Instructions:

Step 1

Bake and cool snowman cakes. Trim off face area and hat brim front and sides; trim top of hat flat to stand upright (hat area will be body of snowman).

Step 2

Position cakes on cooling grid over waxed paper. After removing all foil from icing container, microwave at 30% power for 20-30 seconds; stirring at least once, until ready to pour. Pour icing over cakes. Let dry on waxed paper. Ice back of cakes smooth.

Step 3

Tint portions of fondant violet, green, red, orange, yellow and black. For hat brim, roll out green fondant 1/8 in. thick; cut a 1 in. diameter circle. For top of hat, shape a 3/4 in. high green tapered cone, 3/4 in. wide at top, tapering to 5/8 in. wide at bottom; attach to brim with damp brush. For hat band, roll a 1/8 in. rope of yellow fondant; wrap around hat, attaching with damp brush.

Step 4

For scarf, roll out red fondant 1/8 in. thick. Cut a strip, 1/4 in. wide. Position on cake where brim was trimmed away.

Step 5

For hands, roll violet fondant into 1/2 in. balls; flatten to 1/4 in. thick. Using knife, cut a V shape between thumb and finger area. Cut lollipop sticks to 2 1/2 in. long; insert a stick in each hand. Insert hands in cake at an angle.

Step 6

Roll small black balls for eyes and buttons and a thin black log for mouth. Attach with dots of icing. Roll a 1/4 in. orange cone for nose; attach with icing. Roll small white balls for cheeks; flatten and attach with icing.
