A snowy treat ^^

It's snowing already where my Big pig is. I miss him.

This cake is inspired by him, and his little brother, Baby pig. Baby has just been crowned the overall winner for this year's poetry slam, woot-woot! This is my interpretation of the snow-capped mountains in Missoula, Montana, in one of his winning poems. ^^

Snowy pillowy cheese cake (inspired by vivianpangkitchendapurcomelkusecubitgaramnor67)
1 pillowy soft cake
Cream cheese frosting (use your favorite recipe)
125g cheddar cheese, grated or shredded (white chocolate is a good idea too ^^)

1. If using a whole cake, halve the cake into 2 layers. Spread cream cheese frosting over one layer of cake. Top with the other slice of cake. Again spread cream cheese frosting all over to cover the cake.

2. Sprinkle/cover the cake all over with grated/shredded cheddar cheese.

As you can see, the cake looks nowhere like it was covered in snow, haha! This is the result of taking too many short-cuts.. and using ready-grated cheese. Don't be like me. :p

Now, had you not cheated, and had your cheese or white chocolate grated, you would have a beautiful "snow" covered cake like below ^^ Makes a wonderful festive gift for family and friends!

Well, this is as snowy as it is going to get in the tropics. ^^

Ooo your 3rd pic looks more like it as it is snowing already! Gorgeous looking with the grated cheese on top and am sure it taste absolutely delicious too. I love cheese..... those who get this sure to be eating with wide smile and ask for another slice too!

Haha! Now you know cannot use shortcuts for snow effect! ^^ But the cake topped with grated cheddar is very yummy ~ salty yet sweet. While the white chocolate topping is pretty, i could barely taste the white chocolate. So the topping is an open choice.. just use whatever you like ^^ both are very yums!
