We celebrated my cousin-in-law’s 40th birthday party at Tahoe this year. Although the only snow that could be found was on my cake, we all had a wonderful time hiking, skating, eating, and hanging out nonetheless.
I made a snow hill for him with rice crispies trees and pretzel trunks. I also made little decade flags where 40 was at the top and 50 was over the hill. I placed the candles next to each flag, representing each decade he has reached. For the “fresh, fallen snow” effect, I sprinkled confectioners sugar at the very end.
