Frosty Was An Egghead!

I seem to be on a Daring Baker rerun kick, but ever since I made the December Challenge and had such success with the mushrooms, I wanted to make snowmen. I had hoped to make little gum paste carrot noses, but my overbaked meringue was so fragile, I didn’t think I could pull it off today with other multi-tasking going on in the kitchen.

The kids were thrilled with these. I melted a few chocolate chips in a zip baggie and snipped the corner off to make a decorating bag to apply the ‘coal’ dots. I dipped toothpicks in chocolate for the arms.

As I said, the meringue was fragile, so twice I managed to crush a snowman while attaching the arms. Like a page out of Calvin and Hobbes, here is the Anne Boleyn snowman:

If I make a yule log again, I’ll definitely make a couple of snowmen to go with it.  I tried making a couple of bowler hats, but I squished them. 😦

  1. You squished the bowler!? That’s funny, considering the Bowler’s original purpose.

  2. Those are too cute!

  3. So adorable!

  4. So darling! Man, you are creative. Love the Calvin & Hobbes snowman!

  5. MN — sad, but true. They were so fragile and I was rushing around like an ox and *poof* crushed meringue balls all over the place.

    Thanks ladies!
