Snowflake cakes
Posted: Jan 20, 2009 11:46 PM

So I'm thinking of having a snowflake cake, like the ones here:

http://www.earlenescakes.com/snwflksntydyed.htm

Only with a pale and very frosty blue base frosting, and white glittery snow flakes. I make cupcakes and thick chewey cookies like this (Blue frosting, a single white snowflake) in the winter,it looks really nice. What does everyone think? Oh, and I'd have a wintery topper, instead of just topping it with the frosting flakes.

I love the idea, but I have to say I'm biased. My cake was VERY similar to the ones you posted only a llittle simpler. I had fewer snowflakes. I had my cake lightly coated in edible glitter, and instead of the beads of frosting at the base of each layer, I had clear rock candy to look like ice chunks. I used a Swaroski Crystal Christmas Tree topper for my cake topper (So I can use it year after year).

My cake:

I also think these are really pretty:

I know this one is featuring the topper, but the cake it's on looks so neat:

If you wanted to go with a really dark blue to add a touch of drama:




I like the idea of the blue cake and white snowflakes. Were you thinking something along the lines of these (as far as the color scheme goes)?





A really cool idea came to mind when you mentioned this. I thought about how pretty it would be to have the color fade up the cake like the pictures below.

LinzZ, I l ove the idea of using a tree topper as a cake topper! That is so cute.

And you found pictures of blue ones, that's a similar color to what I'd use.
