Epic Frozen Cake

  2. Place the bottom layer on a cardboard cake disk and level the bottom layer out with a knife.
  3. Take the next layer and cut out the center leaving around 5cm around the perimeter.
  4. Fill the center with slightly softened ice cream and wrap the whole cake with plastic wrap.
  5. Place in freezer until ready to serve.
  6. When ready to serve ice with whipped cream frosting and top with blue ice candy and Frozen figurines. (Instructions for frosting and ice candy are below).

Whipped Cream Frosting


  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1½ tsp. unflavoured gelatin
  • 4 tsp. water


  1. Mix the water and gelatin in a large microwave safe bowl.
  2. Microwave on high for about 20 seconds or until all the gelatin is dissolved. Let the gelatin cool off to a lukewarm temp before adding it to the cream.
  3. With an electric mixer whip the heavy cream, sugar and vanilla on high or until thickened.
  4. Add the gelatin to the whipped cream slowly and beat on high until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks.

Blue Ice Candy Cake Decorations


  • 3¾ cups white sugar (must be white granulated sugar)
  • 1½ cups light corn syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon, or other flavoured extract -( make sure that you use a non colored extract or it will tint the finished product)
  • blue food-colouring


  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together the white sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to a boil. Without stirring, heat to 149 to 154 degrees C, or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in flavored extract and food coloring, if desired.
  3. Pour onto a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Let cool, and break into large pieces that resemble broken ice. Store in an airtight container.
