This winter has been pretty mild here in Illinois, so far anyway. The weather forecasters are calling for snow today, but I’m not sure if I believe them. They’ve cried wolf a few times before. Ironically though, my old hometown of Dallas is getting a little taste of winter with snow falling this morning. So hats off to you in Dallas, enjoy! (Or more like, hats ON. As in your warm woolly winter hats!) I’m just glad I haven’t had to shovel the driveway yet this season.
And since we’re chatting about snow, let’s look at some gorgeous snow inspired cake designs!
- Kate Sullivan of LovinSullivanCakes is the artist behind this all white wintery scene. White chocolate pinecones and sugar-covered floral wire create the snowy embellishment on the top tier.
- This cake by Rebecca Thuss is sophisticated and elegant. The tree trunk stand sets the stage for the simplistic winter branches and snow birds.
- The cake geniuses over at Martha Stewart designed this cascading snowflake cake. Snowflakes made from royal icing are petite at the top and grow larger towards the bottom, to create an illusion of falling snow.
- The last stunning snowflake cake is by Truli Confectionery Arts. Grouping the sugar snowflakes in the front of the cake creates such a dramatic presentation. Each snowflake is painted with platinum gold luster, to give it a subtle glimmer. Just lovely!
Hope you enjoyed these wonderful winter cakes! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a great new giveaway!!
