Quasi Natale… Almost Christmas…

It will be Christmas before I know it… there are so many things that I want to do,  and make for the season… some will be done,  and others I will cross off the list until next year.  Baking always tops the list,  followed by a little crafting.  This cake felt like both because making the snow globe almost felt like doing a craft… probably because nobody was going to eat it.  I made the globe by making a gelatin bubble like I had made for another cake,  put a figurine inside,  and placed it on a gingersnap cookie.  I knew that the globe would not be crystal clear because there needed to be several layers of gelatin,  otherwise it would have been far  too fragile.  I liked the effect,  it had a vintage look,  which is exactly what comes to mind when I think of snow globes.  I brought this Gingerbread Cheesecake to Dave and Yuri's dinner party… dinner was great,  we had lots of fun,   and we even did a craft,  which Jody organized and coincidentally happened to be a snow globe…  I will be making,  and trying to perfect this snow globe idea  for a Christmas/Birthday cake for Jim…
