And an interesting fact, by the way, that each snowflake is created under unique environmental conditions. No two falling snowflakes are exactly alike. Although they all have a hexagonal basic shape, their branches are always different. Just like the real snowflakes, each snowflake cookie is unique and has a unique shape.
