Today is our first real winter storm. Not a pretty dusting, but an all out I’m sliding around the road kind of storm. It seems appropriate considering the day, to share with you my new favorite holiday cake. A winter wonderland cake that will look amazing at your Christmas gatherings, holiday parties – really anywhere you want a pretty display throughout the season. And for all the gorgeous festivities of it, the cake topping is the easiest thing to make this holiday season.
The incredible ease of making this cake look amazing is perhaps my favorite thing about it. In the midst of the holiday dash here’s the three simple steps to making a show stopping wonderland cake.
First gather sprigs of evergreen from nature (I was so excited when I learned that evergreen is actually edible!), choose berries to accent, but be sure they are safe to eat before placing them in your cake.
De-sprig the bottom of each of the branches, wash and dry each branch. Then top your cake with whip cream mounding it on the top to look like snow mounds. Chocolate shavings add a pretty and tasty addition. Lastly, place the sprigs, berries and candles in the cake to welcome winter with a celebratory touch!
