Bubbles celebrated her 4th birthday back in February.  I had big plans of sharing the entire thing with you at that time, but we were all sick both prior to and following her birthday, so sharing the details kind of slid to the back burner.

One Bowl Elsa Doll Cake Tutorial for a Frozen Birthday Party

As she’s getting older now and definitely has her own opinion on things, I let her choose her own party theme this year.  We looked at some different options online and in the stores, and in the end she (unsurprisingly) chose a Frozen theme.  And once we had decided on Frozen, I knew I wanted to try my hand at an Elsa cake.
