Snow Queen

For Snow Queen I wanted to create a castle out of a Danish Tower of Cake called a Kransekake as the Snow Queen's palace. I also wanted some cookies surrounding it with snowflakes drawn on them and I also wanted to try suspending some in the air.

Firstly I wanted to look at snowflakes and I found the work of Wilson Bentley who was the first known person to photograph snowflakes. Here's some examples:

I then made the butter cookies and decorated them based on these photographs:

After this I made the Kransekake, this slideshow also shows the making of the metal frame which I used to hold some of the cookies in the air:
And here's the results:
