Snowman Cake

When I saw this snowman cake on The Cake Blog, which is one of my favorite blogs for cake inspiration, I knew I had to attempt to make it. It was soooo cute and I knew the kids would love it. It was also a very appropriate time to make this snowman cake. It was made during a blizzard! That might not be anything special for you, but where I’m from in the south, we don’t have blizzards. Actually, I think the last time they had a blizzard here I was 4 years old and of course I don’t remember it. So yes, I was as giddy as a 4 year old while experiencing my first blizzard.

Anyway, moving on to the cake.

The cake was a strawberry cake with strawberry icing and coconut on the outside.

The eyes and nose are made out of fondant.


The scarf is just a piece of ribbon I had and the gloves were printed off the computer from a good search and glued on to skewers. It turned out super cute, the kids loved it, and it was a great way to celebrate my first blizzard! 😉

Winnie the Pooh and Tiger too!

Don’t you love when you agree to do a last minute cake order and it turns out to be one of your best?! That’s kinda how this Winnie the Pooh cake went. It was a short notice order and the client didn’t really have an exact idea for the cake other than it needed to be Winnie the Pooh themed. I actually even procrastinated and gave myself an uncomfortable, small amount of time to get it done and then when the pressure was on, BAM, I felt like I knocked it out of the park!

Do you ever surprise yourself like that? Do you ever say yes to something and then stress about it and almost regret saying yes, but when it gets down to the wire your inner most creativity comes out and you actually do some of your best work? Funny how that happens, huh?
