Loveable Snowman Cake

My cousin’s daughter has asked for a Tinker Bell cake for her birthday for the past three years, but this year she asked for a snowman cake. (I guess five-year-olds are just too grown up for Tinker Bell). When I asked her what she wanted it to look like, she said that she wanted it to have a carrot nose and a pompom hat.

To make this snowman cake, I used the Wilton sports ball pan for the head and the doll pan plus a regular 8-inch round pan for the body. I started by covering the cake board with white fondant and coconut shavings.

To make the body, I stacked the doll cake on top of two layers of an eight-inch round cake and covered it with white fondant. I added three dowels to the center to help support the weight of the head. Read more about this Snowman cake…
