This year January brought us lots of snow and I have been asked to make a snowy cake. It was a present for the 10th birthday of a lovely young lady. She loves shoes but she also wanted a snowman on top of her cake to emphasise her winter birthday. And she also wanted little steps… For me it was kind of challenging to combine fashion shoes with snow, but the result was not that bad.
Inside the cake was one of my layer biscuit cakes with mascarpone: recipe #2 but with chocolate spread instead of jam.
I started making this cake when the weather was not wintery at all: we had sun and my mom brought me the first snowdrops from her garden! The day when the cake was ready it started snowing and didn’t stop for days. My snowman brought a real winter weather 🙂
