a snow scene to eat?
I want to make something for a work holiday part that is the following:
1) Not super expensive, can feed a crowd;
2) Is in one dish/bowl (or at least is not served in individualized dishes);
3) Has a holiday or winter scene to it (but avoids the religious emblems).
I'm thinking sweet, but I'm flexible.. One idea I had was a bid bowl of white chocolate mouse with shredded peppermint on top and a little skier. However, I searched online for inspired dishes and didn't find much.
Can anyone point me anywhere?
Not a snow scene but I like the crudite Christmas tree. Here is an example:
That one uses a lot of kale and leafy greens but someone on chowhound once posted another one that included mostly brocolli, carrots, and peppers. I like that one more but I can't find it.
random thoughts that might help:
- meringues = snowy peaks
- upside-down ice cream cones coated with white chocolate, whipped cream or frosting and topped with coconut = snowy trees
- flaked or shredded coconut or powdered sugar = snow
- fondant penguins & polar bears or marshmallow snowmen
- marshmallow igloos
- white chocolate bark with candy fish = a frozen lake
- snowflake-shaped cookies
- white cupcake tower with marshmallow or Italian meringue icing peaks and seasonal toppers
- cake pops decorated as snowmen
How about a coconut cake? You could use the top of the cake as a snow scene. A candy supply store could provide edible pine trees, maybe even candy figure skiers?
Or if you don't care if the scene is edible hot any one you with 10 year boys. Lots of scened you could do with Lego figures. My son has skiers, skaters, evergreen trees, etc.
