Well, we have yet again ventured into the “What’s New Cupcake” book and found some amazing snowmen cupcakes wonderfully designed for a snowy day such as today! So if you have some time, and a kiddo (or two) to help out, I think you have just found your next cupcake craft adventure.
Snowman Cupcakes – adjusted recipe from “What’s New Cupcake”
1 – Make your favorite cupcake recipe (it would work better with white cake, but chocolate is a much bigger hit in our house, so we went with chocolate)
2 – Let them cool completely – overnight if possible
3 – Frost all cupcakes with white whipped frosting.
4 – Dip and roll the cupcakes into a bowl filled with sugar. (Our daughter LOVED this part) This gives a very sparkly snowy feel on the top of the cupcake
5 – Insert regular sized chocolate chips in the cupcake for the eyes
6 – Next the nose – the book calls for orange jelly candy cut into triangles, I opted for candy corn for the noses it was a lot easier and I didn’t have to cut it.
7 – Insert mini chocolate chips for the mouth
Now, there are other things you can do like creating a hat for the snowman using thin chocolate wafers, but I couldn’t figure that one out as they kept breaking on me, so our daughter and I decided these 24 cupcakes were aok without hats. 🙂
It was really fun to do and they were a hit with the kids and mom’s at the neighborhood cookie party!
Enjoy, and have fun!
