For my sister’s New year’s party I wanted to make a cake of a snow landscape on new years eve. It needed to be on two levels so that there was a clear distinction between sky and ground. Most important things were the snow and then the fire works, which turned out more difficult to make than anticipated. Also this cake taught me not to use sugar paste close to its expiry date as it was very dry and gave me some problems trying to cover the cake as it broke very easily. But all in all, I am reasonably happy with the result.
The cake itself was a chocolate cake filled with raspberry and mango mousse, drenched in Kahlua and glögg and covered with coffee butter cream.
