Tropical Snow Globe Cake

Snow Globe Cake

I made this cake for my friend Kelly of StudioDIY earlier this week. It was a last minute decision on my part, so it wasn’t totally perfect. I would’ve liked the cake to be a bit smaller or the gelatin ball to be a bit larger so that there wasn’t that gap between the globe and the cake’s edge, but oh well! I was still pleased with it though – especially with the flamingo (balancing a little modeling chocolate flamingo body on skinny little legs is not easy!).  I was also very happy to hear the survived the trip back to New Jersey with Kelly – I didn’t know she had a full day planned in the city after our date…and that she had taken the bus. In hindsight, a buttercream cake is the worst gift to give someone who has that type of day planned! ha

To make the globe and toppers, just follow along with my Retro Snow Globe Cupcake tutorial. Just remember, to make a larger gelatin snow globe like this one, you will need to add a bit more air to your balloons!

Speaking of flamingos and the holidays, I’m off to Florida in a couple of hours and cannot wait! I hope you have a very merry Christmas! Sending you all so much love!
