One thing I have done is to get the buttercream as smooth as you can and then add some clear (?white) edible glitter. It's so pretty and really glistens. I'm sorry if this isn't what you're thinking - I'm just a "simpleton" when it comes to cakes and have to use what little talent I have! icon_redface.gif

If the cake is fondant covered, try powdered sugar. You can also use those tiny nonpareils.

How about shaved white chocolate. Use you cheese grater.

you can thinly spread royal icing and let it dry then with a scraper shave it and mix it with edible glitter or luster dust.

I think Duff from ace of cakes airbrushed his white fondant cake with luster dust to look like snow. Maybe you could dust it on buttercream.

How about you pour rolay icing? You can also make icicles using it.
