  • 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!
