Christmas Snowmen Cupcakes

I am a huge fan of Christmas and believe that it's not complete without an abundance of Christmas-themed sweets. These little melting snowmen are perfect for you bloggers in the Northen Hemisphere who luckily get to experience a perfect white Christmas! It's like living in a snowglobe, right? I'm jealous!












Ingredients

white fondant
black fondant
fresh carrot (or orange/red fondant)
mini M&m's
Zappo sour string lollies
12 cupcakes of any flavor (lightly iced in buttercream so the fondant can stick) I used fruit cake 

Method
Roll white fondant out about 3cm-5cm thick. Consider rolling the edges of the fondant out thinner to look like the snowman is really melting away.  Cut out circle shape and place on top of the lightly-iced cupcakes.  Now roll white fondant into little balls for the snowman's head.  Once it is the right shape (not too big because the stringy lolly needs to wrap around his head) stick it top of the fondant-covered cupcake.  You can use royal icing or buttercream to help you, but I didn't need it.  Stick his head slightly off center because you will need room for the scarf and buttons.  Now cut the stringy lolly to your desired thickness.  Using scissors, snip the ends of the stringy lolly to create a scarf effect.  Wrap the lolly scarf around the snowman's head.  Place 2 mini M&M's under the scarf. You can use an icing to help you stick, but again, I didn't require any.  Serve!

I am sharing these on Sweet as Sugar Cookie's Sweet for a Saturday #45 link up. Share your treats there too!

  8. Those are the cutest cupcakes ever! We had 10 cm of snow here the other night, so all the schoolyards are full of giant snow boulders the kids made. They are melting now, so look a bit sad. I love a white Christmas, but I spent one holiday in Australia and that was such a new and gorgeous experience for me.

  11. Yes, we usually have snow on the ground at Christmas time. I like that, too. The cupcakes would be a wonderful surprise for my kids after they come inside frozen after hours in the snow. So cute.

  21. I love snow. I used to hate it so I moved to Arizona- the desert. After a while I hated how hot it was sometimes 120F. Now I love the snow. I have an appreciation for it. But just the same, I think I would rather be living in Australia.

  26. These are too adorable! They look so cute! I am hoping that we stave off snow for a while longer. I was out putting out Christmas lights and raking leaves today and it was about 57 degrees so very nice. I had to get the leaves done before it snows later this week. I am going to have to make some cute melting snowmen for the little ones on the day it snows. They would love these.

  31. Those look too good to eat Brittany. They are perfection. I am pleased to report, no snow here yet.

    Thanks for submitting it to Bookmarked recipes. I am posting it a day late this month, so I don’t have to post on Christmas day. Have a great Christmas xx
