The Beauty Department -- Double Rope Braid Bun. Pull hair into 2 ponytails side by side, section each into two and rope braid. Twist right rope braid counter-clockwise and in, then do the same with the left rope braid. Finish with hairspray.
This cake just looks like a winter forest! Black Forest Cake, recipe from A Tale of Two, (adapted from a What Katie Ate recipe). If I decide to have a winter wedding, having a mini cake like this for everybody would be pretty cool.
