Easy Disney Frozen Inspired Cupcakes
When Frozen first hit theaters, our daughter was hooked from the start. Frozen remains one of the most popular Disney animated films of all time! Many children are still dressing up as Anna and Elsa at Halloween, and Frozen themed birthday parties are still all the rage. We made these simple Frozen inspired cupcake at our house. I am not a very creative baker, but our guests loved them. We used wintery blue icing and simple Elsa themed finishing touches. you can make these sweet and easy Frozen cupcakes at home! Frozen 2 is sure to encourage more Frozen themed birthday parties, we’ve included a few easy to make and purchase things to make it a winter wonderland!
My daughter LOVES Frozen (I mean, who doesn’t?!) and she really wanted some Frozen inspired goodies at her Ice Queen birthday party. I was sad to see our Party City was all out of Frozen supplies! Remember back when the first Frozen movie came out and nobody had anything Frozen themed? Thank goodness for free printables online as well as Amazon. If you are trying to find some Easy Disney Frozen Inspired Cupcakes, we’ve got you.
We almost always make our cupcakes. They are never fancy. They tend to have a little toothpick with a sticker or printable of the kid’s party theme. Occasionally I take the extra step to throw some food coloring into the mix, maybe some sprinkles, but that is about it. Our Frozen Inspired cupcakes were really no different, but they were WAY cuter, so I kinda had to share.
We used the following printables to grab a picture of the beautiful Snow Queen Elsa for our little printable cupcake toppers. Very cute, super easy. We printed double sided on printable sticker paper and simply wrapped around the toothpick. I wish I could say I had a creative and unique cake flavor that was inspired by Elsa and Anna, but it was simply a box of white cake mix.
I also used store bought frosting. I think it is important to point out that you gotta get a pure white frosting. If I had purchased buttercream frosting it would have mixed with the blue to create a green blue color. Pure white frosting mixed with blue made a perfect “Frozeny” blue!
I wowed my daughter with a little trick that most of you reading probably already know, but in case you don’t – you don’t really need fancy schmancy tools to make cute cupcakes. Scoop frosting into a ziploc bag (I use a quart size) and snip one corner off. Squeeze the frosting out that little hole and it looks so much fancier than the butter knife spread method we usually go with. I think it made all the difference.
I found pretty edible pearls and silver sprinkles – a dash of each were the perfect touch. You can find these at any party supply store – I found them at the 99 cent store – nice!
Here are a few essentials you can have quickly shipped over via the good folks at Amazon.
Don’t trouble yourself going to a party store trying to find all the supplies. Here are plates, cups, forks, banners, and other Frozen themed decor all in the same box.
I love our homemade toppers, but if you would prefer to not print out two dozen tiny Elsas, you can simply order the whole Frozen gang all precut and ready to go!
I wish we had these sweet Frozen cupcake baking cups! These would have really been great for the theme!
Again, we found our pearls at the Dollar Store, but they can be pricey at a regular cake shop. Wilton is available on Amazon for $4 shipped!
As I am updating this post, I thought it might be good to point out that we have been trying to use natural food coloring recently. This is a great starter kit that keeps a few more chemicals out of your kiddos and guests. These natural food coloring options are still bright and vibrant!
A quick hop over to Pinterest will show you hundreds of Disney Frozen Inspired Cupcakes – the vast majority are much fancier than this one. I’m not trying to compete – but these cupcakes were super easy and got lots of compliments. If you are intimidated by really intricate cupcakes but still want to do something pretty, I can assure you – this one is pretty easy peasy! And as you can see, it was birthday girl approved!
