Olaf Cake Tutorial

What is a FROZEN party without an Olaf Cake???!

It’s a super easy way to make your FROZEN themed party extra special. With these pans, I used one box of white cake and 1/2 batch of homemade frosting (equal to 1 can of store bought). ATTENTION! All Dairy Free people!!! If you use dairy-free box mix and store bought vanilla icing, this can be a dairy free dessert for a party where an allergy may be an issue.

Here’s what I did…

oval pan, round pan, jumbo muffin pan...crisco'd ans floured

cook until golden, cool completely

trim oval cake for head, trim round cake for body, trim muffins for neck and feet (cutting them flatter as needed to keep them all relatively the same height)
