So in case you missed it, the south got a huge blizzard this last Wednesday which dumped 14 inches of snow. Today they forecasted more snow. Oh goody. I love it for a day and then I’m ready for it to be gone. However, I was inspired today to make a SNOW CAKE. And let me tell you how fun it was. It was F-U-N! I felt like Edward Scissorhands sculpting a masterpiece, snow flying everywhere by the knife I was wielding. I think if I lived in a colder climate, I would be an snow sculptress.
Anyway, onto the project. I am riding on the matchstick wave and created a cute little cake topper thingy. Just print out my design (PDF download) and cut into a small strip and hot glue each end onto a matchstick. You could also use your matchsticks to make cake flags.
The quote is french, by philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau – “Aimer et être aimé sera la grande affaire de toute notre vie” and translates “To love and be loved will be the greatest event in our lives.”
Oh and the cake is still in my backyard if you want a piece. :) And yes, that is actual snow falling in the picture above.
