Adorable Snowman Cupcakes

In Abigail’s class, they celebrate half birthdays for those kids who have summer birthdays. Abby falls into that category, so today I took cupcakes to help her celebrate. I have wanted to do snowman cupcakes all winter. The great thing about snowman art is that you can continue it throughout January and February. I didn’t have time to do these with Abby yesterday, but I was able to have Kenzie help me this morning.

 

First came the baking. Abby loves Funfetti Cake – who doesn’t?! I love my little sous chefs. I have a number of cake recipes I love, but it was the half-birthday girl’s choice. 

I made up the buttercream frosting (which yielded compliments from the teachers and kids), and Kenzie was able to assemble all the hats. It was a quick tutorial for her, and she was able to do all of them by herself. I came up the idea to use Rolo minis and Nabisco 100 calorie Oreo thin crisps for the hats. We just used some of the frosting to adhere them together. 

I then frosted the cupcakes with a large round tips and a swirl motion moving from the outside of the cupcake in. 

Next it is time to assemble the face. As you can see, it consists of candy corns and candy eyes. These eyes can be found in in the cake section of a craft store. Our grocery store is also selling them now, which makes things very convenient. I know I have readers in other countries and small towns, so I want to make sure to give you an Amazon link. 

 
As you can see, Kenzie was a super star at assembling the faces also. 
 
The last step was to put these snowmen cupcakes in their custom made snowflake cupcake liners. I originally gave you the link to this printable when I made my paisley cupcakes and the DIY homemade cupcake liners. The concept is that you can take your own 8.5″ x 11″ paper of any design, and you can print out cupcake liners to match any theme. Here is the printable for the template. The template has tabs, but I think it is easier to just cut off the tab and tape the ends together. 
 
It was fun to go to Abby’s class and watch the kids get so excited about this special treat. They loved it.
