Snowflake help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I was asked to make a cake with pinecones and snowflakes.  Any suggestion on the snowflakes.  I have seen posts regarding molds and never tried these before.  I was thinking of purchasing the snowflakes but think I would rather make them so I can use on other cakes I make.  This is for a wedding so I want them to look nice and neat.  I am worried if I make them out of royal they wont.


Thanks in advance I appreciate it!

Here is a white chocolate snowflake I made using a plastic mold.  I dusted it with silver luster dust to give it a little shine.  I find the molds really easy to work with.  If you didn't want to use chocolate you can also fill the mold with buttercream and let it set up in the refrigerator.

You won,t regret purchasing pme showflake cutters They come in 3 sizes. Made them for my sisters b/c in January. Sprinkled show white disco dust on them. Beutiful. They were made from g/p. She took them off before she cut it. hth

i pipe mine out of chocolate--i just can't get around the fact that the choco melts in your mouth like snowflakes

 

and granted my internal style is def shabby chic so that 'handcrafted' look of the piping works for me

 

but it's a thought for you--just place waxed paper over different patterns & pipe--no two are alike!!!

 

come on work with me here icon_biggrin.gif snowflakes are a shabby chic-ers paradise decoration!

 

you can get them pretty delicate too and still be sturdy

 

you could add some of those teensy tiny non-pareilietls however you spell it

and/or sprinkle with blue/white/opal/silver/gold sanding sugar for that icy effect--sticks right on there

 

you could use bigger non-parelieiouses to set on the points 

 

i love piped choc snowflakes
