Tis the season for Snow Globes! Make this cute Snow Globe Cake using purchased cake and 8″ glass bubble bowl. With a few ingredients and a little bit of time you can make and take this cake to every Christmas party of the season.
Start with a home made or purchased white coconut covered cake. Place cake on cake stand, add peppermint striped candy sticks to sides of cake with frosting ( so sticks will adhere to the sides of the cake). Center a Christmas ornament like a sleigh or other globe decor on top of cake. Position glass bubble bowl upside down over ornament, add a felt snowman hat and your good to go!
