It was my birthday on Saturday and Kirsten and I made some cupcakes. I've been wanting to make these adorable snowman cupcakes ever since I saw them in my fabulous Martha Stewart cupcake book and thought this was a great excuse. These were so much fun to make. Kirsten helped me make the snowmen and she had such a great time. I'm pretty proud of the outcome and think they look pretty similar to Martha's in the book, although Martha wouldn't be caught dead using a boxed cake mix like I did. A girl's got to cut corners sometimes. Here's how I made them:
What you'll need:
1 box chocolate cake mix plus ingredients to make - or make your own
1 can white frosting - or make your own
1 bag large white marshmallows
orange swedish gummy fish
To make the snowmen:
This snowman wears a fine winter hat: a chocolate-covered mint beret. His plump figure is two marshmallows -- cut a slice off the top one and squish to make it smaller. Dabs of icing hold parts together. His eyes are chocolate sprinkles (poke holes first with a wet toothpick), and his nose is cut from a gummy fish.
1. bake cupcakes according to box directions and let cool completely.
2. frost the cupcakes with white frosting
3. place one snowman on each iced cupcake
