Edible "snow"? NOT coconut!

I need "snow" to put around a snowboard cake, but can't use coconut. Any ideas?

Grated white chocolate comes to my mind. Good luck.

How about white sugar crystals? Or plain sugar? Powdered sugar? Fondant?

The only thing I can think of is that spray snow you can buy in the stores for windows at christmas time but it surely isn't non toxic food safe.What about finely grated white chocolate!

that's a tough one-- what about shaved white chocolate maybe mixed with a little P.S. to keep it from sticking together.--or white cotton candy. Hopefully someone else will have more ideas but HTH

Wilton has cake sparkles that look like ice when you put them on cakes.
Also, RI is used on gingerbread to make it look like snow.
How do you want it to look? Like a powdery snow?
Maybe mix the cake sparkles with conf sugar to get the effect.

Clear sugar confetti. It's edible and is translucent. I've used it on snowflakes before and it's really pretty.

It's just going to be on the cake board around the cake, so it looks like the snowboard is sitting in snow. So I want it to be kind of fluffy. I was planning on putting some of the clear sparkle on top of whatever I used to give it a fun kind of look. Thanks for all the ideas! I'll post the picture after delivery - tonight!!
