I love and adore my daughter, but I do not trust her with a jar full of liquid and glitter. So she and I created a snow-free Nativity scene using a cake stand, nativity set and fibre-optic Christmas trees and snow that I got from Poundland.
I used the cake stand as a template to cut out the fabric snow as a base for the scene. In order to insert the trees, I cut slits from the edge to the rough location of the tree. This hid the wires, the tree base and battery pack.
Once we were happy with the trees, Dimples had to place the Baby Jesus and other Nativity characters (to stand them on the the snow, I found I needed to cut little slits so that they were standing on the cake plate rather than the snow.)
We sprinkled liberally with glitter and stuff and cover with your cake dome (in this case a large mixing bowl, since the actual cake dome didn’t fit over the trees. Lesson learned.)
