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!
The dough for these sugar cookies won't spread while baking, making if great for cookie cutters with intricate designs. They can also be drizzled with semisweet chocolate.—Kimberly DeWalt, Horseshoe Bend, Idaho
