Cake is Italian Cream with cream cheese filling. I frosted it in buttercream then used a stencil to "emboss" snowflakes on both tiers. This would have worked better with fondant but person ordering it didn't want fondant so this is what I got. Worked better than I expected. The black ribbon and bows are made of gumpaste. I then sprinkled the whole cake with crushed edible glitter for that sparkle.
