Kermit and Constantine Cake #MuppetsMostWanted

This is a sponsored posts, all opinions are 100% my own

I love the Muppets, I always have, I own EVERY movie they have made and my kids love watching them too!  The latest movie, Muppets Most Wanted is no exception, it’s HILARIOUS!  Mrs. Piggys is, of course, a favorite.  I have always had a thing for pigs, and she’s just great, a strong woman who goes after what she wants, and she wants it all.  Gotta love her!

Frozen Princess Cake Elsa

The Frozen Elsa cake! YAY!

This was probably my biggest challenge of all my Princess cakes (see also Merida, Rapunzel and Tiana), but she and Anna turned out pretty great!

Out of all my cakes this is the one I wish I had more time on, the one I’d consider doing again just to get ALL that I want done.  Anyone else doing a Frozen party this year?

Frozen Princess Cake – Anna

And finally the cakes!  (Don’t forget to check out my Merida, Rapunzel and Tiana Princess cakes as well)

Today I’m Sharing the Anna tutorial and tomorrow we’ll do Elsa!  Making these cakes was so much fun! Looking back there are a few things I’d change.  The week of the party the baby got sick and I got behind. So I felt kind of rushed through the cakes, I MIGHT actually break my no repeat rule to add the final details I feel were missing from these.
