Step 1

Frost a cooled cupcake, baked from your favorite recipe, with white icing. Flatten a large marshmallow on waxed paper with the palm of your hand. Cut a second marshmallow in half horizontally, then stack the halves on the first marshmallow to form a torso and head.

Push a thin pretzel stick down through the snowman (this will help him stand up), then set him on the cupcake.

Use decorators' gel to create a mouth, eyes and buttons, then add pretzel stick arms and a wedge cut from an orange slice candy for a nose.

Accessorize with a candy hat (a Junior Mint secured to a Thin Mint with icing) and a fruit leather scarf.
