Several years ago, I made a winter scene cake with an ice skating pond.  For the pond I made a batch of Jello Jiggler recipe - I lined a 9x13 pan with plastic wrap (smooth it as much as possible) and poured the jello jiggler mix to about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.  Refrigerate until very firm.  Cut out a pattern for your pond/lake/rink on paper.  Carefully lift out the "jiggler" - keep it on the plastic wrap.  Use your pattern to cut out the shape you need - lift away the extra, leaving just the shape.  Use the paper pattern to decide on the best place to put on the cake (cake should be fully frosted - I created a slight depression in the frosting where the pond was going).  I used a cake lifter to slide the jiggler onto the cake - sprinkle a little cold water on the lifter (or spatula) to make sure it'll slide off.  Dampen your fingers with cold water before pressing it into the cake (lessens fingerprints).


I used a Blueberry flavor for a blue water color.  You could use other flavors - maybe the pina colada - which is white - and use a little food coloring to make the color you want.


Hope this helps.

Maybe what you have in mind requires hard candy, but most snow scenes don't use that. In other words, it's not required. This may not at all be what you have in mind, but this is what I mean:
