You don’t have to add a candy kiss beret to make him French, but we just had to. The fun with these snowman cupcakes is decorating them however you like. The kitchen crew gathered various candy, put on some Christmas music and had a ball.
Since no two snowmen are alike or perfect, this is a wonderful baking project to do with the kids…everyone can express their creativity. This holiday season, or anytime you want a little winter wonderland in your belly, gather any fun candy decorations you have around the house and have a snow ball!
