Last weekend, it was the birthday afternoon of my daughter who celebrated her 3 years.
For that (like these last 2 years), I made him a “sweet table”, a birthday buffet filled with delicacies for young and old.
I remain like last year in the Disney theme (it was the sweet table Snow White, remember) but I could not escape the general enthusiasm around the latest born, "Snow Queen"!
My daughter, an absolute fan of the film, knows the songs and the lines by heart, mimics the passages of the film wearing Elsa's blue dress that she never leaves ...
And converted his mom!
The story of Frozen is very beautiful and original I think, and the images are magnificent (and hey… I admit… I love the song “Libéréééééééééée, deliveredéééééée” like that you know everything).
So my theme was found a long time ago!
A sweet table is a lot of preparation beforehand, because there are many details to think about (wall decoration, table stationery, cake topper and of course the pastries ...) so that the result is (if possible) perfect D-day.
I will go through all the elements of the table in detail for more details.
I articulated my table around the central room of the birthday cake, then associated it with 6 kinds of delicacies and 1 drink, all in the “Snow Queen” theme.
I chose to rename each element in a nod to the film ...
FYI, all the stationery comes from Etsy (one of my favorite sites!) Like the dessert labels here which I then retouched using Photoshop. The wall decoration, I bought it on Ebay.
And so here is the cake!
I made a lemon-poppy layer cake, garnished with lemon curd and vanilla cream, then covered with a creamy vanilla icing in the shape of roses.
I give the recipe in this article here (blue dye to add).
In any case, I wanted to change from the classic chocolate or vanilla cake ...
On top of the cake, I made sugar paste snowflakes.
I made a cake topper planted on the cake from a personalized visual with my daughter's name ordered on the Etsy site here. It is basically a visual to iron on a t-shirt, but I diverted it to a more greedy use!
The little characters in the movie (look at Olaf how cute he is!) Were purchased on Ebay.
* Snowy cupcakes… *
These are apple cupcakes topped with a buttercream swiss meringue that I flavored with caramel.
The decoration is made of sugar paste snowflakes.
* Hearts of ice ... *
These are coconut cake pops covered with a thin chocolate shell.

* Arendelle lemonade… *
Official drink of the kingdom ;-)
I poured a touch of turquoise coloring in a classic lemonade, the taste does not change!
I found these lovely plastic bottles on Ebay, as did the turquoise striped straws.
* Sven's carrots *
If you've seen the movie, you can see what I'm referring to right away :-)
« Reindeer are better than men… ”
* Snowballs… *
What could be more like a snowball than a Raffaelo®?
These little balls therefore had their place perfectly on my sweet table!
* Ice cubes ... *
Turquoise Jelly with a red fruit flavor! The color is just perfect ...
I ordered it from the MyAmericanMarket site here (very difficult to find otherwise!)
I took the jelly in a rectangle mold then cut into cubes.
I absolutely wanted to make these ice cubes!
In fact, I really like the first scene of the film…
"Born on top of the mountains
Drenched with frozen rain
This lake of snow hides
A very precious treasure that must be earned
We cut in the morning wind
Work chases away sorrow
By the strength of your hands
Break the shell
To us the heart of ice ... "
To see the extract I'm talking about it's here
* Olaf's arms ... *
Olaf is the famous snowman from the film, funny and touching.
So these pretzels are his arms!
"-Olaf, you're starting to melt!
-Some people have the gift of making you melt… ”
I leave you with the song of the film which runs in a loop at my place ...
