GIVE this scenic dessert a whirl, and it won't be long before folks start drifting over for a piece! The mild spice cake from Ruth took on a playful shape as soon as Crafting Traditions' cooks got hold of the recipe. They formed the top and base of a snow globe using ordinary round and loaf baking pans—ones you likely have in your own kitchen. So go ahead and flavor a celebration in the same way...then get ready for a blizzard of grins from guests!
