Snow Cakes Attempt #2

These are color tests only (a learning experience nonetheless) so ignore the shape. I was trying to get them out of the house quickly before they melted and wasn't as concerned with the structure. The pink Kool-Aid worked perfectly as far as the hue I wanted. The yellow looked a little green so I'm not sure I like that as much. The downside is that it required too much water to mix with the snow to get the right color. This resulted in material resembling a slushee. The texture was nowhere near the "polenta cake" made earlier but that could have also resulted from more powdery snow and a warmer house. In any case, I am relieved that I only want to do one of these. I was getting overzealous with the last two images and just wanted to cover the bush in the front yard. They look like gumdrops from Candy Land through the front window.
