The 'Public Lives, Secret Recipes' blog recently put together a tutorial for making a beautiful snow globe cake. This time of year, it can be a lot of work to decorate the home and cook enough food for friends and family. This recipe cuts down on the amount of preparation necessary with a dessert that doubles as holiday decor.
Although the cake may look complex, it is actually fairly simply to prepare. The base of the snow globe is a layered cake that is frosted and topped with coconut shavings. To create the snow globe, simply turn a small bubble bowl upside down and place a Christmas ornament inside. To finish the cake, you can add a flat bow and some additional coconut shavings.
The end result is an edible snow globe cake that doubles as a form of festive Christmas decor.
