Some treats I spotted recently at the store inspired me to create this Christmas Holiday Cake, featuring a sweet winter scene complete with trees, logs, and mushrooms. This would be the perfect project to do with children because it’s easy and fun to make.

I started by baking three chocolate cake layers and then filling and frosting them.

The fun part is the candy: Duplo Wafer Log Candies – Meiji Chocorooms – sugar cones, and snowy icy sprinkles.

I lightly frosted the cones by holding them with my fingers inside the cone and spreading the frosting on the cone with my other hand, followed by a dusting of green sugar sprinkles.

For a smaller tree, I broke off the bottom of a cone to make it smaller.  Then, I frosted and sprinkled as I had done on the larger cone and then I placed the logs and trees all about the top of the cake.

and scattered a few chocorooms around the base.

And here comes the fun part: Snowy, icy sprinkles!

Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
