Hello my Cake Central peeps,

So my best friend is getting married and chose this cake for me to make.  The only thing I'm questioning is how do I get that "snowy" texture?  HELP!!!

one way would be to twirl some coconut in the blender or food processor and then smush it on the sides all over -- 'course if they hate coconut....

now i've never done this but a random idea you could test if they hate coconut -- use white chocolate -- melt it and spread it out thin then get it cold and break it up somehow without it melting and apply it -- but i would do this outdoors in the cold or in the walk-in otherwise you will have melty spots -- that is a definite maybe -- but i sure hope they like coconut or you find an easier way --

glazed panko? that's another definite maybe -- just use a confectioner's sugar & water or milk glaze and drizzle over a bowl of panko and mix continuously -- maybe have someone pour the drizzle for you -- y'know how they coat candy in those big hoppers?

maybe :)

you probably would want to crush the panko -- or maybe try food processed rice krispies? 

i hope someone else pops up with a great non-coconut idea but dessicated coconut would do it like crazy -- but please do update on what works for you 

best to you

I did a wedding cake with this look.  I used Wilton's sugar crystals.  My cake was iced with American buttercream.  I let it chill a little (but not firm).  Then I poured the sugar crystals into my hand and rubbed them up the side of the cakes.  I had parchment paper underneath to catch the extra sugar, which I could use again.

I have used grated almond bark or white chocolate.  I usually just use my zester and do it right on the cake.

Thank you all so much for your advise, I really do appreciate it!!   I went with the almond bark because it seemed like the easiest and quickest way being I only had 24 hours to make this cake and a sheet cake.  But I am definately keeping all your ideas for future use.  Thanks again!!!  =D

Here is the end result.
