do you want to build a snowman?

Do you have kids? Then you know that song. It’s been on repeat in our house for about a month.I think it’s also what inspired my kid to ask for a snowman cake for his 4th birthday last weekend. As all good mothers tend to do, I complied.

To create this snowman cake, I baked the cake in two different-sized stainless steel bowls, sliced the top half off of each, slathered the middles with delicious buttercream and placed the tops back on. I then covered each half in more buttercream and covered it all with fondant. The decorations are all fondant, except for the nose and arms which are fondant mixed with gumpaste. I also formed the arms around some wooden skewers which I stabbed into the sides of the cake. They helped the arms keep their shape and not fall off the edge of the platter.
