Snowglobe Cake

I just had to show off the cute Snowglobe Cake I made for our big family Christmas Eve celebration - - it's more of a "winter theme" so I thought it's still okay to post about it in January...

So cute, right?!?  you know, I have a thing for snowglobes - like I have over 100.  Trevor gets me one every year - this year's was super cute - when it's wound up, the Santa dances and the musicbox plays "Santa Claus is Coming to Town"

Anyways, when I saw this cake from Taste of Home I knew it was meant for me to make:
Holiday Snow Globe Cake Recipe

But I went the easy route - I just used a cake mix (it was even funfetti - it's all I had!).  The small fish bowl I used was so small that when I cut the cake to the right size to look like a snowglobe base, the cake was pretty small.  So then I took all the leftover cake pieces I had to cut off and turned it into cakeballs.  For the figurine inside, I just grabbed a snowman salt shaker I happen to have sitting around.  So cute - cuter in person than in the picture (it's hard to take a picture of a fish bowl - who knew!  lots of reflection...)
