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.
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.
We also added pretzel stick arms which just make it more fun.
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.
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 party for a winter party decorations.
