In December 2016 I made this fun cake for my oldest Son’s third birthday. I don’t remember the flavor on this one either. I think some was white and some was chocolate. And it was decorated with Crisco buttercream. I ordered the sugar sheet logo on Amazon I think, and it was too big for the cake, even trimmed down! Regardless, he loved it and was happy.
I like using little figurines like this on cakes because the kids love having something left from the cake to play with.
After making my Son’s Minion cake, I found and planned making this cake all year for my Daughter’s fifth birthday in November, 2016. The bottom tier is a simple white cake with a white Crisco buttercream frosting. I added sugar crystals to make it look like snow.
I made the snow globe following this tutorial by My Cupcake Addition on YouTube.
The base is made by coating the inside of a giant cupcake silicone mold with candy melts before layering cake inside. The glass is actually just a fishbowl from a thrift store. the snowflakes are fondant cut out with plunge cutters. You can’t see it very well in this picture, but there are details on them from the press.
The snow in and on top of the globe are just thick circles of fondant. I was so proud of this cake and it took me a lot of work at the time. If I did it now it would probably feel fairly simple for me to do.
