Winter White Beginner Gingerbread Cake - Make your favorite gingerbread cake recipe, then use simple buttercream piping techniques to decorate the side of your cake with cute snow-covered houses and trees. Use the tip of a spatula to add snowy swirls into the top of your cake, too! This cake would be lovely with a cup of hot cocoa after a hearty Christmas dinner. You could even add candles to this cake to celebrate a December or January birthday.
This cake just looks like a winter forest! Black Forest Cake, recipe from A Tale of Two, (adapted from a What Katie Ate recipe). If I decide to have a winter wedding, having a mini cake like this for everybody would be pretty cool.
