How to Make Snowman Cupcakes

What you’ll need to make these easy snowman cupcakes:

Snowman Cupcakes ingredients

Bake your vanilla cupcakes and let them cool completely before working with them (don’t want the frosting and fondant to melt).

Snowman Cupcakes ready to decorate

Take your fondant and roll 12 1½ inch fondant spheres and roll 12 more 1 inch fondant spheres. These will be the two different sizes needed to make your snowmen!

Fondant Spheres for Snowman Cupcakes

Take the smaller spheres and decorate them with the black marker. Take your orange fondant and create their carrot noses.

Making Snowman Cupcakes

Frost your cupcakes with a piping bag.

Frosting Snowman Cupcakes

Insert a toothpick into the larger sphere and place it on the frosted cupcake. Place the smaller sphere on top.

Building Snowman Cupcakes

Snap in half the pretzel rods and use them as the snowman’s arms.

  • Ensure that your cupcakes are cool before decorating.
  • Start by making your buttercream. In a stand mixer, beat butter, icing sugar and milk on high until smooth.
  • Scoop buttercream in a piping bag and frost each cupcake.
  • Roll out 12 1 ½ inch fondant spheres. Then, roll out 12 1-inch fondant spheres.
  • With your black marker, draw two eyes on the smaller spheres for the snowman’s eyes. On the larger spheres, draw three black dots, going down in a vertical line for the snowman’s buttons.
  • Form small “carrot” fondant pieces with your orange fondant. Place on snowman’s face, this will act as his “carrot nose.”
  • Insert a toothpick in one of the larger fondant spheres, leaving the toothpick sticking out on both ends. Insert the bottom portion of toothpick into a cupcake. Take a snowman head and place on top. Do this for every cupcake.
  • Snap off little pieces (you’ll need 24) of your mini pretzels and insert one the sides of snowman. These will act as his “tree branch” arms.
  • Enjoy and happy holidays!
