There is nothing better than celebrating the cold winter with a variety of winter themed cake Brooklyn custom cakes. You may wonder what exactly you may be able to include for winter themed custom cakes. This could be due to the fact that most people often associate white to be the only shade that can be used to depict winter. You could also use icy blue, gold, silver, earthy browns, burgundy, dark blue and many other variations depending on the occasion. Using these combinations in the base as well as accents can give your cake an outstanding wintery look. Here are some easy tips for your winter themed custom cakes.
 
Nature
 
The best way to depict winter through your cake would be by simply using elements of nature in it. Use your creativity to incorporate pinecones, twigs and birds moderately spread through your cake. You can also use chocolate dust to represent the earth Twigs on the side of the cake will give a much required rustic accent to the cake.


 
Snow
 
Another element you can use for your custom cakes would be snow and snowflakes. Snowflakes can be used to give similar accents as you do with flowers. Make your snowflakes as lacy as possible. You can also go a step ahead and use crystal sugar and edible glitter to create icy daggers to perfect a winter wonderland look. Other than this, you can also use winter themed flowers such as evergreen, holly, pines and so on.
