Enjoy this delicious White Christmas Cake that my friend Nicole from the Sweet Peony has shared with us. (this blog no longer exists).
With the holidays in full swing, I knew I had to make something seasonal for y’all. I spent much of my life in the South, and now live in Los Angeles, so I have never woken up to a White Christmas (even when we lived in upstate New York for two years, we spent Christmas down South). What a sad life, I know.
I mean, seriously, what’s Christmas without snow? I blame this attitude entirely on Home Alone and pretty much every other Christmas movie ever made. Can you imagine It’s a Wonderful Life without snow? That’s what I thought.
Anyway, I figured that since I won’t be having a White Christmas this year, I needed to make my own winter wonderland. That’s how I came up with the idea for this cake.
The cake I chose to make is a fluffy vanilla cake. It’s a delicate white cake with the perfect crumb, and it is oh-so-fluffy. The frosting is a whipped vanilla frosting that is super light and airy, just like snow. It is the best vanilla cake I’ve ever had. Did you hear me? The best!
In hopes of making the cake look like a true winter wonderland, I topped the entire cake with white sanding sugar for a glistening snow effect. Then, I made some shimmery gum paste snowflakes that I placed on floral wire to give the illusion of falling snow. I have to say, I love the results! My husband did, too (only he’s complaining about starting to gain those Christmas pounds early).
Whether you’re looking for a beautiful holiday dessert or just dreaming of a White Christmas, try making this cake to share with your family and friends. And feel free to make it your own! Add a cute little snowman, a flocked evergreen or some red and green frosting around the base. After all, it’s your Christmas!
Thank you all for reading! And thank you again to Chef Dennis for letting me share this cake with you! Happy Holidays, everyone!
