Snowmen, pine trees and snowy villages are all necessary for the perfect winter scene….and the perfect cake decoration too. If you’re making a selection of cupcakes or a big centrepiece for a winter celebration then I hope that some of these designs can give you some seasonal wintry inspiration.
Snow and winter go hand in hand, so this snowman cake from Wilton covered in ‘snow’ and little meringue snowmen is perfect for the season. Even if you don’t fancy making an entire cake, you could always try making just the snowmen instead!
It’s time to practice your piping skills because these winter foliage cupcakes from ZIBAKERIZ are covered in festive flora of all kinds.
I love a snowy village scene and this Gingerbread Village Cake from Bibby’s Kitchen looks beautiful. The gingerbread houses might take a bit of careful piping but they look so pretty sitting on the snow covered cake.
Speaking of winter scenes, I love how Constellation Inspiration uses clear hard sweets to make snow globe toppers for these cupcakes. It’s a very clever design and they even have little snowmen on the inside.
Winter is so much more than Christmas, but the Christmas bauble cake toppers from Cakes by Lynz really makes this cake a fantastic centrepiece. There are a few different bauble designs to make and you could make them in any colour combination you like.
One of my favourite things to do in winter is to curl up with a mug of hot chocolate, so these peppermint hot chocolate cupcakes from Barley and Sage really fit the bill. If you’re not a peppermint fan then you could always make these as straight chocolate instead.
Pine trees in the snow are quintessentially wintry and with some ice cream cones, green icing and a dusting of icing sugar, Preppy Kitchen turns a simple cake into the perfect winter scene.
