The idea of this recipe is great! I've tried several different versions and found that people liked it more when I used white cake instead of yellow. I used vanilla pudding and added some white chocolate chips to the mix. It just gives a hint of white chocolate in the cake without over sweetening it. The snowflakes were too time consuming for me so I melt the white chocolate in a glass bowl. Let it cool and harden. After I frost the cake I take a metal spoon and chip the white chocolate off in flakes and sprinkle all over cake. It looks just as pretty and is actually easier to cut the cake and eat it! Thanks for the recipe!
This cake tastes amazing! Who would have thought by putting pudding in the mix would make it so moist! The only thing that I had a problem with was the snowflakes. It started out horrible! Chocolate was everywhere because I didnt let it cool for 5 minutes so when you make this cake..LET THE CHOCOLATE COOL! lol Also dont make skinny snowflakes!! They are to fragile to move..all of mine broke! Other then the rough start to the snowflakes this is a really easy cake to make and looks beautiful and tastes even better then it looks!
Icing was very, very unstable. Not sure what i did wrong, but followed directions perfectly. Kept adding icing sugar, and still icing was way too runny. Snowflakes were easy to make but difficult to get off waxed paper. Unfortunately i could not take to my mom's for Christmas dinner! If you are going to make this, do it ahead of time.
I love this cake. It is easy to prepare and impressive on its presentation. I have made the snowflakes, made hearts for valentines day, clovers for St patrick's day etc. Your imagination is the limit. I use lots of jam for the center . Try it you'll love it!
This is the best! I usually substitute sugar free pudding mix, and I use cheesecake pudding mix in the cake and lemon pudding mix in the frosting.I have also added 8oz of softened cream cheese in the frosting to make it a little stiffer. This flavor combination is wonderful with rasberry perserves between the layers!! I also use "Ideal" low calorie, substitute confectioners sugar in the frosting. You can't taste the difference at all! And it saves on using so much sugar.
