Snow Globe Cake

filed under: Miscellaneous on December 21, 2011

UPDATED:  Tutorial Here!

Its hard for me to believe that Christmas is almost here.  Just a few short days away!

I have been so behind on all my baking (as well as buying gifts, cleaning my house, homeschooling, debating crumbs… you name it!)  but I still wanted to make a dessert that folks would enjoy.  At least, I hope they do!

This took all of one hour to make.  From beginning to end.

I slaved and slaved over a hot stove for at least seven minutes.

And for the inside, well that was even more ridiculous hard work.

I actually had to get in there and play with my food!  Well, play with the rice krispy’s that is!

Can you tell what it is?

It’s a snow globe with a snowman inside.  Next time I will definitely make the black hat for Mr. Snowman.  He seems a little naked without it.  And make his eyes.  And a carrot nose.  Well, maybe he seems naked cause he is naked.

I gotta stop saying naked!

Anywho, I would be delighted to share a tutorial on this cake with you, hopefully next week!  Is anyone going to be around next week?

What all do you do over your Christmas break?  Going anywhere fun?

    Looks very cute. Did you make a snowman, then wrap him in a ball of green rice krispies and then finally mount it on a stand? And then cover everything and shape it into a cake 🙂 Sounds delicious to me.

    I know this definitely isn’t the most appropriate place to mention this. First, I LOVE your blog. Used to check it religiously. Every day 🙂 But I have to say I really don’t like the new layout. I want to be able to scroll through a few of your blogs, rather than click back, and then click on the next post. Or at least there should be a way to click to the next most recent post, rather than having to click back to your home page and then scroll down and then find the next most recent post and then back again. It’s tedious, and I’ve found myself not eager to read your blog since the update. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes and ideas – I just wish I could access them better and more readily…
