I have kind of a weird shower cake to make and am stumped. It's a round (probably 9 in) for a wedding shower. The theme is "winter nature"??? The centerpieces are silver trees that look kind of icy? Does that make sense. They want the cake to match, maybe with branches/white flowers on the sides. She just said no colored flowers, something elegant. Any ideas? It's going to be buttercream but I can use fondant accents.

I was thinking something with the large sanding sugar but am not sure.

Here are some icy fir trees that might work for the top of the cake:

Some of the Christmas cakes in the gallery have very interesting side details which you might be able to incorporate into your design.

I've always liked the blue cake prterrell posted.

Here's something

I think it would be pretty & elegant to apply the sparkling sugar & use RI snowflakes. Just make sure you make extras for breakage if you go that route.
