The release of Disney’s Frozen in 2013 sparked a frenzy of love and adoration rarely generated by any other movie, even a Disney movie. Though “Frozen Fever” seems to have finally cooled off a bit, love for the movie still runs strong—the loveable characters have even made a recent entrance onto the Broadway stage.

Top 10 Best Frozen Cakes

3 frozen cake design

There are many styles of Frozen cakes out there – however – below we’ve rounded up the 10 best on the internet.

Pick whichever one you think your child will enjoy the most (probably the one with their favorite character on it) and enjoy the party!

1. Multi-Tiered Frozen Character Cake

Multi-Tiered Frozen Character Cake

This is one of our absolute favorites on this list, and for good reason. This multi-leveled cake takes full advantage of the wintery weather and environment, while also showcasing all the movie’s classic characters.

This cake utilizes both light blue and white to the utmost, capturing the tone of winter and accenting it with snowy and icy details. The ring of dark branches accented with holly berries and leaves around each base of the levels adds an evening tone to the cake simultaneously making it more festive.

The printings of the characters allow for each character to form an important part of the cake, but it’s really the characters made of fondant that stand out: Olaf and Sven. Olaf looks friendly and goofy as always, while the collapsed form of Sven is all at once adorable and comical. The detailing of Sven’s fur is also extremely impressive in the creation of this figure.

2. Frozen Cakes with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf in Summer

Frozen Cakes with Anna, Elsa, and Olaf in Summer

This Frozen cake is a perfect representation of the three most iconic characters from the film: Elsa, Anna, and Olaf. Each character is given their own tier that most accurately represents their style and design—while distinct, each of these tiers are still able to work together to create one cohesive design.

The bottom tier features Elsa, her icy and cool design the most representative of typical Frozen-themed cakes. The light blue base accented with swirling designs of white icing and snowflakes is the perfect framing for Elsa.

Anna’s middle tier is definitely the most distinct. The warm purple hue that matches her clothing in the movie is definitely the most eye-popping part of the cake. The light green leaves with flower buds encircling the tier emit the perfect spring vibe, contrasting with the wintery bottom.

Of course, after winter and spring the next thing is summer. The top tier features a beautiful rippling of icing representing the ocean, with Olaf resting atop it sprawled on the beach underneath an umbrella. A sun sticks just above the umbrella to top off the scene. Along the center of this tier is the iconic quote, “A heart worth melting for.”

This Frozen cake is perfect for any occasion season—well, maybe not fall.

3. Frozen Winter Wonderland Cake

Frozen Winter Wonderland Cake

What really sets this cake from Adrienne & Co. Bakery apart is the way it is able to beautifully execute the winter theme of the cake while still maintaining an element of whimsy with the characters.

The gradual fading of color up the two tiers of the cake is beautifully done, each tone and hue eye-catching. The layered blue and white snowflakes progressing up the side of the cake add to the wintery chill this cake brings, with the snowflakes extending out the side lending it a fun snowfall quality.

The designer incorporates each of the main characters of the film: Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Kristoff, reminding everyone of why they fell in love with the cake in the first place.

We like the potential of the versatility of the cake: with a simple removal of the figures, it becomes the perfect winter-themed cake for a more mature audience while still maintaining that Frozen theme your child loves.

4. Frozen Elsa Cake

Frozen Elsa Cake

This is the perfect cake who want to showcase a little girl power in their celebration.

The base of the cake is a very pale blue, paler than most of the cakes we’ve looked at so far. The bottom is crafted with thin and dainty snowflakes that create a wispy snowstorm effect. And controlling this snowstorm, of course, is Elsa.

A small yet detailed fondant figurine of the queen stands in the very center of the cake, legs planted firmly and arm outspread in a powerful stance. Surrounding the sides and back of Elsa are snow-covered trees and shards of ice that she has raised behind her.

This empowering cake is ideal for any young girls building confidence and looking for a proactive role model.

Rating: 4.5 stars

5. Elsa and Anna Winter/Summer Cake

Elsa and Anna Winter/Summer Cake

This cake is truly the perfect blend of winter and summer. Though this cake has two tiers, the seasons are not divided between them. Rather, each tier equally represents half the season/character, so that they come in contact and start to blend together.

The bottom half features a rim of trees that go along the base, the layers of flat fondant mountains behind them lending the design texture and a three-dimensional quality. On one half, the color scheme is that of winter whites and blues, while the other half features various shades of lively summer greens. The two color schemes collide right in the middle of one of trees on each side.

The second tier is the color of the warm violet tone that Anna wears, accented with snowflakes to give it a bit of a chill. Stylistic renderings of Elsa and Anna are placed on the side of this tier, facing the front. This cake truly succeeds at blending these two sisters and these two seasons flawlessly together.

7. Elsa Atop Her Mountain

Elsa Atop Her Mountain

This cake is similar to another cake on this list in that it utilizes the same style of Elsa figurine: Elsa’s feet spread wide in a steady stance with her arm stretched out, ready to command her icy powers. Unlike the other cake, however, Elsa is not alone—rather, she is joined by Anna and Olaf standing along the bottom tier.

Elsa’s position standing atop the second tier is a powerful one, bespeaking authority and confidence over the icy terrain she has created below her. The presence of Anna and Olaf, then, serve as a reminder that she is not without her friends.

The light blue and white nature of this cake is perfect for capturing that wintery chill, and make for a pretty cake, too.

Rating: 4.5 stars

8. Simple Olaf Winter Cake

Simple Olaf Winter Cake

This cutesy cake is perfect for a young child’s birthday celebration. The light blue of the cake is eye-catching, and therefore stimulating for younger children, toddlers, and infants. Accented with white, this is the perfect cake to simulate that signature Frozen chill.

As with the other cakes by Adrienne & Co. Bakery, this cake uses their custom and gorgeous edible snowflakes to really enhance the overall design of the cake.

The highlight of this cake is definitively the fondant-made figure of Olaf. While always a comedic character, Olaf takes on a particular endearing element of humor in Adrienne’s design: combined with his custom disproportions, this Olaf figure’s buck teeth are emphasized, and his face given further character with his askew eyebrows.

The flat top of this cake makes it an excellent surface for including a specialized written message.

Rating: 4 stars

9. Elsa Cake

 Elsa Cake

This cake is perfect for anyone whose favorite character is Elsa and who admires her glorious braid of light blond hair.

The base of this single-layered round cake takes the form of Adrienne and Co. Bakery’s classic wintery light blue, accented with white icing and their traditional snowflakes. The white icing fringe around the base of the cake forms a beaded rim that adds just the right amount of extra flair to the cake.

A perfect printing of Elsa’s face covers the majority of the top surface of the cake—constructed will all edible materials, of course. This printing allows for extremely accurate character detail that will make you think you’re looking at a TV screen.

What really stands out about this rendering of Elsa, though, is her hair. While the printing of her silhouette is two-dimensional, her hair is taken into the third dimension with its rendering in icing. This icing creation is incredibly detailed, designed in Elsa’s classic braid and fringe around her face with a lifelike texture.

This representation of Elsa is sure to be a hit among all your party guests.

Rating: 4 stars

10. Follow Your Heart Cake

Frozen Cake

This last cake is the most simplistic cake on this list, which can actually be a good thing. This rectangular sheet cake utilizes the classic white and blue, though it also incorporates a more chilly-looking purple.

The back of the cake features a framed image of Olaf, while figurines of Elsa and Anna stand with each other at the front. Swirls of pink and blue decorate the surface, along with likewise-colored hearts. The center is left largely empty, the perfect space for a personalized message.

Unlike the other cakes, you don’t have to go to a specialty bakery. Rather, you can order it from your local HEB if you live near one. This is also a great Frozen cake to draw inspiration from if you’re thinking of crafting your own cake a bit on the simpler side.
