    I think it might work. You’d have to discuss it with your baker to see if they are able to pull it off.

    It kind of depends on how large your cake is. I think they will get lost under the layers. What about a blue flower? Like blue hydrangeas instead of the roses? Or you could get battery powered christmas lights and maybe hang them underneath like the icicle ones? Or! You could get blue and silver ornaments and scatter them underneath like the roses are, so it looks like your cake is supported by tons of ornaments. You could get them super cheap right after the holidays!

    Also consider the skill of your baker.  Those snowflakes are gonna be difficult and you don’t want a http://www.cakewreck.com

    I voted that I didn’t like the bells.  But my thought was that there is alot of white going on and just some blue, I would be worried the bells would get lost between the layers.  I love the snowflakes done in blue!

    @arenyth: oh I second the ornaments. I pulled these off of my tree but maybe something like this under the layers? I got two boxes of ornaments the silver came with glittery and shiny and the blue came with the shiny and flat lookin blue. I think they were like $5-10 at walmart for a pretty big box of them

    I think the ornaments could be awesome in the center!

    @missfireslayer: maybe silver tinsel and the ornaments on top? Just another idea!

    I think something like this would be pretty using the blue in a more subtle way. Blue snowflakes might look a little off, unless you’ve seen a picture of them and love them?

    Even something like this?

    Found just one with blue snowflakes!

    The bells are nice, but I really like the idea of incorporating ornaments – then you’ll have awesome keepsakes to hang on your Christmas tree each year:)

    I’m confused because when you mentioned bells on a winter cake, I was picturing Christmas bells, but the picture you posted is of the classic wedding bells. I think it would be very cute with Christmas bells! I personally like the all-white aspect of the cake, but if you’re into blue, go for it!!

    @kirabee: Ditto to this! I was thinking like, sleigh bells, which I think would be cute! And, I like the ornaments. And no, I don’t think it would be too much to use them on both the tables and the cake. 🙂

    ETA: this is what came to mind:
