A Sparkling Season Cake

The gentle glistening of sparkling white sugar “snow” adds a peaceful, yet festive mood to this holiday scene. Modern-inspired, abstract trees add stunning dimensional interest.


Difficulty: Somewhat Easy


Step 1

In advance, enlarge straight tree cookie cutter to twice the original size. Tint gumpaste green. Roll out to 1/16 in. thickness. Cut 4 to 5 regular size trees and 1 to 2 enlarged trees. Let dry on cornstarch-covered board

Step 2

When dry, decorate trees. Paint regular-sized trees with a pearl dust vanilla mixture in 1/4 in. stripes. Paint larger trees with dots. Let dry.

Step 3

Prepare base. Tint 24 oz. of fondant black. Roll out and cover prepared 10 in. cake base. Let set overnight. Attach sticks to back with gum paste adhesive, allowing only 3 1/2 in. of each stick to show. Let dry.

Step 4

Bake 2-layer cakes. Prepare for stacked construction and to be covered with fondant. Cover with fondant. Thing 1/4 cup of fondant with water. Brush mixtures on cakes one at a time and cover with sugars. Stack and position on fondant-covered board. Let dry.
