Snowman

We do not have any snow *sigh* does not quite feel like December yet, so have to use alternative means to get a dose of snowman.


I agee, this does not look like snow....


This could have been a snowball - you know one of those kinds with a lot of dirt in them as snow is hardly covering the ground, but you just had to make that snowball.... but this is rice crispies.


Now it starting to look like something - after vast use of white fondant, no wonder Buddy and Co. in Cake Boss have a sheeter to do all the fondant rolling instead of doing it by hand. Call him (or is it a her judging from the hat and scarf??) Melding Snowman. The body - pound cake - cracked when covering it with fondant, so he looks deform - the rice crispy ball is his head.


Here is my result - my first attemt of making the snowman. We discussed with the instructor and we all agreed, as this is actually meant as a cake eye catcher and not the cake itself - body should also be made of rice crispy as it would otherwise get to heave.

 
These are both the creations of the course (4 hours) instructor at SpecialkĂžbmanden - red one is her original one and light blue version was her snowman of the day when showing us how to make the various details.
 
My question is now: will I ever have the guts to eat my snowman? Since there is cake inside, it will not last very long before it starts getting bad.

Love your process. Aren't all snowmen indoors meant to be eaten?
