Was your birthday boy or girl born during the cold winter months? Does he/she love to ski? Or maybe his/her birthday is taking place during the Winter Olympics? Whatever the cold weather connection, a birthday cake decorated with snow and ice is sure to add a festive chill to your celebration. Make your cake's white icing look more like snow by adding flake cocoanut; it makes great moguls! You can also create a ski slope by baking several rectangular cake layers, stacking them and then making a diagonal cut. Add skiier figurines that you can purchase at your local craft store. For cake pans specifically shaped for skiing, shop at companies like Wilton.
