version and a darker version of both the teal and the magenta pennants for more versatility. I used the lighter versions (which are what’s pictured in all of my images).

Printable Frozen Banner by BakingdomAll I did to attach each banner was to apply strong glue (I used tacky glue) to the back of each banner where I wanted it on the string. Next, I simply pressed the banner to pretty baking twine. You could also punch holes in each banner and tie them in place on string or ribbon.

I’m thrilled with how my banner turned out, and I decided it was a keeper, so after my birthday, I kept it, and it’s now hanging above my desk in my office. :)

    The cake and the banner are fabulous! Thanks for sharing. Do you mind my asking how you were able to get the free travel posters from Disney? I have been looking for those everywhere.

    Hi! Thanks for the fantastic printables! I just finished putting together Anna and Elsa- what a job! I was wondering how you strung up your banner. I can’t see any holes and I can’t tell if you folded the top over the string or not. It looks amazing, and I can’t wait to put it up!

    I love this! My paper dolls did NOT turn out as good as yours but they’ll work :)
    Also, a huge fan of the banner- thanks so much! My son and step-daughter are having a joint Frozen-themed party this month and I love a banner. THis one’s perfect! Quick question: what did you use to hang it with? Ribbon or thread or what? I’m struggling with what to use.

    In planning my daughter’s birthday party, I’ve been getting carried away. There are so many over the top ideas out there getting me all excited. I stumbled across this and realized you are just my style. I love the simple elegance of the cake and banner. I’m scrapping my other cake idea and going with this. Thank you for sharing and reminding me to keep things simple!

    Just wanted to say that your cake completely inspired me and I used your idea of the Anna (and Elsa) cut out paper dolls on my daughter´s cake. It was a real hit at her birthday party. I am so glad that you shared this because everything else I saw posted was either too expensive or too complicated (for me at least!)
