What is the best way to create snow effect on a fondant wedding cake? Just cover the cake with white fondant with bumps underneath and some luster dust is not enough. Also thought of grated cocconut but do not like that idea a lot. Thanks for your suggestions.

You could shave white chocolate. I've also pulsed powdered sugar in the food processor with some water to make it bigger. I think there is a snowboard in my pictures, that's what the snow is.

Thanks BREN28 and aligotmatt for your ideas. I dismissed powdered sugar apriori, thought it would be a mess... But snow on snowboard cake looks good! You just mix PS with water - what's the ratio? I wouldn't like PS just dissolve in water... icon_smile.gif . And how long does it stay like that?

It stayed for a while, I put it on the day before delivery, then delivered it, and it looked like that.
