How to Make Melted Snowman Cupcakes

What You Need:

  • White, pink and orange fondant
  • Blade tool
  • Small ball tool
  • Black edible sugar pearls
  • Edible glue
  • White and pink edible luster dust
  • Food-safe paintbrushes
  • Circle cutters (a little larger than the top of your cupcake)

1. Make the Base

Cover the top of your cupcake with pink fondant, using a circle cutter that's slightly larger than the top of your treat.

2. Build the Snowman

Roll a small ball of white fondant and attach it to the top of your cupcake using edible glue. This is going to form the melted lump shape of your snowman's head.

Roll out white fondant and cut a circle the same size as your cupcake. Lightly brush it with white luster dust.

Using your blade tool, cut the edges of your white fondant circle to create a melted shape. Drape this over the top of your cupcake and attach with just a little edible glue.

3. Add a Face

Use the small ball tool to indent a pair of eye sockets in the head of your snowman. Add a little edible glue.

Attach two black edible sugar pearls into the sockets for your snowman's eyes.

Roll and mold a small amount of orange fondant into a teardrop shape and press a series of lines along it to give it a carrot-like texture. Attach with a dab of edible glue.

4. Jazz It Up With Some Final Touches!

Using a small ball tool, create a round mouth shape (or smile if you like) on your snowman's face. Then use pink edible petal dust and a food-safe paintbrush to apply some blush to its cheeks. Last up: Add on a few sprinkle snowflakes, if you like!
