I got a call from my very awesome chiropractor wondering if I would do a cake for her father's milestone birthday. As a gift, the whole family was sending him to Alaska. He does not know this yet, so this little cake is going to confuse him initially. Which is awesome!
This a vanilla cake, with vanilla frosting, then the crystal snow is vanilla sugar I've made. I love the vanilla sugar! The trees are pretzel rods, then frosted using a star tip. My son thought the trees were pretty cool, but pointed out I needed to add pinecones. Then told me everything he knows about pinecones...which is actually quite a bit. With the size of this cake, I opted to not add pinecones, I don't think people would know what they were.
For some reason, I absolutely love this little bear. It's rough and simple, but there's something about it I really like.
