‘Tis the season to LET IT GOOOOO 🎶 Frozen is back with its sequel and we are already seeing so many amazing Frozen-inspired cakes!
For everyone tagging us in your Frozen-inspired cakes already, we are seeing them and loving them, but if you take a look at the Renshaw Baking Facebook page you will see why we haven’t asked to share any of your great creations yet… we are celebrating Frozen’s release with a fantastic competition! You’ll have 5 chances to win a Renshaw hamper full of colours perfect for your Frozen cake creations. Entries are now open (although be quick – entries close midday on the 29th of November)! The prize is available in the UK only.
Oh, and while you’re there, check out the amazing Frozen competition from our friends at Rainbow Dust too!
If you want to make a head-start in the competitions, we have the perfect inspiration for you – not one but TWO recipes – a ‘Snow and Ice Drip Cake’ and ‘Textured and Patterned Cupcakes’.
Our very own Francezka Bell made this beautiful cake using Renshaw Baby Blue Ready to Roll Icing with a Christmassy Renshaw Royal Icing snow drip effect and Rainbow Dust Liquid Colour Baby Blue for the ice shards. ❄️
🌟 Francezka’s Academy Advice for this cake, and indeed any Royal Icing drip effect cakes is to test the Royal Icing drip on an upturned tall glass to gauge the flow of the icing before piping onto the cake.
This recipe also features precise instructions for creating the sugar glass, which can be a tricky skill to get right, so be sure to follow our advice to create a perfect ice shard effect for your next creations.

Francezka also made these cute cupcakes with inspiration taken from the dresses of Elsa and Anna. Made using our Cassis and Sapphire Blue Ready to Roll Icing and painted with Rainbow Dust Metallic Paint Light Gold, the colour combination looks so elegant, whilst the Rainbow Dust Pearl White Lustre provides an extra wintry sparkle ✨ (Rainbow Dust’s new Twinkle Dust would also give it a Christmassy feel).
🌟 Francezka’s Academy Advice for using Rainbow Dust Metallic Paints is to wait until the first layer is completely dried before applying a second layer (if necessary to apply a second coat).

We love these cute Anna and Elsa cake toppers, beautifully crafted using Renshaw Flower and Modelling Paste, then painted and dusted with a range of Rainbow Dust products. We hear you shouting for a video tutorial for these cute toppers and you’re in luck because there’s not just 1 tutorial but 3, one each for Elsa, Anna and Olaf. If you’ve been inspired by these cake toppers Zoe’s Fancy Cakes now sells Face Moulds, whilst she also offers a range of hands-on, practical courses, where she teaches a variety of her specialist technique. For our own step-by-step guides to creating modelled characters click here, whilst if you want to build a snowman, we’ve got the perfect guide for you (where you can also learn how to make a robin and a choir boy – 3 for the price of 1, talk about Christmas treats) here.
During the release of the first Frozen film (in 2013, can you believe it’s been 6 years!) our Baby Blue Ready to Roll Icing was the must-have colour for cakes (also available in our Extra range if you are covering deep cakes) so we’re expecting this to be hugely popular colour again whilst the cake world has Frozen Fever. Did you know our Colour of the Year, Cassis Ready to Roll Icing is also the perfect shade for the colour of Anna’s dress? For more Cassis inspiration click here.
Rainbow Dust’s Metallic Paint range also make an ideal decoration for Frozen cakes, particularly the Metallic Gold and Silver shades and Pearlescent White colours to add an extra Christmassy feel to everyone’s creations. We also expect to see lots of Frozen-inspired drip cakes and ice shards (luckily our recipes feature precise instructions and advice for these techniques 😉).
We hope we’ve inspired you to create a Frozen themed creation in your next cake decorating project. We’d love to see what you make, so feel free to share with us on social media at Renshaw Baking (and don’t forget to enter our Frozen competition).
