Are you looking for Disney Frozen birthday party ideas? We had so much fun putting together this Frozen-themed birthday.
Let it go, let it go, can’t hold it back any-m-ooo-ooo-re! If you have little girls, that is probably the song you’ve been hearing nonstop for the past several months. That has certainly been the case in our house. So it was no surprise when my sweet girl requested a Disney Frozen birthday party for her 4th birthday. I really wish I could freeze time and keep her just barely 4 for longer.
She was set on going to Disneyland to meet Elsa and Anna from Frozen for her birthday, but at the last minute decided she actually wanted to celebrate with her friends – almost-4-year-olds can be fickle! So I had to keep the party fairly simple, but it was a lot of fun. And we saved a ton of money by making the cake, food, and decorations ourselves. Keep reading some ideas for a Disney Frozen birthday party!
In Santa Barbara there is a wonderful company called Tea in Tiaras that will send a “real” Disney princess to your house for a party. My sweetie was shocked when the real Elsa from Frozen showed up at the door! It was a priceless moment she hasn’t been able to stop talking about.
Elsa played a few games with the kids. This version of Red Light, Green Light was adorable with the addition of “Olaf Light” thrown in. When Elsa said “Olaf Light” all the kids had to fall down as if they were melting like Olaf the snowman from Frozen. It was an appropriate game for this 85-degree day. We also had face painting.

For the eyes, I used Wilton candy eyes. I got them at Michael’s but you can get them on Amazon as well. And for the carrot noses, I used orange candy-covered chocolate chips also from Wilton. There may be better options, but this is all I could find.
I used this doll, which was also my daughter’s birthday present:
I used 2 boxes of organic yellow cake mix and baked them in 2 9-inch cake pans and 1 2-quart batter bowl like this:
I had extra batter and used it for cupcakes.
I baked the cake about a week early and froze it. The night before the party I made the frosting and assembled the cake. I used a knife to cut a hole for the doll to fit into:
Sorry about the ugly iphone picture, but I think it is helpful. I frosted between layers and then froze the cake for 5 minutes to harden the frosting. Next I frosted with blue tinted vanilla frosting. Whenever the frosting became difficult to work with I popped the cake back into the freezer for a minute. Finally, I removed Elsa’s skirt and cape, wrapped her legs with plastic wrap and just stuck her right in! A little more frosting was all it took to make a pretty seal between the doll and the cake. I piped on some white snowflakes and added a sprinkle of white sugar, but that’s optional.
