I was inspired by Alan Dunn’s Christmas Cakes (a perfect gift for any cake enthusiast).

Pre-color the fondant and gumpaste, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and set to the side.
Prepare your mise en place.
The Snowman’s Body:
Knead half of the fondant with half of the gumpaste. Roll out the half n half kneaded paste, sprinkle with super fine sugar. Roll the paste out again, sprinkle a little more sugar, and gently roll the sugar into the paste.
Creating the Face of the Snowman and Placing Him on the Cake:
The scarf is made of three strips equal in wideness, two long and one short. Color a small amount of gumpaste light blue, knead well and roll out fairly thin. Using a ribbon cutter (or a ruler and a-ceto knife) cut three strips, lightly ball tool.
You will be amazed and cherish the time you spend with your family creating the snowman cake; watch your children’s eyes as your snowman comes to life!
