Hi, Everyone! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and having fun decorating, Christmas shopping, cooking and baking seasonal recipes, spending time with friends and family, continuing beloved holiday traditions and making some new memories! I love that we have a desire to make everything extra special at Christmas time, and wish we stuck to it all year round! It’s the thoughtful little details that make things more special, and I have a really cute and easy way for you to Christmasify (if that’s even a word!) any plain cake and turn it into a Christmas dessert!
Here are my Sugary Snowflake Gingerbread Squares! I made a gingerbread cake (using a box mix – that’s how easy this can be if you need something really fast!) and simply stenciled snowflakes onto it using some powdered sugar! If you don’t have a stencil, or it’s not the right size, you can make one like I did! You can either do this by using a snowflake craft punch (I have a Martha Stewart one that works great!) or you can just print out a snowflake shape and cut it out and use that as your stencil. Place your stencil where you want it and sprinkle the confectioners’ sugar on top, then remove the stencil carefully. You could also add some edible glitter to the confectioners’ sugar to make the snowflakes shimmery!
Happy Baking, Everyone!
Oh my! Those look decadent. I love the little snowflake on each one. They would be great at a party.
Thank you, Kelly!
This is the cutest idea! I love your snowflakes, and those little cakes look extra special now. You have me wanting gingerbread…Yum!
Thanks! It’s such an easy way to dress up a simple cake! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
I love gingerbread but find the cookies hard – this is a perfect solution for me. Soft and yummy!
I love gingerbread too, especially at Christmas time! Thanks for stopping by!
So pretty. I love gingerbread. I usually make cookies for my tree. Thanks so much for visiting Olive Out.
I started to salivate when I saw these. lol Those look very yummy! I love gingerbread! Neat idea with the snowflake stencil. 🙂

Delicious recipe, Maria! My favorite part of the holiday is baking all those goodies.
What a beautifully simple yet effective idea, just perfect for the season.
