Here's online editor Jiae's recipe for adorable snowman cupcakes. Yum!
Pre-made or homemade cupcakes
Rice Krispie balls (in two diff sizes)
Blue, red and yellow food coloring
Twizzlers (the stringy kind)
Brown candy confetti sprinkles
2 Frosting cones or parchment paper
Snowmen: Take one small and one big Rice Krispie* ball and stick together with a toothpick (or glue together with icing). Cover body in white frosting. Roll frosted snowmen in coconut flakes. Lay snowmen down and use one frosting cone* filled with icing to glue eyes, mouth and buttons with candy confetti sprinkles. Take a teaspoon of white icing and add a drop of yellow and red food coloring to make orange. Place the orange icing in the second frosting cone. Squeeze a little nose on the face and pull up to make a tip. Lay completely flat till dry. Pull apart strips of Twizzler and wrap or tie around the snowmen’s neck to make a scarf.
Cupcakes: Add a couple drops of blue food coloring to make frosting blue. Ice cool downed cupcakes. Sprinkle a layer of coconut flakes. Plop snowman on top.
*Instructions for making Rice Krispie treats are on the cereal box. Once made, cover your palms with butter and roll into two diff sized small balls.*Roll a triangular piece of parchment paper into a cone to make a frosting cone.
