A red velvet snow cake with snowman macarons! From Raspberri Cupcakes
(I'm back up and running after my laptop was incapacitated - again - last week. A severed cable and now even keys are falling off. If this continues, reading my posts is going to be like playing Wheel of Fortune without the fabulous prizes.)
We haven't had any snow here at the coast this winter, unless you count one day in early December where it fell in huge, fluffy clusters and mostly all melted as soon as it hit the ground, and then got warm in the afternoon and made a lot of excited kids really crabby. After some freakishly warm days it's been properly chilly this past weekend if you consider -1° cold. The English seem to think because I'm Canadian that -1° is like spring to me. No way, cold is cold! Especially by the sea, it gets in your bones and apparently makes you really whiny. Except for the guys wearing shorts and a t-shirt, you know, because the sun is shining.
This morning there was frost on the grass and since that's the closest thing to snow right now, how about some snow cakes?

And it turns out there's a movie called Snow Cake - who knew? Possibly everyone but me. It's Canadian (so probably not, then) and stars Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman. I would be very disappointed if I watched it and there was no cake to be found.
Here are some interesting keywords I found on Cinematic Intelligence Agency that are associated with it:

What? Lumber yes, cake no?!
