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.
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.
