ingredients

  • Cake

  • 1 12 chocolate cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 12 cups water
  • 12 cup oil
  • Frosting

  • 12 cup butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) jar marshmallow cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Decoration and Assembly

  • 1 12 cups coconut flakes
  • 2 candy-coated chocolates (for eyes)
  • 2 drops white icing (for eyes)
  • 1 orange chewy candy
  • 5 -6 candies (mini chocolate balls)
  • 3 -4 candies (yellow sweet tart chews)
  • 2 candies (strawberry sour belts)

directions

  • For the Cake:

  • Hand mix the cocoa, eggs, water and oil in a bowl,.
  • Pour some of the batter into a large sized (8") baking bowl and the remaining into a medium (5") baking bowl.
  • Bake at 350F: 60 minutes for the larger bowl, 30 minutes for the smaller bowl.
  • After cooling, remove the cakes from the bowls, cut a hole into the larger cake and fill with the marshmallow cream frosting.
  • For the Frosting:

  • In a stand mixer, mix butter.
  • Add the marshmallow cream; mix again.
  • Add the powdered sugar, mix again.
  • For the Assembly:

  • Place the larger cake upside down on a cake stand; this is the bottom base of the snowman.
  • Cover with the marshmallow frosting.
  • Cover the smaller cake (the snowman’s head) with the marshmallow frosting and set on top of the bottom/larger cake; you may need to use a small round cardboard as a base to the head so it doesn’t slide off.
  • Cover the snowman with coconut flakes.
  • Pipe little pupils, using the white icing, on the candy-coated chocolates; then place them down, forming the eyes.
  • Add the chewing candy on the face, forming the nose.
  • Add the mini chocolate balls, forming the mouth.
  • Place the sweet & tart chews on the body, forming the buttons.
  • And wrap the strawberry sour belts around the neck, forming the scarf.
