Frozen by Anne

frozenAnother creation using Hopper’s colouring, you can see how it’s the non-food items that really make this work.  Well,  that and Anne’s piping skills.
This doll was a cheapie and has had her legs broken off.  (Don’t do this in front of the kids if you don’t want them to have birthday-cake-related trauma!!)

Why has it taken this long to get a Frozen cake???

For the squares, I rolled out the coloured fondant on baking parchment with a bunch of cornflour to stop it sticking and then just sliced it into rows and squares with a pizza cutter.

Instructions for how to make Marshmallow Fondant both in a Thermomix or on the stove-top can be found at Domestic Diva’s blog.

Recipe for Magic Bean chocolate cake is here; just substitute kidney beans with cannelini or butter beans and the carob with rice flour and add equiv 1 vanilla bean.

I suspect the cake was  greener than this picture suggests.
