Adorable Snowman Smiley Face Cake Decoration

Adorable Snowman Smiley Face Cake Decoration

Our simply cute snowman face is so easy to assemble. Children young and old will enjoy decorating this winter smiley face.Top your favorite round holiday cake: red velvet, carrot, or cheesecake with white frosting or cream cheese icing.

Cake Decorating Supplies List:

2 chocolate-covered peppermint patties, 1 round peppermint hard candy, tootsie rolls, cherry-flavored morsels, and a small tube of white icing.

Directions for making the cute snowman smiley face on your cake:
1. First determine placement of the eyes and smile. Lightly etch the eyes and mouth in the icing with a toothpick or knife. Place two peppermint patties on the cake for the eyes. Top each patty with a small circle of white icing, and add a cherry-chip morsel to the center.
2. Alternately place tootsie rolls and cherry flavored chips, forming the smile.
3. Place a round peppermint hard candy in the center for the nose. Squirt a dab of vanilla icing on the back of a cherry-flavored morsel and place in the middle of the peppermint candy.
4. Encircle the cake with a red plaid muffler to complete the festive winter look.

Full Snowman Cake:
When serving a large crowd, use three iced cakes, instead of one. Decorate the top as shown in our photograph. Position the other two cakes beneath the face and line chocolate covered peppermint patties down the center of each to resemble buttons on a snowman.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
