Putting together a themed birthday party is a ton of work. Usually, the cake about kills me, but not this time. This Disney Frozen cake was probably the simplest part of the whole party! You won't believe how easy it is to make this gorgeous cake!

Easiest Ever Disney Frozen Cake
While preparing for our Frozen party, I scoured the web for ideas and came across some gorgeous cakes. Most were topped with figurines (which we don't have) and blue rock candy (which I know how to make--but I just didn't have the time or energy!). I loved them, but they were too much work for this busy mommy. While cleaning out my cupboards during my Spring DeJunk Challenge, I found my set of nesting snowflake cookie cutters. It was like a light bulb went off in my head, and this idea was born.
Here's what you need:
- 2 Round Cake Pans
- 1 cake mix (or prepare your favorite recipe)
- White and blue frosting
- Pearl Blue Candy Sixlets (for decorating)
- Decorating Tips for frosting
- Blue sprinkles
- Nesting Snowflake Cookie Cutters
Step 1: Prepare cake mix in 2 round pans and bake as directed. Stack (frost in-between layers) and coat evenly with white frosting. (You'll notice that I am not a pro. I'm sure you can probably get the frosting more smooth than I did!
Decorate around the bottom of the cake with blue frosting. (I used a star tip with my cake decorating tools from Pampered Chef. They're so easy to use!)

Step 2: Carefully lay the snowflake cookie cutters on top of the cake. (Be sure to get them centered!)
Step 3: Generously fill the space between the two cookie cutters with blue sprinkles. Make sure you fill all the way to the edges. It's okay if you go outside the lines. In fact, I think it looks better that way!
Step 4: Carefully lift off the cookie cutters and add more sprinkles as desired.
Step 5: Add sixlets around the bottom and at the points of the snowflake. (Don't add too many sixlets on top. I tried adding more, and it did not look as pretty.) I didn't want to ruin the look by adding lots of candles, so we went with the single candle.
You're done! I'm not sure cake decorating can get much easier! I'm linking you to a few of the tools I used in my project.
Besides a simple sheet cake with frosting on the top, I think this is the easiest birthday cake I've ever made. What's your go-to idea for making simple birthday cakes?
