Snowman Cupcakes Decorating Ideas
Decorating baked goods is so much fun! But when you get to make the cutest little snowman, it means that it’s holiday time for sure.
Make certain that you gather up the family to have fun decorating. It’s a really great way to bond. We love sitting around the table, baking up some fun treats, and then decorating them as well. Then when we compare, they all look so different but so tasty!
Gather up some of the needed supplies below to get started. You’re going to have so much fun!

Snowman Cupcake Instructions
I baked the cupcakes using our favorite cake mix, I’m not fancy, we’re completely happy with the boxed version.
We iced the cupcakes when they were cooled, I had whipped cream on hand so I used that, otherwise, I would have made my own icing. (just make certain that the cupcakes are completely cool before icing them!)
Add the coconut flakes to a small bowl, then turn the cupcake upside down inside the bowl to cover the icing with flakes. Isn’t it pretty? You get the snowy effect.
My kids added raisins for eyes, the orange Mini Reese’s piece for the nose and the brown one for the mouth. But you can easily change up the ingredients as you see fit. (just use what you have in the house as well to save yourself a trip to the store!)
We also added pretzel stick arms which just make it more fun. Put those on last so that they don’t soggy from being out too long.
I also made one that I rolled in crushed candy canes but my kids preferred the coconut flakes. Of course, these were snatched up so quickly by my kids that I think it took longer to decorate them.
(I do think that the crushed candy cane ones were cute, but it was a hard texture to try to eat for the kids.)
You’ll need to keep the cupcakes cool so the frosting or whipped cream doesn’t melt and your artwork disappears before you serve them. They’re perfect for a party for a winter party decorations.
We’ve made these up every single year and have so much fun every time. The kids never get tired of creating their own snowman and this post will show you just how simple and easy it is. May each person make their own perfect snowman!
