- Time:3 hours
1Project time does not include the time needed to bake or cool cake. Note that this project also requires making components several days in advance of serving time.
2Make snowflakes two days in advance. Knead 1/2 teaspoon Gum-Tex into 6 oz. White fondant. Use fondant roller with Pink guide rings to roll out fondant 1-1/6 inch thick. Use smallest (2-1/2 inch) and second smallest (3-1/4 inch) snowflake cutters to cut out four snowflakes in each size. Cut out extras to allow for breakage. Place snowflakes in cornstarch-dusted large forming cups. Let dry overnight.
3Decorate snowflakes one day in advance. Prepare royal icing following mix directions. Use tip 1, a cut disposable decorating bag and White icing to pipe line and dot details on snowflakes. Let set, about 30 minutes. Use decorator brush and a mixture of equal portions of White Pearl Dust edible accents/lemon extract to paint snowflakes. Let dry overnight.
4Prepare batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool three 6 inch cake layers. Level, fill and stack layers on cake circle for three-layer cake, 6 inch high. Use spatula and decorator icing to ice cake.
5Use fondant roller with Orange guide rings to roll out Red fondant 1/8 inch thick. Cover cake with Red fondant.
6Roll a log of Red fondant, 1/4 inch diameter by 19 inch long. Use a damp brush to attach to bottom border. Prepare thinned fondant adhesive (1-1/2 inch ball White fondant mixed with 1/4 teaspoon water). Use a decorator brush and fondant adhesive to attach snowflakes to side of cake.
