Christmas Snowmen Cupcakes
fresh carrot (or orange/red fondant)
Zappo sour string lollies
12 cupcakes of any flavor (lightly iced in buttercream so the fondant can stick) I used fruit cake
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!
