I woke up this morning to 6 inches of snow and it has been steadily falling for the past 5 hours. My sister, Rachel, and I went out and built a snowman (I don't think I'd ever made a REAL snowman...with a carrot nose and everything?) and then decided to make snow cakes and see whose we liked better when they were finished. She went to one side of the yard, I went to the other, and we got to work!
This was my finished "cake":
Holly berries, holly leaves, and cedar branches! I only put the holly berries on the front of the cake because I had to take my bulky gloves off to place the berries on...and they kept popping back off. I also wanted to find something I could use for a cake stand, to get it off of the snow and give it some more color, but I couldn't find anything in my part of the yard.
Then I went to see Rachel's "cake"...
She used the bird bath for her cake stand! I was rather jealous of it. Not to mention her little heart topper is adorable.
The verdict? I liked hers better and she liked mine better.
What do you think? Which snow cake do you like better?
