    Although the snowflakes are very pretty, I agree with another reviewer that it's easier to just pipe them on. The best part of this cake for me is the frosting and the jam in the middle. I will use both on other cakes. A tip for those who complain the layers slide: use toothpicks! My mother and grandmother never made a layer cake without toothpicks.

    This recipe was excellent the cake and frosting were absolutely delicious and easy to make. The white chocolate snowflakes added amazing detail and made the cake look so impressing. I've now taken the technic to add some flair to the red velvet cupcakes recipe I've done from this site. Adding initials, designs, etc in white chocolate to the tops of each cupcake. Excellent idea!
