One day recently on her show, she made a gingerbread cake in a 9 x 13 pan, cut it into cubes, dusted it with powdered sugar and placed a few deer and trees on top. I loved it! And you know I have the deer from my successful "Reindeer Games" cupcakes of 2008. When I was at the cake and cookie supply store the other day I noticed a bag of trees and knew that I had to try making my own woodland scene. And all of a sudden today I had an occasion to use them!
My nephew came home from Switzerland today after 3 months studying abroad and his parents hosted an impromptu welcome home party. I made this batch of brownies and brought them to the party to represent the the snow-filled forests in Switzerland. They looked adorable and were a big hit.
