From Disney’s Frozen to The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Snow Queen has inspired countless adaptions–and now it’s our turn! This beloved tale of bravery and friendship follows the journey of young Gerda as she attempts to rescue her best friend Kai from the clutches of the evil Snow Queen. With the help of some unique friends and little magic, Gerda is determined to break the Snow Queen’s spell and melt the ice that has taken hold of Kai’s heart before he is lost to her forever! The Snow Queen returns to Creative Cauldron with a new script and bilingual Spanish inclusion.

Part history lesson, part social science revelation, “Makin’ Cake” is a short story about America’s sweet tooth and pathway to salvation (and salivation) and leaves room for dessert and dialogue.
