The nice thing about winter weddings is that we are able to go to town with the frost, snow and ice details on our cakes.
It's a nice way to bring in a seasonal theme to your cake and lots of sparkle at the same time.
The wedding cake below had a 'frozen pond' on the top where the bride and groom topper stood (we are waiting for a picture from the happy couple) you can just make out the snow drifts on the top.
The snowflakes were covered in fairy dust in a range of colours from silver, blue and pink.
The sparkle on these elements comes from a special food safe product this is not the same type of glitter that you get at the dollar store!
It would not be suitable to cover a whole cake with the glitter because although it is made for food products and food safe, it isn't a 'food product' per se. To give an example, birthday cake candles are food safe. They are created to go on and come into contact with a food item. If some of the wax drips on the cake it is not a problem, it can be eaten. However, it would not be recommended to cover a cake with candle wax as it is not a food product. The same principle applies to metallic finishes on cakes, it's all edible, but you wouldn't really want to cover your whole cake in it.
