First Snow Cake

Last night was the first snowfall that stuck to the ground. Unfortunately for my poor kids, it wasn't enough for shoveling. But it was enough to look lovely...

And it was enough to warrant a celebration.  I made a First Snow Cake!  

I made two round chocolate cakes...

used melted white chocolate discs to pipe "snowflakes" onto wax paper...

gathered my winter-y sprinkles and colored some frosting light blue... (ended up not using the blue snowflakes)

 I stacked the cakes...

added sugar-snow...

and the chocolate snowflakes...

We're looking forward to dessert tonight!

Also to celebrate the first snowfall we read Snowflake Bentley, by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and perused some of Bentley's photographs on-line.


  1. This is wonderful, WONDERFUL and so easy too. I will be doing this if we ever get a sprinkling of snow here in Texas.

    1. Thank you! I hope you do get to try it, although I imagine that snow in Texas is never a guarantee!
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. Theresa thank you so much for sharing the stuff you do with your family. You give me such great ideas, starting points, and things to consider doing with my own. Thank you for that.

    And I am totally going to copy this idea come the first day of Winter. What a great small celebration! Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Megan! (confession - I pretty much get all my ideas from other moms!)
      Hope you get to make the cake!


Like the old song says, "comments are a girl's best friend." Or something like that... So... leave a comment! I love chatting here! Pretend you're on my back porch, kick the broken plastic sandbox toys aside, sip your iced coffee, or beer, or (__fill in the blank with your beverage of choice__) and let's talk about all the things, because back-porch blogging is what I do!
