I Had Better Work Quickly!

@much2say suggested that I put a red ball on top of the "Bird Bath Mountain" we have in our front yard. I did put a red ball on top, and the mountain of snow does look like an ice cream sundae. Then, @JudyEv said that it would look nice with some sprinkles on top. Oh, dear. Now, I have to find some sprinkles!! As for chocolate sauce, I haven't a clue what to use for that. I had better work fast because it is now 40F (4.4 C) at 10 a.m. in the morning, and that temperature will continue to rise.

Used motor oil for chocolate, although you probably don't have any of that laying around...

We actually do, but I bet I would end up making one huge mess.

So did you use bird seed as the sprinkles? I imagine by now this is a swimming pool for them thar birds, did you tell them to bring swim suits?

It will be a swimming pool soon. The red ball has slid down the side due to melting. It was fun while it lasted.

Thanks @much2say .... I wonder, would birds sink down into the snow? It's been a long time since I've seen snow.

Yes, the chocolate sauce would just create a big mess. It is shrinking as I write, so it won't be around much longer.

It occurred to me that you can try some of those tree twigs in the background. Pieces of those on top of the snow will look fine

For the sprinkles some paper confetti. For the chocolate sauce it's harder, the suggestion of JJ sounds pretty good, add a few drops of brown color.
