Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

No, it's not snowing here. But that didn't keep us from making snowmen--the marshmallow kind.

Edible crafts are sometimes the most fun because you can simply eat your mistakes.

Our snowmen aren't perfect because they were kid-made--and kid eaten--and that's the best kind.

You need:
Cupcakes--overfill them a little so you have large rounded top
White frosting
Marshmallows
Toothpicks
An assortment of candy for decorating your snowman

We frosted the cupcake with extra at the front to make it look like the snowman was melting. We placed the marshmallow near the back of the cupcake and slanted it to give a melting appearance. We used a toothpick to hold it in place. On this snowman we used nerds for buttons. 

We used a small tube of Cake Mate Writing Gel to draw on the arms and hands.

We used writing gel to give our snowman blue eyes.

This snowman has a piece of candy corn for a nose. You could also use a small jelly bean, half a m&m, or other candy of your choice. We used frosting to attach the nose.
We gave him a starlight mint hat.

And a Peel and Pull scarf

Everyone made his or her cupcake a little different

Kaleb's snowman has m&m buttons, a jellybean nose and Oreo hat. 
Jasmine made a three marshmallow snowman.

She added coconut flakes for snow.

Ty made a three marshmallow snowman too.

He gave it a fruit roll up scarf.


We had another family over on New Year's Eve and we made snowmen again.

Do you wanna build a snowman? It's easy enough, just get out the marshmallows and get started.
