Wow - when I asked you guys to help me find the best Winter Sweets out there, I clearly underestimated how seriously you take your CW duties. Excellent work, evil henchmen/women/children!
Due to the overload of submissions, I had to be pretty selective in choosing which ones to feature. A lot of you sent in some really adorable cupcakes, but I stuck with cakes to whittle down the choices. I also looked for ones that fit the theme best - and, of course, I only picked my personal favorites. (But that goes without saying, right?) So, without further ado, here are the best Winter Wonderland cakes the 'net (and you readers) has to offer. Enjoy!
Tonia (and many others) submitted this beauty from Dahlia's Custom Cakes:
Hagar R. found this sweet ice-skating fairy from a baker in Israel:
She's sitting on rock candy! The baker's name is Yud, of Yud Creative Pastry (fyi: the site is written in Hebrew).
Alex R-F found this wedding cake from Let Them Eat Cake:
Diana T. found this little guy who, believe it or not, was NOT made by a pro:
As you can see from the text, this was the baker's final project for her Wilton class. Now, I've taken all the Wilton classes, folks, and I can tell you they do NOT teach you this level of skill! So, Themie from Deviant Art, I tip my hat to you.
Sherry found one for you minimalists out there:
Simply exquisite. It's by Nicky of Small Things Iced, where she also has some drop-dead-gorgeous cupcakes.
Since I still have lots more Winter lovelies to share, I'll be continuing the Winter Wonderland theme through next Sunday. Check back then for more iced goodness, and stay tuned for your next Sweets assignment!
