How to make a Winter wonderland cake

This process honestly is not hard to do! 

Bake off your favorite cake recipe (scratch or box mix it doesn’t really matter).

  1. Allow the cake to cool.
  2. Place cake in the freezer for 2-4 hours.
  3. Make a slightly less than stiff American buttercream frosting (it needs to hold its shape)
  4. Color the icing with gel colors (electric blue and white were my colors)
  5. Remove frozen cake from freezer and place on cake board.
  6. “Crumb coat” FROZEN cake
  7. Using a star tip (1M or 2D) drop down inside of piping bag.
  8. Fill piping bags with icing about half to 3/4 full
  9. Do a test squeeze to make sure the icing isn’t running out of the tip and that it is Stiff enough to hold its shape.
  10. Make your first squeeze and be creative!
  11. You want to remember to squeeze, release pressure and pull away. (Releasing pressure ensures you won’t have elongated designs)
  12. Squeeze-Release-pull Away
