Winter is almost in full swing and with the icy and blustery weather making it’s way around us in the UK at moment we’ve got quite the cake for you to re-create at home! Our fun and festive Melting Snowman Cake is not only quick and painless to make, but it can even be adapted so that you can decorate it with the kids over the holidays! You can even set out lots of different sweets and candies and just leave them to let their creativity do all the work. Why not head on over to our FREE tutorial via the Craftsy.com blog for more!
Decoration-wise we love the idea of little fondant ear-muffs nestled onto the head in place of a knitted bobble hat. Some other adorably festive ideas would be to use chocolate coated pretzel sticks for twig arms, add a fondant robin perched on top of the head, wrap a sugar paste / fondant scarf around your snowman’s face or add some extra customisation with different colors.
Just in case you need some extra tips or ideas why not read our posts on repairing fondant, how to make the perfect cake paint (if you need to add some lovely painted elements this is perfect for you!) or if you’re going to carve a ball shaped cake rather than use a hemisphere/dome tin then our tips and handy tools for sculpting cake may help!
For a festive cake decorating party fit for children (and big kids aka grown-ups) why not pre-ice your snowman with the board, melted snow and hat before supplying lots of mini cookies and candies with some royal icing and to the table for guests to decorate with!
Adding a knitted look to winter inspired cakes needn’t be a chore full of silicone moulds and matching up sections of sugar paste / fondant. In our Melting Snowman Cake tutorial we share a quick and easy technique that helps mimic the look of cosily knitted items!
