While "winter wedding cake" certainly brings to mind sugar snowflakes and edible sparkles, we also love the look of a more understated confection that's simply topped with a few frost-covered embellishments.
Fresh fruit like cranberries, blackberries, and raspberries look chilly and frostbitten when covered with a dusting of sanding sugar; use them to embellish the cake tiers for a wonderfully wintry touch. Other nature-inspired wintertime elements like pinecones, evergreen sprigs, and branches can also be sculpted from sugar and chocolate. For a snow effect, give them a dip in sugar before adding them to the cake.
