I am one of the gazillion people on the planet who love Frozen. I think it might be my new favorite Disney movie (sorry, Beauty and the Beast, you’ve been knocked down). I won’t go on and on about how wonderful Frozen is (but believe me, I could). Last summer I made Disney Princess cupcakes, which are very similar to these.
24 cupcakes (any kind you would like; I used box mix white cake)
A batch of buttercream icing (I used the white buttercream icing recipe here)
A large petal tip, Wilton #127
Disposable pastry bags
Food coloring: dark blue, light blue (I used Wilton gel colorings)
Lollipop sticks, cut in half
Elsa, Anna, and Olaf images
A note about the Elsa/Anna/Olaf pictures: I searched for each individual character using Google, save the corresponding images, and resized them all so that they would be proportionate. I then printed 4 of each on cardstock. I cut them out and attached them to the lollipop sticks using tape. I do not want to post the images on my blog (because it might be a murky area, copyright-wise). If you’d like them, please leave a comment & I will send them your way.
PLEASE READ: I have received approximately 1 million requests for these images (as you can see by the comments below). I try to get the images out to you as soon as I can, but I ask for your patience. Also, and this is important, if you do not provide me with a valid email address, I can’t help you. I’ve had numerous emails bounce back to me because the addresses are erroneous. If I haven’t responded to you, this may be why, so re-submit your comment and we can try again.
1. Bake your cupcakes and allow them to cool entirely. While they are cooling, make a batch of buttercream icing. You may want to make an extra 1/2 batch, especially if you are doing these for the first time and haven’t gotten a hang of using the petal tip.
2. Divide the icing into three small bowls. Use the food coloring to dye each batch a different princess skirt color, leaving one bowl plain white.
3. Fit a pastry bag with the large petal tip and fill the bag with one of the batches of colored icing. Pipe two layers of petals onto the top of each cupcake. I would highly suggest practicing this on a napkin first. It took me a few tries to get the petal look just right. You will want the wider end of the tip pointing out.
4. Olaf, obviously, doesn’t have a princess skirt. So I just used a large round tip for his cupcakes.
5. Once all of the cupcakes are frosted, stick the Elsa/Anna/Olaf toppers into the cupcakes.
