If you’re looking for a cute – and totally doable – way to whip up a little extra holiday magic for your loved ones, I’ve got just the thing! Inspired by the adorable penguin & polar bear Coca-Cola commercials from a while back, I thought it would be fun to make a playful “snowy” cake for the holidays and top it with penguins and polar bears that were getting along swimmingly. We’re talking holiday magic, after all!
One of the best things about this cake, though, is how EASY it is to make. I used a Coca-Cola cake recipe that only requires 5 ingredients, then covered it in “snowy peaks” of store-bought vanilla frosting. This is one of my favorite ways to frost a buttercream cake, and you don’t have to be a dessert pro – AT ALL – to make it look good. Plus, it requires you to be extra generous with the frosting, which is always a bonus in my book!
BAKE + CRAFT + PARTY
Read on for full details on… 1) the cake recipe, 2) the frosting technique, 3) the cake topper, and 4) a coordinating “snowy fun” tablescape design, should you want to extend this look beyond the cake plate. Oh ya… there are free printables too!
P.S. I’ve been working on creative content for Coca-Cola quite a bit this year, but this is the first time I’ve tried out their mini cans. They made such a fun addition to the matching party table! Why is everything so cute when it’s mini sized? ;)
