Happy Monday all!
My girls birthday party was this last Saturday, I cannot believe they are 6!, it is a bit sad that I definitely don’t have babies anymore!
Anyway, they wanted a Frozen party, yes! again! I cannot wait for Disney to come up with something else! please do!. They were all dressed up like Elsa (again), with the dresses I made last year!, these dresses have been to soooooo many Frozen (and not Frozen related parties!), they have even been in a party with bouncy castles and trampolines! seriously they have been the £5.75 most bestest expend in my kids EVER! I made these dresses and I wrote a tutorial.
I made these cakes for them, they were delicious! not seriously! really good!, I am not the best baker so I was soooo happy with them!, they were 17 kids, so there was a lot of cake left… they were… sadly done by last night!
Two very happy Elsas
After their party, we went to a swimming gala, they were so happy to see Sully from Monsters Inc!, apparently it was the “best birthday party ever” (they screamed that when I asked!)
I made two of course, and as I am not very keen of fondant (nor I am any good with it!) I decided to put a bit of vanilla buttermilk frosting, decorated with white chocolate stars, silver balls, and white and blue snowflakes… basically anything “frozeny”. The stars are just those fairy wands you buy to fill up the party bags, over all they were thrilled with their cakes and again they were delicious! Not really! they were!, I just cannot believe I made them! 🙂
Here is the recipe with you fancy it making them, this post is kind of for my own records, as I have made olive oil cakes with greek yogurt before but these quantities seem to work best, I know I will use this mixture again!
1 and half cups of plain flour
3/4 cup of caster sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup of greek yogurt
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 pure vanilla extract
1/4 semi skimmed milk
Preheat the oven at 350 F, (180 C), I used a silicone mold from Ikea so it doesn’t need any fat, but if you are using a traditional one make sure you grease it properly
Basically I used two bows, in the larger one I put all the dry ingredients (sifting the flour and the baking powder), on a smaller one, I put all the wet ingredients, and then I drop the wet mixture to the dry, making sure all the flour gets wet.
I baked them for about 40 minutes but my oven is fan assisted so I noticed I need about 5 to 10 minutes less than conventional ovens, just check with a skewer that they are fully cooked.
After leaving them to cool down overnight, I made a very simple vanilla buttermilk frosting and added to the top, as I explained above I just picked anything that looks Frozen enough and I stick it there!
I hope you enjoy this and send me some pictures if you bake it, I just love when I hear from you guys, sometimes it feels lonely when I am the only one talking!, I much rather have a conversation with you than just telling you about my day!
