How To Make It

    Prepare frosting:  In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter, vanilla, and milk on medium low speed until combined.  With the mixer on low, slowly add powdered sugar, beating on low until just combined. Add a few drops of blue coloring. Increase speed to high and beat for one minute.

    Make snow trees:  Melt almond bark according to package directions.  Dip cones in the melted candy and place standing up on a sheet of wax paper.  Drizzle additional candy on the cones to give them texture.  Let sit until hardened.

  • 3

    Place one cake, top side down, on a platter.  Frost the top, then place another cake on top, top side down.  Frost entire cake.

  • 4

    Line bottom perimeter of cake with mini marshmallows.  Make icicles around top perimeter of cake with M&Ms.  Mound rock candy on the top of the cake, towards the back, then place your snow "trees" in the center.
