Making snowman cupcakes are ideal for keeping kids occupied during the cold and wet days of winter weather, in the warmth of the kitchen. The fun of ‘building a snowman’ to decorate vanilla filled cupcakes certainly appeals to young people as well as to the not so young! If you want to cut down on the candy for the face, then use decorating gel, which works just as well. Otherwise, finish the snowman face with sprinkles or else some small round candy corn and some fruit leather. Mugs of hot chocolate together with snowman cupcakes are most appealing winter treats.
