This Christmas, I was in charge of desserts for our family gathering. I decided to do a tres leches cake which is a family favorite, hazelnut "kitkat" bars (another family fave) and a christmas cake in fondant. I did want to do a snow globe fondant cake from the beginning but the design I had in mind was too much work for the time I had left so I decided to go with this.
Santa hanging on...
The design is partly inspired by an actual snow globe I wanted to purchase. But since it's an unnecessary expense, I decided to just customize and make a cake inspired by it. The "globe" is a vase which I purchased in a local craft store. All decorations are made out of gumpaste. I had a lot of fun making this cake. I wish I had made Santa's bum a little bigger though! He was pretty lean.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas! And may you all have a happy and prosperous New Year.
