I'm never at a loss for ideas. Really, I consider myself to be pretty creative, and have a background in graphic design. I have a new cake request though, that has me stumped. It sounds simple, but I just can't see it!

This customer wants a cake for her daughter's 1st anniversary. She wants to incorporate 2 things....red roses & snow. Apparently the day of the wedding there was a snowstorm, and the only accent color was red.

I work mainly in fondant, and I can do fondant roses, so no problem there. But how to incorporate snow? All that seems to pop into my head are "old school" red roses on a white cake. I need something more modern than that. Oh, and its a small cake. Probably a 6" round or maybe a heart.

Any ideas at all? Thanks in advance!

For something so small, that's harder....but what about red roses on a white cake and some snowflakes? I have the cutest punch cutter of 3 different snowflake sizes...you could pearl dust them to make them sparkly.

Or you could do snowmen with red hats and such...?

Okay, I don't consider myself creative at all but how about two snowmen on the cake dressed like bride and groom and the bride snowman is hold a bouquet of roses. Then you could put snowflakes around.

What if you made a 6" round, place it on top of a fondant circle, then gather the fondant and "tie" it with a fondant "ribbon", and have a small bouquet of red roses bursting out of the top of the "bag", and dust them with shaved white chocolate "snow"?

How about a red fondant covered cake, with the white fondant "drip" or overhang coming down over the top, to look like a snowdrift. Maybe even covering the white in sugar to make it sparkle. Then top with red roses?
