This was for a friends granddaughter’s birthday. I used a soccer ball cake pan and three 8″ and three 10″ rounds to make this snowman cake. Using a dowel to support the entire cake and supporting the layers with wooden dowels and cake plates I carved the bottom layer to give the impression of a ball of snow.
Each layer was filled with butter cream and crumb coated before I covered them in white fondant. Once they were covered and stacked I applied a spackling of royal icing to give a textured look. Using fondant I made a scarf, hat, eyes nose and mouth and applied them with royal icing. I used icing whitener to give her eyes a reflection using a paintbrush. I also textured the cake board to make it look like snow as well.
