Well, if it isn't snowing enough for you to make a snowman outside - I've got the goods for you to make this snowman INSIDE! It won't melt, but it will disappear...I promise.
He's so very cold, I made him ear muffs. Edible ear muffs of course, complete with a red licorice band! Oh, and what about his pointy carrot nose?
Totally edible - it's cake!
He's so fluffy and stays so warm with his fondant scarf!
Here's how, if you don't already know!
Supplies needed - 34" red licorice rope and white paper cone cup.
Bake a 10" cake, 4" cake and a cone shaped cake.
Spray the cone shaped paper cup with Bakers Joy and place in cupcake holder to bake.
Add cake mix and bake until done.
Cut the 4" cake in half for the ear muffs.
Make white butter cream frosting and smooth a thin layer over the cake.
Add additional frosting making peaks with an offset spatula.
Sprinkle with sanding sugar and glitter.
Measure the licorice rope around the top of the snowman and cut to fit.
Add a dollop of frosting to the cake board and attach licorice rope.
Top with one half of the 4" cake.
Using a grass tip, pipe red strings on the ear muff to make it fluffy.
Set the pointed cake on the snowman cake. Add orange frosting to a decorating bag fitted with an extra large round decorating tip. Starting at the bottom, begin swirling around the pointed cake until you reach the top. Drag a toothpick through the cake, making a design for the mouth.
Pipe black frosting over top the line and add pink luster dust for the cheeks.
Swirl with a clean paint brush or spatula.
Roll out a 12" piece of red fondant. Cut small white strips and add to top of fondant.
Cut out a 2" x 10" strip of striped fondant for the scarf. Cut another piece of fondant 2" x 8" with the bottom covered with white stripes and fold over the top. Cover the top of the scarf with white stripes. Cut tiny slits at the bottom of the 8" scarf for the fringe.
Curve and attach to the bottom of the cake.
Softy The Sno Man!
He'll melt in your mouth...
NOT in your hands!
