The 6th Cake of Christmas

It’s week two of our holiday cake series, The 12 Cakes of Christmas!  We’re featuring festive and wintry cakes from talented cake artists across the country.  And this week, it’s is all about the snow.  Five new, inspiring designs… some are elegant, some are playful, some come with instructions!  And all of them come with snow!!  Cake #6 is up and it’s an incredible, wintry delight!

The beauty of freshly fallen snow is captured in this pristine and purely elegant design, created by Allison Kelleher, owner of AK Cake Design in Portland.  The subtle glimmer of a snowflake, the bright glow off the fluffy blanket of white.  This incredible Winter White Cake will have you singing… Let it snow!  Let it snow!  Let it snow!!

Allison shared a few thoughts about her Winter White design:

“I wanted it to be light and airy – reminiscent of snow but not actually mimicking it. The white blossoms are subtly shaded to add a little more depth and movement. And the red ribbon breaks up the white a bit – also making the cake more festive for the holiday season.”

During the few years we lived in the north, I was never a huge fan of the snowy winters…. the shoveling, the ice, the cold.  But this, this is snow I can love!  The beauty of white glittering snow blanketing the ground… in the form of an elegant cake.  Whether you love the snow or you’re a Winter wimp like me, I think we all can agree that this cake is spectacular!

A special thanks to Allison of AK Cake Design for sharing her Winter White Cake with us today.  It would steal the show at any winter event!  The white snowy goodness continues on tomorrow with cake #7 and through the remainder of the week!  Let it Snow, Snow, Snow!!
