To prepare a Frosty the Snowman Cake:

A few days before putting my cake together I made the frosting. I prefer to us butter cream frosting because it holds up better when you have layered cakes. Make sure to whip the butter cream well before using it.

I made my own fondant. I prefer to make my own Marshmallow fondant; I find that it tastes and looks a lot better then the store bought one. The Fondant may be made up to 2 days ahead. Make sure to wrap your fondant in plastic wrap and store it in an air tight container.

For the cake I used a basic pound cake recipe. You will need 6 metal salad bowls. 2 large bowls for the base, 2 medium bowls for the center and 2 small bowls for the head. I find that using non stick spray works well. I also cut parchment paper in circles to fit into the bottom of the bowls.

You must be careful and keep a close eye on the bowls while they are cooking and adjust the temperatures as they will cook differently then the 9" rounds.

Once cakes were cooled, I trimmed them and cut the rounds in 3 and frosted them. I stacked each section and chilled them overnight. I trimmed the cakes and shaped them, dirty iced it (to coat with a thin layer of butter cream icing). Then refrigerate again.

I then portioned out the fondant and used food coloring. I find that the paste is better then the liquid. I then made the roses, leaves and flowers.

I used rice krispys squares for the hat and covered it with black fondant. The pipe was also made with rice krispy squares. At this point I attached the trim and flowers to the hat. I attached them using a bit of water that I brushed onto the places were I wanted to attach the items.

I covered each round section of cake with white fondant and carefully stacked them. To secure the cakes together; I pushed a wooden dowel threw the top of the cake, being careful not to damage anything.

Once the cakes were stacked I was able to decorate the snowman. At the base of the Snowman I piped a decorative border. Out of black fondant I shaped the eyes to look like coal, the nose to look like a button.

I made the scarf out of rolled blue fondant and attaching the flowers. Again using a bit of water that I brushed onto the places were I wanted to attach the items.

Next, I thinly rolled out a bit of black fondant and shaped the mouth and attached the pipe. Last but not least, I placed the hat on his head.
