Snowman cakes, popcorn and cookies

An assortment of jolly snowmen, one made of cake, one of popcorn, the others cookie dough.

The Frosty Cake is from a quick mix. The secret to his shape: baking the white cake in two steep-sided heat-proof mixing bowls. Then you stack the cakes, frost them, and decorate with candies and a construction paper hat.

Our impish Popcorn Snowman is trying to keep a secret, too. Lift up his head and look under the jaunty yarn muffler. You’ll find a treasure — his body is hollow and can be filled with candy.

Swinging Snowmen Cookies are made with three sizes of oatmeal cookie balls — baked, dipped in icing, then stacked and trimmed to suit your fancy.
