Today’s Winter Gnomes cake design is SO cute, simple, and perfect for all sorts of winter occasions from winter birthday parties to Christmas!
Gnome themed home accessories are everywhere right now. Have you noticed? Gnome pillows, ornaments, blankets, wrapping paper, and more. We thought it would be fun to hop on the gnome trend also, and we are so happy with the result! I just love their bushy long white beards and funny hats ;0)
We hope that you enjoy the tutorial!
(In this tutorial, we decorated an 8 inch cake, frosted in fulffy vanilla buttercream. Feel free to also use our Classic Vanilla recipe or your frosting of choice.)
Fondant with Tylose Powder kneaded into it (or gum paste).
