This powders' Bitchin'

I used to try to find the "perfect" faux snow for Christmas decor.  Well, I never did find it--I figured out how to make my own.  While cutting a large styrofoam block for a cake base, I noticed how the flakes produced while cutting glistened in the light--just like fresh powder.  So, I broke out the cheese grater and went to town--and a couple of bloody knuckles later I had a heaping mound of the best lookin' faux snow I'd ever seen.  I used it last year in a grove of pine trees set up in the interior of a client's home.  You could not tell that it was not real snow!!!  It even has the same heft as wet snow.
