  3. So so cool! Love it! And as far as accurately measuring the frosting, a plunger style measuring cup works wonders for all sticky, gooey ingredients! 😉

  4. This is SO awesome! My 6-year-old wants a Frozen movie themed birthday and I think I’ll make a couple of batches for the girls to play with as one of our activities. Such a sweet idea and your photos are just beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Love this idea! So simple. I shared on my blog today

  9. Oh My How I really Love the way this looks! Unfortunately, I am NO Baker & don’t own a mixer–would it work by hand (if starting at room temp), & or Blender on the slowest? I’m not sure we ‘ll be able to do this one … But it’s lovely none the less!

  10. I to am wondering if there is a way to make this without a stand mixer. Have it on my list of activities for spring break next week, sure hope there is another way.

  11. This looks great! Quick question, you said premade frosting? Do you mean like the Betty Crocker cake frosting? I only ask cause it doesn’t look the same consistency as what’s in those little tubs. Thanks !

    • Yes just like Better Crocker cake frosting (just those pre-made tubs you get in the baking isle). I did not use the “whipped” frosting though. Just the regular kind:)
